Every time I see you posting new work, I secretly hope it's more kosers :rolleyes:

Fantastic work once again, and an inspiration for me to try making a koser of my own!

Hello,

The 14th cent. knife was made for Bruns B.V. museum in Holland.

Blade made of carbon steel, bog oak handle, vegetable tanned leather sheath.
Designed on the sheath was inspired by finds from London, as the remains of oryginal sheath was only a little.
