A Unique opportunity to acquire a strictly limited edition of Forest and Forge chef’s Knife with a Bog Oak handle.

When we started off on our journey with Forest and Forge knives, we only used a selection of native English woodland handles from a small area of North Yorkshire, mainly from wind-damaged boughs, or from the process of management. We have now obtained a log of Bog Oak from an area of Lincolnshires (The Isle of Axholme) and will start by making a strictly limited edition of 25 individually numbered and certificated Chef’s Knives.

Bog Oak is the name given to oak trees that have slid under the peat and mud at some point in history (without carbon dating, it is impossible to know how old each tree is, but the chances are that it will be somewhere between 500 and 1000 years old.) Because of the complete lack of oxygen in the peat, the oak remains completely preserved, the only change it undergoes being a subtle darkening of the colour and softening of texture that is now highly prized by elite furniture makers.

  • Environmentally friendly
