quill pen

A quill pen is a traditional writing instrument made from the feather of a bird, typically a goose, swan, or crow. The process involves cutting and shaping the feather to create a pointed nib that serves as the pen’s writing tip. Quill pens were widely used throughout history before the invention of modern steel or fountain pens. They were favored for their fine and flexible writing qualities, making them suitable for calligraphy, fine art, and intricate lettering. Though largely replaced by more convenient writing instruments, the quill pen remains a symbol of craftsmanship, artistry, and the historical roots of writing.
