Animals of the Wood
An exclusive all-round Nordic hunting and fishing knife in black and white horn. 23 cm. long.
The task was to create a knife for all-round use, one that would be practical while also providing a sense of beauty. I placed slices of bronze and aluminum with some additional file-work between the pieces of horn. The scrimshaw designs feature two animals very different in size; an ant hiding in the leaves and a stag roaring toward the sky.
