Irish Pens

Style fountain pen | Gold | Irish Yew

Regular price €80,00

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 Yew tree has played a tremendous role in shaping religious beliefs associated with immortality and rebirth or spiritual resurrection. To the ancient Celts and Druids, it was a sacred tree 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 – it’s an old Irish Yew tree.
One fact is certain; however, trees, including the yew, were, like the Sun and Moon, instrumental in the formation of just about all literary and religious traditions and a major inspiration to many artists. It seems that the 'wise' were consistently associated with trees.

 

Pen facts

  • German manufactured bi-colour size 5 nib; this ensures a smooth writing experience even for the fussiest of fountain pen users.
  • 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 pen used 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 the pen, fill the pump with your favourite bottled ink and insert it into the pen and you’re ready to write.

Solid oak pen box upgrade

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 personal massage
  • Add a logo to the inner lid
  • We can also engrave the top of the box, just 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.

 


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.
