Talamona Bog Oak Pipe (A20)
Several Artisan pipe makers are using Morta, which is an excellent material for pipe making. Morta or Bog Oak, is partially petrified oak that comes from trees that have fallen into peat bogs. Being buried in the peat bog preserves the wood from decay due to the bogs acidity and anaerobic conditions. Over the course of time, tannins are leached out, leaving the wood in the early stages of fossilization. If the process continues, the wood would eventually turn into lignite and coal, a process that takes millions of years. It is an ideal material because of a high percentage of minerals, reaching up to 12%, which makes Bog Oak especially resistant to burning, and thousands of years long washing erases all traces of tannin, resin and similar ingredients, giving a neutral taste during tobacco smoking. The finalised piece is beautiful, the structure of the wood gives a unique look. When smoked, a neutral taste is given to the smoke. All this makes bog-wood invaluable in pipe smoking and results in a high demand from pipe smokers.
