Emerson St. Patrick's Irish Knives
We bring to you our annual offering of custom, limited edition, handcrafted Lucky Irish Emerson St. Patrick's Day Knives collection. Available while supplies last.
The Festival of St. Patrick's Day on March 17, is celebrated the world over by both Irish and non Irish alike. It has always been said that everyone is Irish on St. Paddy's Day. In fact due to historical upheavals and disasters over the centuries in Ireland and the resulting emigrations, there are more Irish scattered about the world than in Ireland itself. I'm sure that it is another reason why St. Patrick's Day is celebrated throughout the world in so many lands. This year we've got some real goodies that any leprechaun would surely love to add to his pot of treasure.
We've got “Lucky 7's“ and “Irish 8’s” in several variations in very special bog oak renditions. With blades engraved with our special vines and shamrock artwork. My grandmother came from County Cork in the 1900's. I know she would've loved our “Irish Knives“. I hope you like them as well.
The Lucky Irish Bog Oak 7's and “Irish 8’s”
These could be the Ultimate St. Patrick's Day knives, the Lucky 7 and Irish 8’s. These CQC-7s and CQC-8s feature unique handles of authentic Irish Bog Oak that is over 6,000 years old. Imported from Ireland, these beautiful pieces of Irish history are handmade and hand finished by Ernest Emerson himself. The blades are hand painted in Irish Green or Black and then engraved with our vines and shamrocks pattern to complete the ultimate of St. Patrick's Day Lucky Emerson CQC-7 or CQC-8 knife. And that’s not all. This year I made some very special CQC-8’s all engraved and all of them featuring unique Irish Bog wood oak handles. They are truly some of the most unique CQC-7's and CQC-8’s I’ve ever made.
Irish bog oak is from oak forests six to seven thousand years ago in Ireland where bog lands are now found today. Oak trees that were located near these bogs fell into the bogs and were gradually buried in 12 to 20 feet of Irish peat where, without oxygen, in the presence of tannins, and the acidic environment of the bog, the wood never decayed and slowly transformed into the beautiful earth colors that are seen on this rare and unique wood. It is a piece of Irish history and not only does it look beautiful, it is beautiful with a depth of color like the peat earth that was its silent home for so many centuries.
Each knife comes with a certificate of authenticity certifying the origin and the region where your Irish Bog Oak was actually unearthed.
