  18. Hello gentlemen and thank you for all posts! At the first. The blade on the birch bark knife is made of billet which I bought from one dealer of knifemaking supplies here in Czech republic. It consist of Czech equivalents of AISI Gr. 1045 and O2. Unfortunatelly I'm not equipped for forge welding; I have only simple gas kiln, anvil and hammer, so I can forge only simple not welded blades. Every damascus and laminated blades are made of billets bought mostly from knifemakers from Czech rep. DanielQ: thank you very much. In 2008 I was in Sävsjö knifeshow and met Michael West, this year winner of "best of show" category in Solingen. He is wery friendly guy by the way. I can see his clear modern designed knives in my own hands. You can say it has't pure scandinavian shapes, but for me it's modern essence of nordic tradition. I think that is about a feeling. We are living in 21th century and we can set influences from all of the world and creating with absolutelly freedom...uff... I hope that is understandable with my bad english. Back to my work: customer for who is the birch bark knife needs to collection little neck. Here are the pictures:
