    Every hand made knife should have a story to go with it!

    Thanks Rudi!

    I also love a nice little story. This little girl sold a lot of carved wooden spoons to afford her own knife, that's just fantastic!

    I got a picture from her parents when she opened the parcel, it seems she's happy with it!

    Re: Amazing Viking knives!!!

    Here is a Birka style seax that's heading for Alaska, USA!

    Bog oak and horn handle. The horn is a piece of moose horn coronet from Arvidsjaur and the bok oak is from Gotska Sandön, a island in the Baltic Sea. Draw ring, brass rivets. Pattern welded blade in 60SGH/1060 from Kuźnia Berta. Total length 335 mm, blade length 200 mm.

    The sheath is made from cuir bouilli treated full grain vegetable-tanned leather. Two point suspension with cast brass rings and strap mounts. Sheath mounts in brass, step shaped filings with tinned copper plate underlay. All brass rivets.

    I hope you like it!
