Our Shannon rollerball pen is named after the largest river in Ireland; this rollerball pen will impress any connoisseur of 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 rollerball 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 rollerball pen is held and its ink flows.
The yew has significantly shaped religious beliefs associated with immortality and rebirth or 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 can still be 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.
We install an all-Swiss-made rollerball refill in this pen; the Swiss-made water-based ink in the refill delivers a smooth and free-flowing writing experience like a printer connected directly to your consciousness.
The rollerball refill is a standard international size and is available in any stationary store, online or on our website.
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.
