    Amazing Viking knives!!!

    This is something extra – at least for me.

    I found a man here in Sweden, he is 26 years old and he have make knifes for about 1,5 years now. His name is Edvin.

    Edvin is an archeologist and he make replicas of old Viking and dark ages knifes, you se some pictures of his knifes below.

    It is not so often I get really happy when I se knifes – but in this case, this is something extra, it is very nice looking knifes, they are true replicas of very old knifes, they holds a high quality in craftsmanship – and they are very rare. I do not know any more who makes knifes and sheaths like this –and in this quality. I am amazed!

    I have invited Edvin to come to this forum and tell us more about his knifes, both with the historical aspects, how he make them, and what material he use – and I really hope that he will. I also hope that you guys tell him the same thing.

    This guy makes amazing knifes!!!

    Now those are nice

    The first two have wonderfully matching colours and patterns to them.

    I hope he comes to the forum to have a chat.

    I would certainly be interested in that...particularly seeing the historical basis of the replicas. You might suggest he has a look at www.livinghistory.co.uk too that is a forum for many British re-enactors, there are many folk who like to dress up as Vikings for the weekend.

    I hope that Edvin visit us and tell us more about his knifes. I am thrilled about what he is doing!

    The original knife looks like this!

    Re: Amazing Viking knifes!!!

    Tremendous work! The top one with the Leif Carlsson blade (it is correct no?) is super. That makers mark is less in contrast with this type of knife too.
    The sheaths are utterly cool. Fit for a king.

    I hope to learn more about these.
    Making knives gangnam style..... apparently...

    Re: Amazing Viking knifes!!!

    amazing looking, very impressive and the ancient historical aspect makes them very appealing...it's not a design you would see regularly and i really like the uniqueness of that!
