Our Style fountain pen, with its classic styling, is the perfect fountain pen gift. The balance of the pen and smoothness of the nib as it glides across the working paper will ensure your pen gift will not sit in a drawer but will accompany its user every day ready to lay thoughts to paper, and every time it is used, the creativity of your gift will be remembered.
The wood in this pen is Irish Grown Elm, a rare wood in itself, but we have taken this pen one step further by using BURLED Irish Elm. The Elm came originally from the midlands of Ireland; we got the wood from a clockmaker who retired and had lots of Elm over 30 years in his stores, too small for his work but perfect for our pens. Only a tiny proportion of the wood was burled, making your pen extra special, rare and unique also! The grain and colour of this wood are so beautiful; you could say that the patterns are manic, nothing makes sense, and that is what makes it so rare and so different.
The Style fountain pen is fitted with a German manufactured bi-colour size 5 nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest of fountain pen users.
The pen is presented in a luxurious gift box with a card detailing the wood it was made from. We also include a card stating what date and by whom the pen was hand-turned.
The fountain pen ink flows from an international standard-sized ink cartridge, easily 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 the 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; 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!
We post our pens in our recyclable pen gift box wrapped in corrugated card and place in a biodegradable mailer bag; it's our way of greening what we do and minimising our impact on the environment.
The pen pictured was handmade by us; your pen will be of the same wood, as no two wood pieces are the same; that is your certainty that your pen will be unique. Like the pen pictured, we will select the most interesting wood to craft your pen from. It takes us about 3 days to craft a pen.
