Yggdrasil laufsblað - Leaf of Yggdrasil

Recommended Posts

I present to you - the latest Deer-Hunter - Yggdrasil laufsblað - Leaf of Yggdrasil!

Blade in 3 bars folded and twisted steel. 100 layers of folded railroad steel for the body, and 60 layers of ferrier's rasps and 15n20.

Handle in Chestnut with core of Holly, w. spacers in vulcanized fiber. Front part of handle is Mammoth Ivory, with spacers of vulcanized fiber and brass.

The Holly is engraved with Elder Futhark runes in Old Norse. The poem is taken from Grímnismál  verse. 33 - Codex Regius and pertains to four deer that eat from the leaves of Yggdrasil - the world tree.

This knife will be used - shock - for hunting deer. :P

Sincerly, Alveprins.

Haha, thank you Mr. Longmire! :D

Actually... I've recently gotten myself that Lindsay Airgraver I've been wanting for the past few years. Been watching a whole lot of videos on YouTube on engraving, gold inlay and gem setting - so I expect to kick it up a notch or two over the next 12 months. ;)

Thanks! ^_^

I don't "make" it - as in smelting it. But I do combined different steels and forge fold them.

My next project involves 2-300 years old bog iron from tools which was used in the silver mines, combined with and old saw blade and 15n20 steel. It will be interesting. ;)

This is my favourite of yours so far, the material combinations in that handle are gorgeous, and the damascus is great too.

I can't wait to see what you do with an airgraver, they are amazing tools and i dearly wish to be able to afford one myself one day.

Thanks man!

Yeah, I'm pretty excited about the graver myself... I think I will start with my maker's mark. I always wanted to have it in 24k gold... I suppose I'll have to do some test-runs with copper wire first though... :lol:
