This is a really nice concept especially the “scale - design” on both knife and sheath. Nice job to Faye and......Alex, enjoy!

I'd sure like to know how that "scale" design was made.  It's really good looking.  I can see it's use on a lot of things.

If I had to guess, it looks like file or rasp teeth. Carefully forged so as to not ruin the effect. 

 

Nice work on that, @Faye. Even the blade shape has a certain serpent or dragon shape to it. Thematically as well as practically, it flows very well.

The pictures dont do it justice.  The knife, sheath, and the story that came with it are extremely creative, and very well done.  It's a very humbling experience to realize that someone half your age has twice your skills!

Thank you Alex, I appreciate the huge compliment even if I don't believe it's true. Glad you like the knife.

That looks quite stunning! B)

"Drachenlinge" as in small dragon?

Thank you. Drachenklinge is loose German for dragon blade.

It is forged out of a horse shoe rasp. Pretty much what Will said, though carefully forged might be taking to much credit, it just kinda does it on its own. At least I don't put to much effort into making it look that way.

This is where I confess that everything was a happy accident. This knife was my second attempt and I grabbed a rasp because it was the only thing I had handy. The tail was really a leaf and I choose that shape for the blade because the seax knife was the other consideration for this kith and thought I would be smart and sort of combine the two. Only after I had it ground and ready for heat treat did I see the dragon theme in it. So I ran full throttle with it and it turned out, as my dad would say, not bad for a redheaded kid.IMG_20191202_161823069.jpgThis is to show the tail/leaf I was talking about.

Like I said, the pictures just dont do it justice.  I carried it with me all day in the shop and used it several times.  No complaints at all.
