The Bog Oak have been soaked in many years of history. Over centuries and a millennium, sinking Oak trunks lay on the bottom of a surface of water. They lie there for many years without any exposure to oxygen, completely submerged. In result of the chemical processes, the sap from the wood and minerals from the water dye the wood a black color. Bog Oak is an extremely rare and unique material which color speaks for itself (and varies from green black to brown to black black).
The pen is a classic twist style pen and uses any cross style ballpoint replacements, so it will last a lifetime.
