Native style, six hole flute in the key of F Sharp minor. Hand crafted from a solid blank of beautiful and highly figured English brown oak, capped with ancient bog oak, and highlighted with rings of yellow heart. It is finished with many coats of a hand rubbed, natural oil and wax finish. The stylized claw shaped block is crafted of ancient bog oak, with a yellowheart core, and sits atop an inlaid bog oak nest. It also features my signature hand burned morning star with inlaid abalone center. The block is secured with laces of tan and black deer hide. The bog oak used in this flute is ancient bog oak trees from the bogs of England "Many thousands of years ago the East Anglia fenland basin was very densely forested by gigantic oak trees. Approximately 7000 years ago a rise in sea level relative to land level caused the rivers to back up and flood the fens, consequently the trees died standing and then fell into the silt of the forest floor and many have been preserved under anaerobic conditions until now." Adamson & Low, Cabinet Makers
