We designed our Feadán <Fa-don> pen range. Hence, routine writing tasks become infinitely more enjoyable; utilising a minimalist and straightforward 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.

Older than the pyramids, Irish Bog Oak is used for this pen; the bog oak lay in Irish bog waters for over 5000 years, giving it a distinctive, dark colour before it was exposed to the Irish sunlight. An extraordinary 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 or 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 a size 6 Peter Bock nib as standard; the pen also takes an ink pump and international standard-sized cartridge.

We also make this pen as a rollerball click for a look

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 and leave the text on the cart page.

  • Peter Bock medium nib fitted as standard.
  • Ink converter pump supplied.
  • Accepts international-sized ink cartridge
  • Pen length 145mm or 5.7 inches capped 127mm or 5 inches uncapped

Are you 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; as Rosewood is a protected species, we collaborated with a local expert cabinetmaker to craft a solid Irish Oak pen box. Oak, the "King of the forest", was the obvious choice for us as it represents Ireland’s qualities. Like our wooden pens, each box is as unique as your fingerprints.

  • Box Facts:
  • Solid Oak
  • Suitable for one or two pens
  • Oak pen rests
  • Engrave the inner lid with your message
  • Add a logo to the inner lid
  • We can also engrave the top of the box; contact us to discuss your requirements
  • 180mm long | 70mm wide | 50mm high | 220 gm | baize fabric-lined base | antique brass hinge
  • The box is wrapped in branded tissue paper and then wrapped in a recyclable card to protect it during shipping. 100% environmental option for that special pen gift box.

The pen pictured was handmade by us; your pen will be of the same wood; as no two wood pieces are the same, your certainty is that your pen will be unique. Like the pen pictured, we will select the most exciting wood to craft your pen from. It takes us about 3 days to prepare a pen.

Masterful Quality

As a treat to myself I bought the Irish Bog Oak Feadán fountain pen. Having been in the market for a good quality pen, I settled on this beautifully made Irish design. It is of impeccable quality, beautifully presented and is a first-rate pen. It writes incredibly smoothly and the smooth wood provides an incredible hold and sensation. I could not be happier with my order, which was shipped quickly alongside inks and blotting paper. Thank you incredibly for a unique piece of the Irish landscape!

Hi Tadhg, we are delighted that you are happy with the Feadán fountain pen; we wish you many years of creative writing with it. Regards Richard & Catherine

Your pen made my day

Dear Catherine and Richard,
As a collector and as a 2020 Christmas present to myself, I purchased your Irish Bog Oak Fountain Pen and just wanted you to know that I am so very, very pleased with it! It’s beautiful, extremely well made, and exceeds all of my expectations!

I was very impressed by how well made it is and by how smoothly it writes thanks to the great nibs you use. The ink flows well and the pen itself is very comfortable to hold, which is important to me.

Why even the box and packaging was great! I waited purposely until Christmas morning to open the box and I was very excited by what I saw. You have a wonderful product here and your attention to detail is phenomenal - well done on all counts from pen to packaging. I cannot wait to show and tell my pen aficionado friends all about it, to recommend you both, and most importantly, to make future purchases for myself too. Thank you again

Hi Jean, thank you for the review, we are so happy we played just a little part in making the holidays a bit more fun for you. Thank you you for agreeing to us using your review on the website. Richard
