Our Shannon fountain pen is named after the largest river in Ireland; this fountain pen will impress any connoisseur of fountain pen writing. Like a river of ink, the pen carries its user's thoughts and creativity from their consciousness to paper effortlessly.

Resting on a writing desk, nestled in a notebook or sitting staunchly on a writing pad on a meeting or board room table, this Shannon fountain pens design and the detail in the wood we used make it unique, a gift that will impress its user and will be noticed by those who see it in use. The gift you gave will be remembered every time this fountain pen is held and its ink flows.

The yew has significantly shaped religious beliefs associated with immortality and rebirth, or a spiritual resurrection. It was a sacred tree to the ancient Celts and Druids and adorned many of their holy 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 vast 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 is still seen and enjoyed today – an old Irish Yew tree.
One fact is inevitable; however, trees, including the yew, were, like the Sun and Moon, instrumental in forming just about all literary and religious traditions and a major inspiration to many artists. It seems that the 'wise' was always associated with trees.

The Shannon fountain pen is fitted with a German-manufactured bi-colour size six nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest of fountain pen users.

The fountain pen ink flows from an international standard-sized ink cartridge, readily available from all stationery shops worldwide. Available on this site also.

We also provide an ink pump with the pen; this pump allows bottled ink to be used in pen, fill the pump with your favourite bottled ink and insert it into the pen and you're ready to write.

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.

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?

We post our pens in our recyclable pen gift box wrapped in corrugated cards and placed in a biodegradable mailer bag; it's our way of greening what we do and minimising our environmental impact.

At a time when individuality is becoming increasingly rare, we can engrave the pen for you.

  • Your pen gift is presented in our deluxe gifting package
  • Luxurious pen gift box
  • Detail card on the wood used in the pen
  • Instruction card
  • Ink pump and ink cartridges so the pen can be used on the receipt
  • A personal note from Catherine and Richard Daly

Solid oak pen gift box upgrade

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. This is a 100% environmental option for that exceptional pen gift box.

The pen pictured was handmade by us; your pen will be of the same wood, as no two pieces are the same. That is your certainty 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 three days to prepare a pen.
