It's not that I would trade my lot
For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

A really nice blade, and equally impressive consistency in the carving work!

May I ask what wood and bone/horn you have used?

There is nothing quite as sad as a one man conga-line...

Thanks, the wood is bloodwood, and it is cow bone.

Fantastic work. The carvings must have been time consuming!

I think it's a beautiful piece of work. I love the combination of organic materials like wood, bone, horn etc., in the construction of sword hilts and knife handles. This method is one of the reasons why migration era swords fascinate me. I particularly like the aesthetic combination you've achieved with this knife, very nice.
