Small Viking Knife, Damascus Steel Blade and Wood-and-Bone Handle with Torslunda Motif

With its sharpened 256-layer Damascus steel* blade and its gorgeous, eye-catching handle made of wood, bone and brass, this hand-crafted Viking Age knife is a uniquely decorative utility knife.

The handle's middle bone part is adorned on both sides with motifs based upon a bronze stamping die found in Torslunda (Öland, Sweden). 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.

Details:
- Blade material: Damascus steel (256 layers, 4340 and 1070 steel)
- Handle material: wood, animal bone and brass
- Overall length: approx. 16,5 cm

Specs may slightly vary from piece to piece.

Important notice:
- 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.
