Full Tang Saxon
This knife was designed after the belt knives worn by the Saxon warriors,
forged out of file steel, with curly hard wood, and hand carved horn fittings.

Celto-Norse Working Knife
This knife features file steel blade, bone mountings and a handformed saddle leather
sheath. The knife measures 12 in (31cm) with a 7 in (17cm) blade. The carving on the
sheath is a combination of the Norse ring-chain and Celtic knot-work.

The 3 in. blade is handforged of file steel and features handcut engraving on one side.
The brass bolster has decorative punch work on the face, and is engraved around the sides.
The handle and scabbard are crafted out of Lacewood and burned with the same design as on the
blade and bolster. The handle is offset so that when you tuck it in your sash it lies flush.
The measurements are:
Knife                 8 in. (21 cm.)
Knife in Sheath   9 in.    (22 cm.)
