Description

Truly the knife of a lord or a king. The blade is constructed from layers of wrought iron and twisted steel with an edge of random pattern damascus. Using the same techniques that are used in the making of legendary Saxon swords. The serpent in the steel convoluted snake pattern in this blade is based on a pattern in a Saxon sword in the vaults in the British museum. The burl walnut handle has silver fittings and gold highlights with garnets on the silver ferrule and butt cap. The leather sheath is adorned with silver gold and garnet fittings.

During the forging the blade is drawn out into a gradual taper, making a blade that is thin near the tip and retains some of its thickness where it meets the handle, this leads to a much better balanced blade.

I offer a guarantee against faulty manufacture for the lifetime of the knives. This does not cover abusive use of the knives or wear and tear. The handle materials on these knives are natural and as such, must be looked after. These knives will not respond well to being left soaking in a sink or (and it pains me to even think of it) put in a dishwasher. I would consider both of these actions as knife abuse. Use them, clean them, dry them and they will remain beautiful for years to come.
