    I remember borrowing and lending of ink among students in the class. It was like fighter jets being refueled in the air, one pen’s nib in contact with the other pen’s nib, a little mistake and you end up with spoiled blue hands. There used to be some snobs who were always so reluctant to lend you few drops of badly needed ink. I hope those guys are not like that anymore.


    In 1960 and uptil 1990, Eagle pen domains the market of fountain pen due its superb quality and craftmanship, in our
    school and college era in 60s to 80s, we students used this pen,
    Once i have also visited this Eagle pen factory, situated in Karachi SITE area near Eastern film Studio, with the name of
    Azad Pen Factory-Karachi.
    It seems this great product is nomore in market due to closure of Azad Pen factory-Karachi,

    Saad. once again thanks for the informative message and giving us some more history of Eagle pen. I grew up writing with Eagle pen in my school days – therefore I am always in awe for this industry.
