Viking Folding Knife/Razor -Jorvik
A folding knife from 9th-10thc Jorvik, with an iron case and integral butt spike. Potentially used for personal grooming, it works well as a small craft knife also, with suggestions of leather working, basket making and textile weaving/repair coming from respective craftspeople.
Although small, this has been fiendishly awkward to make as the entire knife- case and all- has been hand forged out of laminated iron. I've lost count of how many layers there are.... but it's a lot
Blade: Laminated iron with a carbon steel cutting edge.
Case: Laminated iron
Blade Length: 42mm
Case Length: 85mm
This knife is supplied with its own presentation tin.
