Luscious and Earthy are not often words you associate with a fountain pen. Still, the combination of ancient bog oak and a provocative dark smoky smooth pen trim with its touch of gold creates an aura of satisfaction in owning a Shannon Eclipse fountain pen. The Eclipse pens exquisite styling is enriched by the Peter Bock gold and polished steel bi-colour nib we install, ensuring this fountain pen delivers a total sensual writing experience.  

Our Shannon fountain pen range is named after the largest river in Ireland; this fountain pen will impress any connoisseur of fountain pen writing. Like a river of ink, the pen carries its user's thoughts and creativity from their consciousness to paper effortlessly.

Resting on a writing desk, nestled in a notebook or sitting staunchly on a writing pad on a meeting or board room table, this Shannon fountain pens design and the detail in the wood we used make it unique, a gift that will impress its user and will be noticed by those who see it in use. The gift you gave will be remembered every time this fountain pen is held and its ink flows.

We do not rush things in Ireland! We have crafted the pen using bog oak older than the Pyramids; this pen is more than 5,000 years in the making! The beauty of Bog Oak is in its feel and colour, so to ensure we don't mask that experience, we finish our pens in special oils that Bog Oak sculptors use to capture the essence of every minute of the 5,000 years of history in this pen.

The Shannon Eclipse fountain pen is fitted with a size six medium tip Peter Bock German manufactured bi-colour size six nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest fountain pen users.

The fountain pen ink flows from an international standard-sized ink cartridge, readily available from all stationery shops worldwide. Open on this site also.

We also provide an ink pump with the pen; this pump allows bottled ink to be used in pen, fill the pump with your favourite bottled ink and insert it into the cell and you're ready to write.

We also make this pen as a rollerball. Click for a quick look

Sustainability is high on everyone's agenda; by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill, you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfill every year.

Give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump; the only thing you don't use is the empty glass ink bottle that is recycled; how green is that?

We post our pens in our recyclable pen gift box wrapped in a corrugated card and placed in a biodegradable mailer bag; it's our way of greening what we do and minimising our environmental impact.

At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you and leave the text on the cart page.
