Bog Oak Pen Blanks

Not rated yet

Bog oak was originally discovered in the British Isles, with Ireland yielding the greatest amount. Now, although discoveries of this wood are still rare, there are several parts of the world where buried trees are being unearthed.  

The attraction of Bog oak is most notably it's color--it is black or very dark brown.  Scientists say the older the oak (up to 5000 years old), the more consistently black it is likely to become.  The other attraction is the age--these trees were all buried over 2500 years ago.  

ExoticBlanks searches for Bog oak that is as dark as possible and is "square".   The blanks are at least .75 inches square and at least 5" long.  They will undoubtedly make beautiful pens "with a story that can pre-date the Roman Empire".

    Hi, is this bog oak Irish, and does it come with any kind of documentation? Thanks.

    These bog oak blanks do come with a documentation card. The blanks are from Europe, but not IBO

    Do you sell larger pieces of Irish oak bog for larger projects? Was hoping to make a shaving kit and don’t think the .75 inch size will work for the shaving brush. Thanks

    Hi Craig! IBO is getting really hard to come by, but we can get larger pieces of European Bog Oak. Will that help?
