Black oak wood matured and refined over thousands of years
Bog oak wood is obtained from oak trucks that have been refined by nature itself over time – it is therefore not a separate type of wood but rather very old and valuable oak wood. The oak trunks have survived for thousands of years in wild bogs before they were discovered and are now worked to form our ergonomic knife handles after a slow and careful drying process.
While the oak trunks lie hidden deep in the bog for thousands of years, the wood becomes coloured and hardened. This reaction provides the characteristic properties of the wood which set it apart and make it so valuable. The bog oak gets its brownish to black colour through this storage in the bog and has this to thank for its particularly refined appearance. This high-quality handle design can be seen on our MEATLOVER chef’s knife and BREADLOVER bread knife.
