Viking Belt Kinfe

 

This knife is designed to hang from one's belt and be used as an overall utilitarian blade.  I incorporate a simple design of a full tang through the wood handle and bradded over at the pommel by use of a brass disk.

The blade thickness of the belt knives will range from 6-8 inch overall with a 3-5 inch blade length.Each blade is hand forged by myself, at White Hart Forge using high carbon leaf spring steel (5160 or 1095) and heat treated to a Rockwell Hardness of 62 to 55. Each belt knife comes with a leather sheath held together by hammered brass plates riveted in the style of the Old Norse.The belt loop on the sheath will allow the wearer to move without the sheath getting under you when sitting or caught up.

PLEASE NOTE: Because these are all hand made one at a time, there will be slight variations in the handle and the blade. The photos used here are of previous works and are intended for descriptive purposes. Your blade and sheath will be similar to these and will be built after the sale.
