Ancient Bog Oak


Ancient Bog Oak - Hold Some History

Ancient Bog Oak. Older than recorded history, older than written words.

Now you can hold a piece of that history in your hands.

It's difficult to imagine something older than the Pyramids.  Something that was still alive when Wooly Mammoths still roamed.
But the wood used for these pens is exactly that.These pens are made from Ancient Bog Oak that is between 4,000 and 6,000 years old. 

Ancient Bog Oak is from England and Ireland, buried in peat bogs where the oxygen level becomes so low that decomposition
doesn't happen in a normal way. The minerals in the bog react to the wood, causing it to harden and turn a darker color,
ranging in deep chocolate brown to nearly black.  The wood is actually in the earliest stages of fossilization.
Look closely and you can still see the oak's grain pattern.  

Each item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity telling about the Bog Oak history.  Each pen is refillable, using refills available at any
office supply store.  The included ink color is black.  Each pen will come with a presentation sleeve to protect and store the pen. 

The finished pens are stunning.  The color of the wood ranges from dark brown to nearly black.  
I chose to use chrome hardware for the pens for an incredible contrast.
