    Rannoch Moor is littered with bog oak. Some comes to the surface eventually. Used to collect it for the fire when camping....it was very dense and hard to saw. Wonder if it's similar?

    I will Chris. With me being rather tight fisted the price will have to be right though

    Chris collects his from Norfolk - annual pilgrimage when coming up from darkest Devon for the UK pipe show.

    I'm sure it is similar, Crawford, but how close to being the "same" would depend on how long it had been under water and the degree to which it is petrified - 10,000 years is a long time and I suspect that the stuff Chris A gets is carefully sourced and a bit "special".

    I've seen golden morta as well, Joe. I think that has less age than the darker stuff.
