Steel Pens, usually considered a modern invention, were in use many ages ago. Probably their origin had a date as far back as the Pyramids, thus affording another evidence of the truth of the saying ‘"there is nothing new under the sun."’ In the 1st verse of the 17th chapter of the Prophecy of Jeremiah, we have the evidence in the following words. ‘"The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron and with the point of a diamond."’
