Early Medieval Belt Knife
A recreation of a typical belt knife from the 11th-13th centuries with similar blade and handle styles found from London, Perth and across the Netherlands and France.

It also works well as a unique knife for those interested in bushcraft, hunting and camping but wishing for something made in a more traditional style.
