Sköll - a vikin age ringerike style knife

Recommended Posts

Hello! I would like to offer my latest knife. The story if its creation can be followed here:

It is a knife with a blade made of four bars - wrought iron, patternwelded rod of 9 layers, wrought iron again and high carbon steel on edge.The handle is ashen, hand-carved in ringerike style, the motif taken and adjusted from an 11th century brooch. At the end of the handle is a wrought iron butt cap and a loop, housing a brass ring decorated with triangles made of punched small 1mm circles. Also, there is a leather strap to make the pulling of the knife easier.

The sheath features an antler plate decorated in the same style, the motif coming from a weather vane found on Gotland. There is a decorated brass ring too, ready for a strap attaching it to the belt. The rest of the sheath is sewn using a hand woven flax string, and there are three wrought iron clamps to add a bit of a bling :) .

The OAL of the knife is 22cms, blade length is 10,6cm.

I am asking 500USD/443E for this one
