Classic ballpoint in Irish Yew

Regular price €60,00

Yes this is a Classic styling for a ballpoint pen, clean uncomplex lines, smooth but positive twist-action to advance the ballpoint refill, the bright Chrome or Gold trim are of a very high standard delivering a luxurious look and feel to these handmade pens. This is all set off by the Irish woods we have used to craft the pen from. This Classic pen could be that perfect gift to your self or that special person, so, if your thinking, "Maybe I should," please do!

The wood we have used is Irish Yew;

Yew has played a tremendous role in shaping religious beliefs, being associated with immortality and rebirth, or a spiritual resurrection. To the ancient Celts and Druids, it was a sacred tree and adorned many of their religious sites. Churches were often built on these ancient religious sites and inherited the yew trees already there - one can find a yew tree in many a churchyard.
Muckross Abbey, and a huge Yew tree in the middle of the Abbey’s cloister. It was planted when the friary was first built in 1448 by Dónal McCarthy Mór – the chieftain of the area. That same tree can still be seen and enjoyed today – it’s an old Irish Yew tree.
One fact is certain, however, trees, including the yew, were, like the Sun and Moon, instrumental in the formation of just about all literary and religious traditions and a major inspiration to many artists. It seems that the 'wise' was always associated with trees.

Place your order and we will put your Classic pen in the post to you or your intended recipient.  

 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.
