Viking dragon  knife by BaldurJewelry Viking dragon  knife by BaldurJewelry
On that knife there are a travellers trying to survive the dragon who is trying to wreck the ship and the waves, that tries to drown it.

The steel used is BÍHLER K510, the blade is hardened, so the edge will hold it's sharpness, but please mind that as there are parts cut out, the knife is not made for serious working, you can easily use it for cutting, but not definetly for chopping. This knife is not a practical tool, it's more a piece of art.

Whole knife is 26.5 cm long (10.4 inches) , the blade is 14.5 cm long (5.7 inches).
The bolster and the back of the knife is brass. The stone used at the back of the knife is sea sediment jasper

The stones used for the eyes of the snake are zircons.

I don't remember the name of the handle wood, i got it from a good friend in Sweden.

For cutting out the scenery i used jeweler's saw. It's the main tool jewelers used. I drillied the whole, put the saw blade trough and cut out what was not needed. For shaping the metal i used dremel and different bits. Final patern was made using acid bath. I covered the whole knife with acid resistant wax, then i carved out what i wanted the acid to etch. That done, the knife blade was put into a acid bath. I used 10% HNO3.

That is a challenge I'm not yet ready to accept, I fear. I would silently loose my mind before I'd even finished my first slice of bread.

Don't worry, it's not that hard actually, but the knife really gives strong emotion when holding the hand.

The wood might be maple btw, though I'm not completely sure.

May I ask what you used for engraving the steel?
Reply

BaldurJewelry Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I used HNO3 acid to etch the pattern on the steel, but for shaping the blade i used Dremel and different bits for it
