Wooden closed end fountain pen handmade in Ancient Irish Bog Oak. This is a beautiful handmade quality closed end fountain pen. The comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish. The pen is made from Ancient Irish Bog Oak with Gold coloured metal fittings. Features a concave shaped closed end with no metal fittings on the end of the pen. The pen is longer than average but is very well balanced and feels great in the hand. Makes great Graduation, Birthday, executive or 5th Wood Anniversary, teacher or Retirement gift. Features a medium German nib. Makes a great gift or a great addition to your collection. The pen is approximately 160mm long and 15mm at the widest wooden part including the cap. About 150mm uncapped from the tip of the nib o the end of the pen. The pen is quite large but feels well balanced and would be great for anyone who likes a larger pen. The pen accepts small 'International' ink cartridges (Two are included), or a refillable ink reservoir also included. It will be shipped in a black card presentation box as pictured. The Bog oak has a weight and density to rival the most highly valued tropical hardwoods, it is also the only native tree to provide black wood. A small gift card will be sent with the item giving details of the Bog Oak. All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded with ten grades of micro mesh, sealed, polished and waxed to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
