  1. Hey!

    I have something new, pictures are from top oldest to youngest.

    Most knives are form 14-15th century as well as sheats.

    Last thing is 18th century alarm clock.

  3. I can't get over the aesthetic you cultivate with your work, very ancient and functional at the same time, I wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of that! How is the decoration on the blade done?

     

    Excuse my late answer (I guess that everything about this knife take looong time). Decorations are soldered in fire before hardening.

  5. Hey!

    I made this one for competition at Knifest (some wood, rope, ball, can, etc.. chopping), I use that oportunity to try different type of bauernwehr/hunting knife than last time.

    If this one survive all competition I want to made small knife, fork and sheath.

    Blade I forged from old wagon leaf spring, at handle I use walnut wood. Fittings and rivets are from brass sheet.

  6. So, because I lost one needle decide to make stitchless sheath :)

    This is my first attempt so I use scrap leather (that unfortunatelly is not good for shaping so tip and mouth are not perfect)

    I use there one side wood insert to fortify whole sheath.

    If you decide that this one is ugly enought for you I´ll look for better piece of leather and made new one....

  7. Not so much, I have few years before original Wirkkala in hand and that handle shape catch me.

    In this opportunity I decide to try different things than do usually, and this idea is offered itself.

  8. Hey!

    I made this one from scraps: Blade from scrap piece of pattern welded steel that I take from my friend shop.

    Unknown wood from trash pile behind gardens. Fittings are soldered sheath that i forge from 17th century wrought bars that my friend save when old prison was tear down.

    I try to made this knife thin and light as possible to easy everyday carrying....

  9. Little knife for small ranger with white tree seedling on blade and two Middleearth star constellation on bog oak handle.

    Slipjoint folder, blade I forge from spring steel tree I carve and cover by wax before patinating (unfortunatelly wax is not precious like alcohol pen).

    Silver pins I made from silver wire.

  10. ¨Hey! Excuse my late answer, I was for some days out of internet range.

     

    .

    Do you put a liner against the antler?

    - Yes I rather use it.

     

     

    Are you using it on the push or on the pull?

    -This one is only for pull, but work surprisingly fast- one groove at this knife take about 5 minutes scraping but then about half hour polishing with sandpaper on wood stick and needle files...
