This is a one-off pen and the wood on each has its unique grain patterns which cannot be replicated. During hundreds and thousands of years, because of minerals and iron from the water, the rotting of oak timber is slower.
A special role is played by the underground waters in the creation and darkening the wood. Over thousands of years, the wood turns from golden brown to black, this makes it very hard and needs to be worked with sharp tools.
You will own a piece of irish history in your hands with this fine writing instrument. A piece is selected from seasoned wood for its grain and colour. They are carefully cut to show the best grain.
The wood is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sandpaper. It is then rubbed with danish oil to bring out the beautiful grain then rubbed with a beeswax mix before completing with the premium fittings.
I hope you fall in love with your one of a kind pen whether it is for you or as a wooden gift. Every pen i sell is made in my shop by me. Each is handmade and great care is taken.
