A Viking style Art Knife


Jonas Liebel

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

I am a 19 year old knifemaker from Germany, and this is my first post in this forum.

I just wanted to show you my recent work because i am very proud of what I have managed to craft with my hands over roughly a month... there have been many ups and downs in making this piece, because many things i did were new to me, the segmented structure of the Handle as well as the knotwork in both wood and leather.

This is the 7th knife i have made so far, and i would really love to read your feedback and critique :)

Jonas

PS: In case you are wondering what the Runes mean, one inscription says "fire", the other says "ancient flame"

Very nice Jonas. I like it a lot. I assume the other blade in your last photo is the 6th?

Well, that is a great way to introduce yourself :)

You are demonstrating what I feel is an uncommon level of fit and finish ability at your age.  I was 20 years older than you before I managed to develop enough patience to finish a project to that level of detail.

Thank you Brian, and... thank you brian ;)

Your words are really flattering me, but I do not think that age is that important regarding the "level" of fit and finish, or craftsmanship in general. In my opinion it mostly comes down to -as you mentioned- patience, and a certain perfectionist trait in a person...

Im sorry for my english by the way, should you find any grammar or spelling mistakes feel free to keep them :)

Very nice, top shelf material!!

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
