Today, more than ever, we are looking for ways to reconnect with our heritage, looking for authentic, timeless things that link us with the past and make the past come alive. Thathat'sy, we have used Irish wood, which carries in its very DNA the history of Ireland, to craft these classically designed writing instruments.

If you are looking for a special gift for a very special couple that will become part of its owner's life and acknowledge their creative personality, the Woodland gift set will, we believe, exceed your expectations.

The pens are made with Irish Grown Elm, a rare wood in itself, but we have taken this set one step further by using BURLED Irish Elm. The grain and colour of this wood are so beautiful; you could say that the patterns are manic, nothing makes sense, and that makes it so rare and so different. The Elm came originally from the midlands of Ireland; we got the wood from a clockmaker who retired and had many Elm offcuts built up in his stores for over 30 years, too small for his work but perfect for our pens. Only a tiny proportion of the wood was burled, making your pen extra particular, rare, and unique!

Bog Oak is older than the Pyramids; the wood in the pen has restated for thousands of years in the bog waters, absorbing the country's DNA. The blackness and grain pattern of this exceptional wood is your certainty that each pen is unique; no two pens are the same or could be the same; it is not often you get the opportunity to hold something as rare or old in your hand every day. The beauty of Bog Oak is in its feel and colour, so to ensure we don't miss 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 pens and rollerball pens. We have installed a Peter Bock-made nib in the fountain pen and an all-Swiss-made rollerball refill with Swiss ink and Swiss components 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.

We can engrave either or both pens for you when individuality becomes increasingly rare. 

  • The fountain pen uses a Peter Bock-made size five 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 standard-sized Parker-type ballpoint refills 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; email us your requirements, and we would love to work with you to create your perfect writing gift set. info@irishpens.ie
