Alatalo - Frostbite & Ritual


Recommended Posts

Here are two new custom scandis I've just finished, the Frostbite and the Ritual.

These are the final projects for this summer before studies start and knifemaking has to slow down a little (not stop though ;) )

 

Both of the knives (along with others) are for sale, contact me through my website for more information.

 

Anyway, on to the good stuff;

 

Frostbite

 

Blade: Mattias Styrefors damascus steel blade with random pattern heat colored blue and gold. Length approx. 11,5cm.

 

Handle: Mammoth tusk bolster and rear ornament, stabilized mammoth tooth center, blue stabilized birch and engraved mammoth tusk spacers.

 

Sheath: Hand patterned rawhide leather colored black with damascus steel star pattern beltloop button.

 

Total knife length approx. 27cm.

The first one is exquisite! A superb work. Congratulations!

I like it much more than the second, but only because of the

colors.

My jaw has most certainly been been dropped. Seriously impressive, on all accounts. Materials, construction, sheath, all of it! I'm sad you have to get back to studies B)

I had about the same reaction as most when I opened this.. These are the kind of knives that boggle my mind.

I am particularly fond of the second one's handle.

 

The sheaths are just outstanding.

 

Going to save these photos to study further.
