Description

This ancient white oak is the sole survivor of all that was living here at the time of Abraham Lincoln’s birth February 12, 1809. This tree was a landmark at the time the earliest settler’s came to this region. The handles of the knife in this display are made from the wood from this tree. Time, weather, insects, and even disease took their toll on the might oak. Efforts were made, as early as the 1920s, to save the oak but all failed. Finally, it was cut back to just a stump and eventually cut down completely in 1986. Before its death in 1976, the Boundary Oak grew to nearly six feet in diameter, 90 feet in height, and had a crown spread of 115 feet.

With the help of Boundary Oak Distillery, Red Hill Cutlery acquired some of this historic wood and with our partnership with WR Case put together this exquisite commemorative set. This set is extremely rare and exclusive to Red Hill Cutlery.
