Feadán Rollerball Pen handmade in Irish Bog Oak

Regular price €130,00

We designed our Feadán <Fa-don> pen range. Hence, 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 woods 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 intimate 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, a wood older than the pyramids, was used for this pen; the bog oak lay in Irish bog waters for over 5000 years, giving it the distinctive very dark colour before it was exposed once again 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, a wood that 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 apply 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. Still, as with all good design, form must follow function, so we installed an all Swiss-made rollerball refill to deliver the finest writing experience. The pen takes standard rollerball refills widely available. 

The ends of the pen are turned slightly concaved so the pen will stand tall on its own.

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

Sustainability is high on everyone’s agenda; 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.

Please give one of our fountain pens with our ink pump, and the only thing you don't use is the empty glass ink bottle that is recycled; how green is that!

At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you, leave the text on the cart page.
