Bog Oak Pens

Introducing The new Irish Collection of Bog Oak Pens. Here we have combined Bog Oak, one of the most valuable commodities in the work shop with three different finishes to suit every taste. A Sterling Silver Plated finish, a Chrome Plated finish and a 10 ct Gold Plated finish. This superior collection of Bog Oak Pens have a classic screw top lid which conveniently screws onto the bottom of the pen when in use giving the writer the feeling of a firm balance as well as it looking good. This unique pen is offered as a Roller ball Pen and a Fountain Pen and can be purchased on its own or as a set. The Fountain Pen features a top quality two tone nib with Iridium point while the Roller ball includes a ceramic tipped cartridge for effortless writing. The Bog Land of Ireland and Fermanagh (where this Bog Oak originates) are a vast treasure trove for a unique ancient material which only enhances the precious metals it is combined it with. What a perfect gift to give to others or even to yourself. Each pen and pen set comes in its own handsome, hinged, wooden presentation case, (Although all presentation cases are of the highest quality, cases may vary slightly in colour and shape due the unique nature of wood)

 

App

 
Bog Oak is a rare timber, which is excavated from deep underground, usually as a by-product of turf cutting, or land drainage. The wood varies in age, usually between 2,000 and 6,000 years old, (the Queens University in Belfast have recorded 4000-bog oak and other ancient oak timbers that spans 7000 yrs). The wood has been preserved due to the unique conditions of the turf bogs, which waterlog the wood and keep it free from sunlight and oxygen, which would cause it to decay. The chemistry of the bog also reacts with the wood and transforms its colour. When the wood is brought to the surface it petrifies becoming a deep black and almost steel hard. The Bog lands of Ireland and County Fermanagh, (where this Bog Oak originates) are a vast treasure trove for a unique material more ancient than the Pyramids of Egypt that has been naturally preserved for thousands of years. One of the most valuable and scarce commodities that exist in the workshop is Bog oak. This timber is inextricably linked with Irish history and is one of the more majestic woods used in turning.
