Small Viking Knife with Damascus Steel Blade and Wood-and-Bone Handle with Twin Serpents

This hand-made Viking Age knife features a 256-layer Damascus steel* blade. The wooden handle is a real eye-catcher: The top part is crafted from bone and adorned on each side with a handsome motif of the Midgard-Serpent. The grip terminates towards the blade with a brass collar, and the brass butt cap is equipped with a convenient eyelet (for threading a lanyard or drawing the knife from its sheath).

The beautiful tanned leather sheath with ornate brass fittings is equipped with a suspension ring allowing for comfortable belt carry.

* The terms Damascus steel, damascene or pattern welded designate a compound steel forged out of two or more different types of steel. It is named after its birthplace, the Syrian city of Damascus, a former stronghold of the patterned steel production. As a common practice, a harder high carbon steel and a milder low carbon steel are repeatedly forge welded and folded together. The high carbon steel ensures a higher hardness, a better temperability and longer lasting edge retention, whereas the milder steel confers greater blade flexibility and tensile strength. This procedure, which arose in a time where steel qualities were often low and inconsistent, enables to combine the positive attributes of the various steel grades. Besides, the different shadings generated by the varying carbon content of the alternating layers engender strikingly beautiful patterns, such as the twisted motif called Torsion Damascus pattern or the Rose Damascus pattern. Undoubtedly, these unusual patterns partly explain why inherent magical properties were attributed to the Damascus steel blades of the Middle Ages.

Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.

Important notice:
- This knife is designed as a collector's or decoration piece and not suited for combat reenactment!
- Although fully functional, the knife has a just slightly sharpened edge which may have to be re-ground to improve sharpness if needed.
- As the knife is fully hand-crafted, the ornaments may slightly vary from piece to piece. Please also keep in mind that bone is a natural product and variations in bone colour and grain are quite common. Each Viking knife has thus its own very unique handle and above pictures are for reference only.
