little wolf

I had not realized this blade had been setting around the shop for almost 2 years, waiting for me to notice it.

 

The blade is 4 3/8" long, composed of 1095 (some of Aldo's old batch with the vanadium) and wrought iron joined together in a wolfstooth weld. The handle is masur birch, and the overall length is a hair over 9 inches. The sheath is made from leather, bronze, and brass. Not much else to say about it, other than I'm glad it is done. There are lots of pictures because I couldn't decide which were my favorites... :)

Thanks for looking

Your work really speaks, George. More and more I'm loving toothy blades.

I don't mean to hijack, but has anyone ever seen a wolf's tooth sword? I've seen plenty of spears and seaxes, but never a sword.

that is one sweet knife and sheath. I am taken in by it. The tooling on the leather is very good, and the pattern welding is great.

Looks great! I like the hamon-on-Viking thing. Great culture contrast.

 

Very nice work on the scabbard.

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

The use of colors and materials are spot on as always, and that wolf tooth with a bit of auto hamon is awesome! I got some pretty interesting auto hamon from a wolf tooth blade before that followed the wolf tooth but I also had to quench the blade several times, so I dunno if that affected it. Anyway, your sheath work just keeps getting better and better, and I've always especially liked the style of fittings on your sheath, they are unmistakeable as yours!

This piece blows me away. Cross culture, and beautifully executed. I always enjoy seeing your work.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks guys.

I too have seen plenty of wolfstooth seaxes and spears, but I've yet to see it on a sword. Perhaps hiding in the basement of an eastern European museum there is a one-of-a-kind sword...
