Around 5000BC a rise in sea level caused the Fens to flood. The old growth trees died where they stood, eventually falling into the silt that now covered the forest floor. Some were preserved in the anaerobic conditions only to be disturbed thousands of years later by farmers now cultivating this rich land. Some of theses Sub-fossilised tress are found with trunks in excess of 100ft.
The Bog oak has a weight and density to rival the most highly valued tropical hardwoods, it is also the only native tree to provide black wood. Although this one is Dark Brown coloured.
The cases do have marks on them as they are once fired. You may be able to polish the brass if you so wanted but currently they look used.
All pens are handmade by me. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
