Products description

History's universal glue!

Birch pitch is being made by destilling the bark of birch trees ("pyrolysis") and has probably been known as early as the Paleolithic age. Heating the dry, compact mass turns it into a viscous, sticky compound. It is water resistant and has therefore been used to waterproof for example boat hulls, wooden roofs or walls, nautic ropes, wooden buckets etc.
But most of all, birch pitch has been used as a universal glue from the stone ages to the middle ages. In its viscous state it is surprisingly sticky, ideal for attching weapons and tools to their wooden handles, or feathers and arrowheads to wooden arrow shafts.

Birch pitch by HistoFakt is being produced locally in a traditional manner from European birch bark. The product's consistency may vary slightly, but it is ready for use and does not have to be reduced any further.

Sold in lumpy of 100g.
