The bog oak emerges from oaks which have died and been submerged in waters such as swamps or bogs. This creates an exlusion of oxygen so that the tree is being preserved and doesn't rot. Because of this conservation process some of these trees are 5000 years old. Over that period of time the wood turns to a dark brown or even a deep black.
What is stabilized wood?
The handle woods by market leader Raffir are subject to a very special stabilization process. First of all the air is sucked out of the wooden pores under vacuum. Subsequently, a purpose-built special plastic is pressed through the material. After curing, stabilized "Raffir-Woods" are extremely resistant to moisture, blood, sweat, (food) juices and thus very hygienic. They require no special care, don’t need to be oiled or impregnated and can be polished to a high gloss without any aids!
Stabilized handle materials by Raffir are easy to be processed and are in their hardness comparable to a hardwood. Drilling, sawing and grinding are easily possible. Small gaps or grain openings cannot be fully ruled out in any type of wood. But these can easily be repaired with super-glue and epoxy adhesives. The processing of stabilized wood is harmless to health, however, as with any processing of wood wearing a dust mask is highly recommended!
