Here is an Anglo-Saxon/Scandinavian Belt and knife. The blade is bloom steel folded coarse. Handle is bronze ,blackened oak, and antler crown. This was a very quickly made Christmas present. I think it has a nice home spun feel to it. I took liberties drawing from both Anglo-Saxon and Viking cultures. The sheath and belt are tooled with staffordshire hoard images and the handle is carved with the same gripping dog motif.

That is gorgeous, hat's off to you sir. And I still can't get enough of the natural patterns in the blade.
