Le Mimer


Claude DUBOIS

Recommended Posts

In te he Scandinavian mythology Le Mimer is "the Well of Knowledge" and a knife forged by swedish Mastersmith Michaël Andersson , whom i like the work ! I've read explanations about the process in a David Darom's book , and I decide to do someone for training my forging skill.

Here is te results .

Overall length 350mm , blade of 210x40x6x mm , nickel damascus+ twist damascus guard , nickel damascus pommel, dyed and stabilised Koudous 'bone for the handle. No sheath for this time .

Best regards from France .

For Miles , the french word for awesome is Magnifique , thanks a lot ! for Mr Higson it's not really a Spiderweb effect , it is just a mosaïc effect with square steel and nickel plates , the rotation off lines are obtained by re-squaring operation (forging on the angle of the square)

Is my explanation clear for you ?

Beautiful design and materials, well done man.
