A wooden handled bog oak letter opener handcrafted in my UK workshops using traditional woodturning tools and techniques. The paper knife has a high-quality chrome plated trim with an overall length of 165mm and weighs 32 g.
This Norfolk fenland bog oak carbon dated at 5,000 years old. A lot harder and denser than ordinary oak, with colours ranging from dark brown to pitch black. Bogwood (or morta) is wood that falls into peat bogs and is then preserved over thousands of years with no air to decay the wood.
Mounting the wood on the lathe, hand turning to round and shape. Once shaped, it needs sanding, then polishing to show the bogwood to best effect. Unlike my pens, this has a low lustre finish, the normal Ca turns the wood jet black. No box included with this as it’s been made too long.
These wooden letter openers are handcrafted to compliment our fountain and rollerball pens for unique pen sets or corporate, 5th anniversary, Father’s Day, Christmas gift ideas.
