Hello. I am selling my entire collection of custom Tinker knives from tinkerswords.com.

All the following descriptions are taken direct from the Tinkerswords.com website for the knives I own.

#1

OAL: 19-3/4 inches
Blade Length: 13-1/4 inches
Blade Width @ Base: 1-1/4 inches
Blade Width 3 inches from point: 1 inch
Blade thickness at base: 3/16 inch
Hilt OAL: 6-1/2 inches
Handle Length: 4-15/16 inches
COG: 1-1/8 inches from base of blade
Blade Node/COP: Unable to determine due to rigidity of blade
Primary Hilt Node: Unable to determine*
*(Impossible to establish with certainty- sword displays Complex Variable Harmonics)
Weight: 1 Lb.
An excellent knife for reenactors or anyone looking for a large outdoor knife with an historical flavor.
Hand-saex in the style of the Late Migration or Early Viking period. The flat-ground blade is made from 5160 spring steel marquenched and tempered to HRc58-60, then the tang and spine of the blade are selectively drawn to HRc45-48 with the cutting edge left at HRc58-60. The tang extends entirely through the hilt and is riveted over the pommel to secure the hilt. The Guard, upper guard and pommel are of mild steel, the handle is a sandwiched wooden handle covered in leather.
The flat-ground blade gives this piece excellent cutting power and makes it deceptively light in the hand, while the leather-covered grip is comfortable and secure. During cutting on a variety of materials no unpleasant shock to the hand was percieved.
Custom period scabbard included with this seax.

Asking $500 OBO

#2 Tinkerswords.com Hallmark Piece!

OAL: 15-1/4 inches
Blade Length: 10 inches
Blade Width @ Base: 1 inches
Blade Width @ Widest: 1-1/8 inches
Blade thickness at base: .210 inch
Hilt OAL: 5-1/4 inches
COG: 1 inch from base of blade on handle
Sax in the style of Saxes dating to the 8th-9th C. The blade is differential-tempered 5160 spring steel. The tang is almost 5/6 inches wide at the base and tapers towards it's tip. The tang is approximately 3-1/2 inches long. The blade is securely epoxied into the handle. The brass bolster is secured with low-temperature silver solder. The blade is hand-engraved in the same intricate Norse knotwork that decorates the scabbard. The Marblewood handle is carved with four strips of a Norse Chain-knot which is not merely decorative but also enhances the grip. The scabbard is of 7-8 ounce vegetable-tanned leather dyed a light brown and finished with Carnuba wax. The scabbard is hand-tooled in a decorative pattern. The scabbard mountings are of brass.
This would make an excellent working or belt knife for recreators of or enthusiasts of the Viking Period.

Asking $700

#3

OAL: 12 inches
Blade Length: 7-3/8 inches
Blade Width @ Base: 7/8 inches
Blade thickness at base: 1/4 inch
Hilt OAL: 4-5/8 inches
COG: centered on bolster
Blade is differentially tempered marquenched 5160 spring steel. The blade features a short section of 'gimping' at the base of the blade. The engraved bolster is brass- the handle is an antler crown. Knife in the style of 17th-18th C. Scottish knives called a Sgian Aichles. This was a type of hide-out knife carried in a sheath stitched under the armpit or upper sleeve of a jacket or vest. Traditionally when entering a place as a guest the Sgian Aichles would be taken from hiding and placed in the boot top or garter as a gesture of good faith. Some believe that the custom of wearing the Sgian Duhb in the stocking garter stems from this tradition. If worn openly this sort of knife was referred to as a Gralloch or hunting knife.
This knife is provided with a single-seam brown leather sheath.
An excellent knife for Scottish recreationists or would make a good early American 'Rifleman's Knife.'

Asking $250

#4

OAL: 11-3/4 inches
Blade Length: 6-3/4 inches
Blade Width @ Base: 7/8 inch
Blade Width @ Widest: 1 inch
Blade thickness at base: 1/4 inch
Hilt OAL: 5 inches
COG: 1/4 inch from base of blade
Knife in the style of saxes dating to the 7-10thC. The flat-ground blade is differential-tempered 5160 spring steel. The blade is engraved on one face with the inscription 'Tinker me fecit' (tinker made me) and on the other with a simple interleave decoration similar to that on several original saxes dating to this period. The robust tang extends 2/3 of the length the handle, which is a section of deer antler capped with a small piece of Mastadon Ivory. The blade is securely epoxied into the handle. The handle's shape is particularly well suited to right-handed users though it may be used left-handed as well.
The leather scabbard is decorated on the outer face with period-appropriate incised designs, then dyed brown and then has had a carnuba wax finish applied. It is composed of a single piece of leather folded over, then riveted along it's upper edge with brass furniture. The furniture is inspired by that on a scabbard of a sax-knife traditionally associated with Charlemagne. There are two brass loops so that the scabbard may be suspended horizontally.

Asking $450

Sgain Aichles is now SOLD

Seax #1 is still available for sale but I am contemplating keeping it for hunting and clearing brush. If I don't get any offers by the end of this week I will most likely keep it.

Thank you for your interest!
