10829_BogOakwithFiresteelPose

The Casström Woodsman Knife, designed by Roger Harrington, with a beautiful Bog Oak handle.

It is quite possible that the tree used on the handle of this knife was growing around the time that Stonehenge was being constructed. Or around the time that Ötzi, the 'Tyrolean Iceman' met his end in the Alps.

This is an ancient knife.

Bog Oak is not a species of tree, rather it is a term given to the sub-fossilised oak trees preserved by the acidic and anaerobic conditions found in peat bogs. The characteristic black quality of Bog Oak is a result of a chemical reaction occurring between tannins in the oak and soluble irons present in the mineral subsoil.

Leaving aside the ancient provenance and unique beauty, the simple truth is that Bog Oak has many other unique characteristics. It has a weight and density comparable with the most highly valued tropical hardwoods. It is also a tone wood and so can be used to make stringed musical instruments.

There is clearly a finite supply of Bog Oak which is in decline, so there will soon come a time when there are simply no more of these beauties buried in the peat. It truly is the nation's rarest and most precious wood.
