exclusive Viking knife with amazing damascus (pattern-welded) blade and natural leather sheath with stamped silver decoration and meticulous granulation work on bur (burr, burl) ash wood handle.
Perfect size for hanging it from tortoise brooches!
This precious object from our totally new line of exclusive Viking knives is a perfect knife for a connoisseur.

A  blade so sharp that it shaves is forged in authentic pattern-welding technique,  used in Viking times. Many layers of spring and mild steel create wonderful, elaborate patterns of stars and swirls. Shape of blade is historically accurate and  based on original Viking knives. The cutting edge is made of spring steel, to prevent from fast blunting.  

The handle may appear simple, but every knives connoisseur will notice, that is made of very precious and rare wood - burr (in this case an ash tree burr), a peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. This kind of wood is known for its beautiful colours and patterns (for details please read below). The handle is finished with silver  granulation work and a silver ring at the end for easy pulling out.
Please notice the shape of handle - thanks to this shape and edge, knife lays in hand in very comfortable way.

Beautiful sheath based on finds from Birka, Sweden, totally handmade of natural brown cow leather, hand stamped silver plate. Silver ring with a rivet, to suspend the knife on a chain or belt.

Pattern-welding (also called damascus steel) is a technique known from ancient times and it consists on forge-welding layers of mild steel and high carbon steel, then the ready piece of metal is usually twisted and again forged, then again the cutting edge is forge-welded to it. The last steps are forging the final shape of blade,  annealing, hardening, tempering, grinding and etching. The beautiful pattern is revealed during the process of etching and is caused by different composition of steel layers (different kind of steel reacts differently with the acid).

Burl wood -  a tree growth, a deformation of trees grain. Peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty and rarity. It is sought after by furniture makers, artists, knifemakers and wood sculptors.
