This 9 inch carving knife is made from a 26 layer Patternweld that has been very tightly twisted. This is my own variation of the twisted patterns that the Saxon Swordsmiths used in their legendary blades.
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.
The handle is walnut cow horn and buffalo horn.
Materials : 15 N 20 Carbon Steel and 1080 Carbon Steel, Walnut and cow horn, Buffalo Horn.
Big blade length is 9 inches long, 1 ¾ inch wide and 2.5 mm thick at the handle.
The knife weighs 130 grams.

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.
I make these knives in small batches. Please enquire .
