Hi, my first attempt at a Scandinavian style knife, well first three actually.

Inspired by Mikael down on the Fallkniven forum I thought I would try some stick tangs.

Got to say I’m a big fan of this style of knife now; light and comfortable in use as well as pretty.

Normally I would like to grind my own blades but thought I would try some ready forged blades first.

The blades are: - Puronvarsi with curly birch and bronze.

A Brostrum with striped ebony and bronze

And an Enzo Nordic with walnut, buffalo horn and bronze.

Steve

Only problem with getting it so right first time is that you, now, have no room to improve.

Seriously, fantastic work

If you want to win an argument, it is best to stick to the truth.....or,at least, provable untruths.

WOW!

Those are beautie's all three of them!
I am very fond of Masurbirch and the Puronvarsi is one of the best I've ever seen!

I knew You would post pic's of these knives, but they look way better than I could have possibly imagined!




Regards
Mikael

Thankyou all for your kind words. They are a great encouragement for me to keep trying to do better.

When I look through this forum at some of the remarkable work done by others (like Mikael), I can see that I still have a long way to go!

I will be making my own blade for the next project. Can't wait to get started

I am officially hooked on scandies.

Steve
