Pens have been around for a long time, since about 4000 BC. but it wasn't until the 1880's that the ball point pen was invented and in the 1960's the roller balls and soft tips came about. My favorite pens are gel pens - the ink for these pens was invented back in 1984.
According to Encarta Encyclopedia, making copies of the Bible is one of the things that pushed along the betterment of ink pens.
