Seax sloyd with karelian birch, birch bark and lignum vitae handle

£140.00Price

A very special sloyd knife with a karelian birch handle, sandwiched between stacked birch bark and genuine lignum vitae for an end cap and bolster. There are pins running through the birch bark to keep it secured, which also gives an attractive pattern on the end cap.

 

After the handle was carved and finished, I soaked the handle in dark tung oil and then spent two months applying antiquing wax to bring out the incredible patterning in the birch wood.

 

The blade is from a small run of incredibly special seax sloyds fromAdam Ashworth. There aren't many of these in existence, and I carefully designed this handle to compliment the blade in the best way possible.

 

The leather sheath is handstitched with a wooden insert to protect the blade inside the sheath.
