Ötzi Damascus


Short knife, inspired on the knife of the Bronze Age glacier-mummy Ötzi. His knife was a flint knife with a wooden handle, secured with leather straps.

This interpretation of the Ötzi-knife is made from 70-layered damascus steel, shaped like a flint knife. The handle is stabilized birch-burl with the bark at the end of the handle. By stabilizing, even this bark gets very hard and solid. The leather straps give a sturdy and comfortable grip on the handle. The hand-stitched scabbard can be carried on the belt




Hidden-tang knife based on the famous knife of the glacier-mummy ‘Ötzi’. He carried a knife made of flint, wood and leather straps. Even a sheath made from bark was found. This interpretation is a hidden-tang knife with the appearance of a flint-knife in its damascus steel blade.

The blade is made of an O2-steel core with on both sides 35 layers of O2- and L6 steel.

The handle is made from a piece of birch-burl, with at the end still the thick layer of bark. This wood is stabilized, to enhance the lifespan of the handle. The wood, including the bark, is as hard as a rock. To give a more comfortable and sturdy grip, leather straps are secured around the wood.

The sheath is made from vegetable-tanned cow-leather, 3 mm thick. A leather strap is attached to carry the knife on your belt. Died with dark-brown oil-dye.
