Product Description
Writing with this Grifos Nero Muse fountain pen is like holding a piece of history in your hand. The barrel is hand-turned from an ancient wood known as “bog oak,” found in the swamps of eastern Europe and carbon-dated to be up to 5,460 years old—that's roughly 1,000 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza!

I have been using the bog oak fountain pen with white gold fine nib for the last 130 pages of writing in combination with various J. Herbin inks. Both posted and unposted, this is a very comfortable pen in-hand. The blackened oak barrel is nicely matte-finished and warm to the touch at all times, unlike my stainless steel Lamys and enamel and silver Chopards (as well as others). Gold nibs always seem to be worth the expense. Right feel Right heft Right nib design Right nib material (18K white gold) Write happy Write forever

Is it possible to convert a roller ball to fountain pen down the track if we would prefer or vice versa @Stubnib ?

Hello, thank you for your attention on our handmade silver and fossil wood pens, actually we have both (roller and fountain pen) available here on this Drop. Then if you purchase a roller pen and then after you purchase a fountain pen point section is possible to use it as fountain pen (is enough you do not use converter refilling system but only international standard cartridges since the converter end will not fit the end of the barrel since too long). Then the contrary (from fountain to roller pen) isn't possible since the roller refill will drop inside the fountain pen barrel too long for it). I remain at your disposal! Best regards from aosta Velly, Italy. Maurizio

All right, folks. I'm a bit new to pens so maybe this is my fault, but my bog oak simply will not write. Not a line, not a spot, nada. I made sure the converter is inserted correctly. Is there anything I can do about this? Or did I just buy a beautiful-but-utterly-useless item?

I’m curious about this issue too. I am in Switzerland and when I put in my address, I only see an additional charge of about 4 bucks for shipping and handling. Is that accurate, given the forgoing discussion?

Hello, sure, as wrote previously we from Italy ship the wholesale order to Massdrop in US then Massdrop re ship them in all the world countries where customers are, so for the shipping from US to Switzerland they take 4$. (Nothe that Switzerland customs could ask you more money when the packet will arrive, the import tax amount depend from your country laws about import of these items) Regards from Italy. Maurizio

I purchased the rollerball from this drop and love it. Unfortunately I broke the plastic tip off the end of the pen when I dropped it on a hard surface. I tried emailing the Grifos support team a week ago but they didn’t reply. Does anyone know who I might be able to contact to send the pen for repair?

I have received back the repaired pen tip, and it looks just like new. I am so pleased and grateful, and even more so seeing as you took care of me so graciously at no charge. Thanks so much Maurizio!! I'm so glad to have my Bog Oak working again :)

Yes. The first FP option is : no pen, only rollerball.
