Luscious and Earthy are not often words you associate with a rollerball 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 Feadán Eclipse rollerball pen. The Eclipse pen's exquisite styling is enriched by the Swiss-made rollerball refill we install, ensuring this pen delivers a total sensual writing experience.
We designed our Feadán <Fa-don> pen range so routine writing tasks become infinitely more enjoyable; utilising a simple and minimalist form, we pay homage to the beauty of the wood we craft from; the wood's utterly original character gives certainty that each Feadán is unique. Feadán is the Irish word for tube, and the shape and function of a tube is to allow unfettered movement within it; a Feadán is a tactile conduit enabling the unfettered flow of feelings to paper for the personal writing task that is anything but routine when words and emotion are so expressive that they need to be shared as has always been the way in Irish literary heritage, holding a pen made from wood grown in Ireland is a beautiful way to connect with that heritage.
Irish Bog Oak, older than the pyramids, is used for this pen; the bog oak lay in Irish bog waters for over 5000 years, giving it a distinctive, very dark colour before it was exposed once again to the Irish sunlight. An exceptional wood.
The tangible, the natural and the intangible aspects of Irish heritage are all captured in this beautiful bog oak, a wood used in Irish historical sites. This wood came from rich boglands where it rested for over 5,000 years and was raised to become part of the folklore myths, legends and traditions that shaped our identity. We craft the wood with great care, shaping it with the sharpest tools, sanding it with great care to a smooth, almost sensual touch and then applying a blend of oils that allow us to protect the wood while paying homage to its beauty and heritage, a significant handmade gift.
The tubular design is very tactile; holding the pen has a playfulness to it, and lining up the wood grain each time the cap is posted is fun and addictive.
Laying or standing on a desk, resting on a notepad at a meeting, the Feadán will be noticed, but as with all good design, form must follow function, so we installed an all-Swiss-made medium point refill. Replacements are available in all good stationery shops.
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 landfills 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?
When individuality becomes increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you.
