Why not have a look at this stunning Celtic brass fountain pen? This pen combines the deep history of the wood with traditional scrollwork synonymous with Ireland to give an overall Celtic look and feel to the pen. The Celtic Knot motif dates back to the 5th century. The pictures don't do the detail in the wood justice. 

The Celtic designs on the top of the pen and band make this a real statement piece. A Celtic knot is engraved on the top and along with the beautiful Irish Bog Oak between 4000-6000 years old, this is a pen that will be loved for years. Your new pen will come with an information sheet explaining how Irish bog oak is created and its history within Ireland.

The finial of the pen is adorned with an emerald green cabochon to top off the pen. 

Ink: The pen comes with an international converter to use your own bottled inks, and a cartridge to get you started straight out of the box.  

The pen also comes enclosed in a beautiful case providing the maximum presentation and also safely storing your fine writing instrument. 

 This is an OOAK pen and the wood on each has unique grain patterns which cannot be replicated.

Variations in the water level, floods, and marshes formation promote the growth of oak trees. Because of a continuous change of the direction of the river flow on a greater or lesser degree, the mainstreams weave through the valleys constantly forming live meanders. In its meandering course, the river undermines the banks covered with trees, which fall into the river and are swept away in the water. When the trunk gets trapped by its branches and roots in the river bed, over time layers of mud, sand, and gravel cover it. Deprived of oxygen the wood undergoes the process of fossilization and a long process of morta formation. During hundreds and thousands of years, under the influence of the minerals and iron from the water, the decomposition of oak timber is considerably slower. A special role is played by the currents of the underground waters in the creation of morta, binding its ingredients with larger quantities of the tannin in the wood and in this way darkening the wood. This centuries-long process often termed "maturation", turns the wood from golden brown to completely black, while increasing its hardness to such a level that it can only be carved with the use of specially ground and exceptionally firm tools. The time necessary for the oak to transform from the end of its biological growth to abonos varies. The "maturation" commonly lasts thousands of years. Due to the ecological reasons mentioned above no two trunks can be found of the same colour.
