Available is a stunning ancient English oak knife


Handle: The handle is made from a piece of oak from a storm damaged tree several hundred years of age giving it a beautiful shade of browns. The rear of the handle has been inserted a piece of brass tubing and the knife comes with a length of leather thong cut by hand from a vegetable tanned shoulder of leather.


Between the handle and the blade is piece of English yew & ancient bog oak thousands of years old buried deep in the bogs of Lincolnshire.  Bog Oak is one of the world’s rarest and sought-after species of bog wood. Bog Oak originates from tree trunks that have started to fossilize in peat bogs, lakes, river bottoms, and swamps for centuries and even millennia. Deprived of oxygen, the wood undergoes a slow morta-formation process, where water currents help bind earthly minerals and iron with tannins in the wood, giving the wood a natural, beautiful stain, unlike anything else.


Blade: 60mm 1085 carbon steel


Sheath: The knife comes as blade only but a leather slip can be purchased as an additional extra.


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