Available is a stunning 45mm carving knife made from 5000 year old English bog oak 

 

Blade: Handforged blade from Kay Embretsen in Sweden and is 45mm long. The blade is made with a carbon steel center, and mild steel on the sides. This makes the blade easy to sharpen.

 

Handle: The handle is crafted from a stunning piece of 5000 year old bog oak from the Lincolnshire fens.

 

The bog oak has been dug up from the Lincolnshire fens and carefully air dried then kiln dried before being quarter sawn to give a beautifully contrasting pattern.

 

Radio carbon dating has shown these ancient giant oaks to be around 3300BC.

 

There is also the addition of oak trim using a beam from the roof restoration at Oxburgh Hall in Norfolk built in 1482 and visited by Henry VII and his queen Elizabeth of York.

 

Leather: The knife is being sold with a handstitched leather sheath and belt loop. Walpier Rocky is a heavyweight 100% pure vegetable tanned leather produced on full grain shoulders. The raw material of Rocky is made from the finest of French Bulls. Rocky shoulders have a resin finish on the reverse side. Produced by Italian tannery Conceria Walpier. A member of the Consorzio Vera Pelle Italiana.

 

The leather sheath comes with a Pelle Vegetale Guarantee Consortium Swing Tag certifying the traceability of the origin, the correct execution of the tanning process and the natural characteristics of the vegetable-tanned leather produced by the tanneries associated with the consortium.

 

Each trademarked certificate label is printed with anti-counterfeiting techniques and bears a progressive serial number that allows the consortium to identify, at any time and anywhere in the world, both the tannery supplying the leather and the manufacturer of the product. Each label has a QR code for more information.

 

To help keep your handle in good condition the knife includes a tin of Ash & Axe organic Cambridge beeswax and tung oil/ Linseed oil wax.
