Fixed with walrus ivory

Mat Maresch

Recommended Posts

Here´s another one I made last year -

and I wish I had never given it away...


Damascus, ancient walrus ivory and leather, that´s all it needs :)

And some days time, that´s clear.































Hope you like it!

That's really nice! Love the sheath fittings.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Beautiful, the ivory looks amazing and goes with the pattern really good. It looks comfortable to hold.

I certainly see why you are heartbroken to let this one go. Love the backdrop as well. Wherever did you find maps of Middle Earth?

beautiful. classy materials, nice details and clean lines. the filework on the bolster and spacer give a simple knife a very regal look. i hadn't even noticed the background until someone pointed it out, but it feels very 'dwarvish' to me, something Thorin would carry on his belt...

Thank you all very much - I´m glad you like it as much as I do :)


The maps were supplied with a german softcover edition of JRRT´s LotR.

Somehow they seemed to make the right background for this knife.

Though I have to admit they are a bit too bright for photography, wish I had taken something a bit darker for this knife.

But, hey - we all see it´s a knife, so it isn´t too bad I guess.


Again - thank you all, much appreciated!
