Mountain King Forge
Iron Age inspired knife with sheath
Forged from spring steel and shown here with it’s companion sheath.
The sheath is in the traditional Finnish “Seam up the front” style, and is hand cut, bevelled, grooved, punched, stitched, hammered and wet moulded, then dyed, waxed and buffed. The sheath mimics and accentuates design elements of the blade and is an interference fit.
