Product Description

Incised on a slab of hard slate at Knocknagael, Inverness-shire and widely used throughout Pictland, now modern Scotland, possibly any time from 200BC until the 9th. Century. No one knows why perhaps a salute to a formidable quarry. 

The people of Orkney were known as the boar people or the Orka; the suffix 'ey' means island. 

Carved Tankards and Jacks are available with a stitched detail around the base, alternatively, we have a small stock of pinned base items remaining.

Stitched base items will be dispatched as standard unless you let us know during ordering if you prefer a pinned base.

Historically, leather tankards were lined with either boiled Resin of the birch tree, Brewer’s Pitch, or Beeswax. Our full grain leather drinking vessels are lined with an epoxy resin to echo the historic use of resin whilst having the visual appearance of Brewer’s pitch. The resin we use is fully certified for use in both the food and alcohol industries.

The design can be hand carved on either a Tankard or a Medieval Jack Body.
