Wow, that Blade is stunning !!!!
I love the polished edge and hammered finish. A beautiful combination.
Well done, I'm tempted..... :biggthump
Great work there Peter! I really like the combination of belt loop and hinches for hanging it around your neck.. :biggthump
How do you treat the birch bark to be able to use it in a knife? Do you just remove it from the tree and sand down the white layer?
Plz help me out, what is laburnum in swedish? :confused:

Thanks Rich and JKD!
Remove, let dry, peel of layers with knife. Thats it.
Å på ren svenska kallas träet Gullregn.

Great stuff Peter. You continuously produce knives to the highest standard. What I like about your designs is the uncluttered simplicity on first sight, then the subtle touches that appear after closer inispection. I'm learning from your choice of (to me) unusual woods that have subtle figuring. I've never seen Laburnum before, yet I think I may have some in my garden! The white spacers set off the birch bark beautifully and the sheath is very well judged. I envy you your eye for good lines. :biggthump
...and that is a marvellous blade!

That knife is outstanding. So far beyond my current abilities. Outstanding.
Rich, you got a great deal, there.

Tell me about it !!!!
I've never owned a Scandi before and have never really liked the shape to be honest.
But this one, I really, really like.
I love the blade. The contrast of the hammered / forged finish and the polished edge is awesome.

Thank you all! :)
Rich, you got mail...

I have sent the Paypal Payment.
Thanks for the wonderful Scandi and I promise I'll care for it and treasure it amongst my prize posessions.
One question though..... What do you recommend to maintain the wonderful polish on the edge and belly of the blade ?
Many thanks, and keep up the great work.

Knife was on my front door mat when I got home. What a lovely suprise. :D
I opened the package and WOW :yikes:
Your workmanship is awesome. The presentation is fantastic too. I loved the little green card attached to the sheaf with something finished to look like leaves. The card had your simple 'PB' logo on the front and detailed the components used and the blade details in handwritten Italic font (nice fountain pen work!).
The knife is beautiful and the sheath looks amazing with great thought. The stitching is fantastic and I love the simple 'flaps' to hold the leather thong for neck carry. The sheath smells wonderful too (god I love that smell !!).
The knife looks and is smaller than I was expecting and it's soooo light in the hand. The handle is actually the perfect size for my hands and the contours and profiling on the handle fit my hand perfectly.
The gorgeous Blade is rather blunt though, but I dare not sharpen it as the edge and grind has been polished to a bright shiny finish. Maybe I'll just try stropping it sharp :D as I dare not put it on my Sharpmaker or DC4.
It's an awesome knife which I shall treasure. The design is fantastic and I think it works great around the neck due to it's light weight. The long slim sheath design also makes the knife sit nice and flat in the centre of my chest and it doesn't get in the way at all.
Thanks Peter. You are a true craftsman of superb talents. Now I look forward to you getting another one of those excellent Hollow Ground blades ready for my next PB Knife :D :D
