View Full Version : Damasc knife
This is a new knife i made recently:
The handle is made of alder, ebony and camel bone.
Blade is damasc by Trygve Larsen
Sheath is made of raw hind leather and pauting, colored black and brown....
Any comment is welcome, good or bad :D
HAVE GOTTEN PMS IF ITS FOR SALE, ITS NOT! PM ME IF YOU WANT A SIMILAR KNIFE.......
The knife is fine, but you have to do something with the picture size it takes forever to load, and it is four times bigger than my screen .
Not sure the purple thing does it any favours though and I can only see about a third of it at once. How about a new (smaller) picture on a plain background then we can get a proper look.

JohanB, hope you don't mind me posting you picture scaled down to one that can be seen on a smaller screen.
And yes I know it will make it still longer to download this page but it will enable more people to appreciate the knife.
thanks guys, and especially you clcuckow.... :)
It looks good, but I get the impression the picture doesnt do it justice....I bet it is even better in real life.
Not sure about that purple thing that the knife is resting on though?.....what ever it is :)

Johan, If you want you can edit your original post to use my copy of your pic. Saves you scaling and uploading it yourself.
Ah that's better, very tasty, just the kind of knife I really like. The black and white works really well. Nice one. :biggthump
That is one lovely purple massager!
Very nice knife Johan. In English we would say you have an understanding for how the wood and steel flows and combines to become one thing together. I think there is a word in Norwegian that means this, but I cannot remember it......
Danzo "linjeføring" i think is what you are looking for here ;)
And yes that is very important in a knife IMHO :)
Thanks guys for the nice comments!
Having now seen several more of 'young' Johans knives I think he is in truth...... Gammel Johan B Trondbedstefar!
The grandfather of Trond who taught him all he knows!
