Today more than ever, we are looking for ways to reconnect with our heritage, looking for things that link us with the past, authentic, timeless, things that make the past come alive, and that’s why we have used Irish wood that carries in its very DNA the history of Ireland to craft these classically designed writing instruments.
If you are looking for a special gift that will become part of its owner’s life and will acknowledge its creative personality, the Woodland gift set, we believe, will exceed your expectations.
Bog Oak is older than the Pyramids; the wood in this pen has restated for thousands of years in the bog waters absorbing the country's very DNA. The blackness and grain pattern of this very special wood is your certainty that each pen is completely unique; no two pens are the same or could be the same; it is not often you get the opportunity to hold something as rear or old in your hand every day. 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 the same oils Irish Bog Oak sculptors use so you can experience every minute of the 5,000 years of history when you hold your pen.
Our specially selected Irish burled Elm and bog oak complement the highest jewellery grade Rhodium, and Titanium finishes to produce our Woodland writing set of fountain pen and ballpoint pen. We have installed a Peter Bock-made nib in the fountain pen and an all-Swiss-made ballpoint refill to ensure that both pens deliver the best possible writing experience. Replacement rollerball refills are available worldwide, as are Peter Bock nibs. We also stock them on our website.
When individuality becomes increasingly rare, we can engrave either or both pens for you. 18 characters maximum, we suggest not detracting from the wood's beauty.
SOLID IRISH OAK PEN BOX
Presenting a high-quality handmade writing pen for an extraordinary occasion?
Enhance your pen gift with an exceptional pen box. Our clients worldwide have asked us for a wooden gift/presentation box for our pens. So, to satisfy our clients, we have worked with a local master cabinetmaker to craft a solid wooden pen box handmade in Cavan from Irish Oak. Irish Oak, the "King of the forest", was the obvious choice for us as it represents many of Ireland’s qualities. Like our wooden pens, the box is as unique as your fingerprints.
We are reluctant to sell Rosewood boxes anymore because of Rosewood’s status as an endangered species.
We engrave your words directly into the Irish Oak. If you have any special text requests or perhaps a logo you would like engraved, please email, or call us any time to discuss.
The box is 180mm long, 70mm wide and 50mm high; 220 gm in weight bottom is lined with a green baize fabric with an oak pen rest. The hinges are an antique brass finish. The box is sealed with lacquer not to hide any of the wood’s natural beauty.
We engrave our registered "The Trees" trademark on the box lid. The box is wrapped in branded tissue paper and then wrapped in a recyclable card to protect it during shipping. This is a 100% environmental option for that exceptional pen gift box.
As a personal, corporate, or club gift, no other pen in the world is exactly like yours!
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.
- The fountain pen used a Peter Bock-made size 5 nib; it comes with an internationally sized ink cartridge and an ink pump converter, so bottled ink can also be used.
- The ballpoint pen uses a Parker-type standard-sized refill available on this website and in stationers worldwide.
- The pen trim is a combination of jewellery-grade Rhodium and Gold Titanium
- We can craft the set in any trim combination or wood you wish; send us an email with your requirements, and we would love to work with you in creating your perfect writing gift set. firstname.lastname@example.org
