Unique piece, handmade in Normandy (France).
Handcrafted knife whose Norman birch handle was pyrographed by hand lifted by me with a lynx head and whose blade, in « sandwich » steel (90MCV8 steel heart and pure iron exteriors) was forged by my partner, Benjamin ALBRYCHT from La Forge d’Asgeir.
It is a knife which will be very useful to you, as well in walk for your wild pickings, in picnic, at table, in kitchen … On the blank, the blade is rough from forge. This one measures 10 cm long by 2.3 cm wide and 3 mm thick. The handle measures approximately 11 cm, for a total length of approximately 21 cm.
Made with « four hands » for many hours, in Normandy in our workshop.
All the materials used are as eco-friendlies as possible and the wood is treated naturally with a fungicide and a natural anti-pest (traditional mixture in Scandinavia of northern pine sap and plant distillates).
Care instructions: after washing, wipe your knife directly with a clean cloth. Do not let it soak in water, this steel is a carbon steel which oxidizes to humidity and must therefore be treated with care by oiling the blade when you want to store it for a long time in a drawer for example. To nourish the handle, you can use a natural oil such as linseed oil to apply with a soft cloth and to sharpen the blade you can use a natural water stone (you can buy these items if necessary on Benjamin’s ETSY website: https://www.etsy.com/fr/shop/AsgeirCraft).
