    Roðinn Hrafn - the Red Raven

    Thank you Mr. Longmire. Thank you very much! Yes, you are correct about the tang. The runes are engraved and filled with a mixture of ashes from the burnt remains of my enemies, and slow curing epoxy.

    Roðinn Hrafn - the Red Raven

    Thank you for the kind words everyone. Yeah, I've taken a liking to sculpting my handles a bit more than I've done previously, and I am planning on going a bit more "all out" on the next one.

    Roðinn Hrafn - the Red Raven

    Let me present Roðinn Hrafn - the Red or "Bloodstained Raven". Blade in folded and twisted railroad steel, in a san-mai lamination with Øberg steel for the core. Handle in stabilized Maple, with Holly for the core, copper, brass and vulcanized fiber. The Holly is engraved with Elder Futhark runes - written in old Norse - and filled with ashes. Any and all critique, is ... as always - most welcome. :) Sincerely, Alveprins.

    Another Hunter...

    Haha, thanks! I feel as if I've finally found a style for myself... Funny how that happens over time. Thanks man! I sculpt using files. Big ones, and then later needle-files. Then various degrees of sand paper. Thanks Doug. thanks.

    Another Hunter...

    Alright, so from the same billet as my last knife - here is another one. Blade in folded and twisted railroad steel, in a san-mai lamination with Øberg-steel for the core. Handle in stabilized Maple, with spacers in brass and vulcanized fiber - with copper for the front. All feedback and critisism is, as always - most welcome. Chiao!

    A new Hunter...

    Alright, so the sheath is finished as well. I suppose I'll upload the last few pics. :) And now I start on a new one. :)

    A new Hunter...

    Thanks! About the bevels... This is the 2nd or so knife I've made in my life, that has not been ground all the way up to the back of the knife.

    A new Hunter...

    Just finished another hunter... San-mai lamination, forge folded and twisted railroad steel for the body, and Øberg-steel for the core. Handle in burl Maple, with spacers in vulcanized fiber, brass and thick piece of copper. Working on the sheath, but RL job is taking up all my time. And yes... my logo is kind of big, still.. nothing has changed there. I am however - planning on perhaps having a new stencil made, without the square frame... Time will show... As usual, all feedback and critique is more than welcome. Sincerely, Alveprins.

    Custom Leather Collar "The Pearl Heart"

    That's a lovely necklace man. :) I made a similar key-ring for my little Lady... Some scrapmascus (same billet as a knife I made for her). She really loved it. :) I find it interesting to sometimes make some little things that are not necessarily sharp... It is a nice change every once in a while.
  11. Alright, so Winter Solstice is coming up, and I needed to make a little something for a certain special little Lady - the same one that received the "Heart Piercer" last year - found HERE. So, - I present to you... a little something - the Pearl Heart - a custom leather collar. Made from 2mm thick vegetable tanned leather - stained (obviously) with red leather stain, as well as antique black leather stain. Details are painted with a fine brush - also in black leather stain. The heart itself is carved from Mother of Pearl using needle files and very fine gritted paper- and sewn in place using Tiger Thread. It closes in the back with a little pin. The Diameter of the collar is 10 cm, and the heart is 2,7 x 2,4 cm. If only my hands were a bit steadier, those lines would've been quite a bit more even... Though I suppose it gives it more of a hand-made look... Anyhow, I know it's not knife or blade related - but I thought it might be of interest anyway. :) Sincerely, Alveprins.

    Another "Moose Hunter" - twin blade

    Thanks man! The owner of this particular one asked me to make it a bit more "girly" than the first one - so I did my very best... Cool. Personally I preferred the red'ish handle of the other Moose Hunter. I'm not too fond of this particular shade of brown actually, but the new owner likes it, so all is well.

    Silver and bog oak seax

    I love the little carving on the end of the handle. :)
  14. Here is another "Moose Hunter" - forged from the same billet as my previous one found HERE. These two knives are for a moose hunting couple who are about to get married. So, these are their wedding-knives. :) As always - any and all comments and criticisms are more than welcome. :) Sincerely, Alveprins.

    "The Moose Hunter" - Multibar Hunter

    Here's the sheath pictures: The sheath is sewn with saddlers' stitching using tiger thread. The material itself is vegetable tanned leather, stained with black leather stain, with impressions painted green to match the green of the handle.
