Newest Creation - from 1000 Year Old Wood

Irish Bog Oak is the result of trees and forests that have become buried in the boglands of Ireland for centuries. The lack of oxygen in the bogs prevents the decay of these woods and preserved these trees for thousands of years. Carbon dating has shown some samples to be up to 7,000 years old. An anaerobic reaction within the bog turns the usually light wood of oak to a deep black. The longer the time spent in the bog, the darker the wood has become.

This pen is a deep black colour throughout. There is just something about a black pen that shouts Class!

This pen is from my Niagara line, and while similar in appearance to the Baron, it is in fact larger, and has all metal hardware. The larger size really shows off the Irish Bog Oak on this pen, while maintaining a nice balance in the hand while writing. This Niagara Pen features Titanium Gold hardware for a lifetime of brilliance, and a German made Rollerball insert for smooth writing performance.

The Niagara line comes packaged in a hinged Leatherette display and presentation box.

This pen is FOR SALE -- $150.00 Contact me using the ABOUT ME on the right hand side of this page if you are interested.
