A classic wilderness knife designed by English custom knife maker Roger Harrington.

This knife has been designed by an experienced outdoorsman, and it shows. The Woodsman is a very tough knife and is well-suited to your typical Bushcraft tasks, including splitting wood, or “batoning”. A top-notch choice for all-round field use. This model comes with a fire steel and a sheath with a fire steel loop.

The bog oak handle adds a real touch of history to the knife. It is amazing to think that the oak of the handle was growing around the same time that Stonehenge was built!

What is Bog Oak?
Bog Oak is not a species of tree, rather it is a term given to the oak found in the peat bogs of Great Britain and Ireland. Low oxygen conditions in peat bogs help preserve the wood from normal decay, and the acidic conditions combine with the natural tannins in the wood to give Bog Oak its distinctive and pleasing colour. It is essentially in the early stages of fossilisation, and many samples of Bog Oak are hundreds if not thousands of years old. A very sought-after material indeed.
