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.
