This knife is a large puukko style hunting knife based on Viking age archaelogical finds from sites around the British Isles and Scandinavia. The knife has been forged to finish from antique wrought iron with a fire-welded 1095 carbon steel core. The blade has a flat V shape grind with a thick (4mm) spine as was common for Anglo-Scandinavian knives from this period. It has a traditional full hidden tang construction, with the tang burnt through the wood and antler for a friction fit, then the end of the tang secured by peining against the brass butt-cap. The segmented handle is made from brass, Scottish Oak Burr and Stag antler.

After being carved into shape, the handle has been hand-sanded and rubbed with several coats of boiled linseed oil to protect the wood and antler.

This knife comes with a traditional Scandinavian style deep sheath made from thick veg-tan cow leather and a hand-carved wooden blade insert. It has been dyed and hand-sewn with artificial sinew.

Both the handle and the leather sheath have been treated and waterproofed with a mixture of linseed oil and beeswax from our own apiaries.


All my knives are forged by hand using traditional bladesmithing methods at Willslock Forge in Staffordshire, England. Each knife has been forged from high carbon steel. I usually use either 1080, 01 or 1095, and sometimes antique historical steels such as crucible steel or shear steel.

I usually forge as close to finish as possible, creating the knife shape and setting the bevels on the anvil. For all of my historical work, my aim is to make my knives with minimal use of power tools, and I take a lot of inspiration from historical knifemaking and smithing techniques.

The handles are all carved by hand and made from locally sourced wood, bone and antler - I avoid using any plastics, resins or synthetic materials.  Wherever I can, I try to repurpose salvaged and upcycled materials in order to create beautiful new knives and tools.  I usually leave a brut de forge, or forge finish, on most of my blades because I like that the hammer marks tell the story of the knife's creation on the anvil, and the forge finish differentiates the knife from all the mass-produced, factory made knives out there.
