Roðinn Hrafn - the Red Raven

Recommended Posts

Let me present Roðinn Hrafn  - the Red or "Bloodstained Raven".

Blade in folded and twisted railroad steel, in a san-mai lamination with Øberg steel for the core.

Handle in stabilized Maple, with Holly for the core, copper, brass and vulcanized fiber.

The Holly is engraved with Elder Futhark runes - written in old Norse - and filled with ashes.

Any and all critique, is ... as always - most welcome. :)

 

Sincerely, Alveprins.

Now that's a gorgeous knife!  I've never been a fan of mixing copper and brass on the same handle, but you pulled it off beautifully on that one.

Astounding! It looks like a Roman leather cuirass! Your handle sculpting just keeps getting better and better and it was already great.

Thank you for the kind words everyone. :)

Yeah, I've taken a liking to sculpting my handles a bit more than I've done previously, and I am planning on going a bit more "all out" on the next one. ^_^

A superb job on the blade.  I take it that's it a stick  tang framed by the Holly wood.  I'm a little afraid to ask about the ashes.

Thank you very much!

Yes, you are correct about the tang.

The runes are engraved and filled with a mixture of ashes from the burnt remains of my enemies:lol:, and slow curing epoxy. ;)
