Viking Age Folding Knife

My wife and I just finished this knife today. My second folding knife to date.



The handle scales are carved bone. The blade is a multi-bar composite pattern of 1080/15N20. Like all pre-17th century folding knives, this is a simple friction folder. The blade pivots on the rear most pin. There is a notch in the blade on both sides of the pivot point. The second pin fits into these notches to act as a stop in both the open and closed positions. The knife is held open for use when the hand grips the handle trapping the tang end of the blade once it has swung around and into the handle side of the pivot.

This knife is a reproduction of a Viking Age folding knife that is housed in the Cantebury Museum in England. My wife used the drawings from the museum to reproduce the carvings. The knife is 15% larger then the original, to fit a modern hand.
