Around the 6th century and last until the 19th century, the quill rises to the stage which is something that is more familiar to the average person than the reed pen is, due to its signature feather look. Although literature may have spread, literacy declined throughout Europe, this became the medium between parchment (papyrus declined in usage) and ink as literature spread geographically over to places such as Western Europe and the British Isles. Typically, the best quills are from turkeys due to their particular hard feather tips. During this time period, though, turkeys did not exist in Europe, so Geese feathers were used commonly. The feather should be about 12 inches in length. The feather is cut down to 8 or 9 inches from the top because the ending of the feather tended to be a nuisance. The shaft or base of the feather is then stripped of the filament left from the extraction from the bird.
