Sloyd Knife + Leather Sheath with Dangler

325.00

A robust knife for carving and craft work complete with a heavy leather sheath and belt dangler. This classic design holds the handle securely in place and includes a wooden insert to keep both the blade and wearer protected while the knife is sheathed. The curved and wasted exterior shape is inspired by Northern European and Siberian scabbards that are intended to be hung loosely from a belt. The shape avoids snagging and ensures the knife is always safely returned to its sheath in the correct orientation: With the sharp edge of the blade ALWAYS facing the outside curve of the sheath.

This knife is assembled without glue - the through-tang is hot inserted and peined against a copper rove. The hand-forged blade tapers in thickness, has a very fine tip, and bevels hollow-ground at a combined 27 degree angle. The hand stitched sheath is molded from 5.5-6oz vegetable tanned leather, edge sealed with beeswax and treated with Plantain and Chickweed magic-salve.

These particular knives have handles carved from some very special Rock-Maple. The tree this material came from grew outside my childhood home with its roots entwined amongst the house’s foundation stones. It was our home tree, wildly old and beautiful - but we lost it around eight years ago to old age and storm damage. Some choice pieces were milled into boards and have been aging and relaxing since. I’ve tapped into one small board for these special knives and probably wont be able to offer much more of it - it was an amazing and emotional experience to work with.

Blade in Carbon steel with Rock Maple handle - Blade length approximately 85mm - handle length approximately 105mm - approximately 230mm overall.
