Commission by a friend for her husband. Traditional scandinavian design using lacewood and birch, with antler accents. The stand’s base is solid lacewood with 5 coats of tung oil that was buffed with steel wool between coats. Caribou shed was routerd in and epoxied to stay in place, same with the small button of moose antler the blade rests on. I didn’t make the blade, it was done by a Danish smith.

nice work alaskadiver, I really think the stand it adds to the knife. It is hard to see in the picture but what kind of blade is that?

amazing! I may be interested in having a knife commissioned for a family member. Is there anyway you could email me some information?

The blade is from a Nordic smith Mickael Eklund (spelling might be wrong). Super sharp stainless scandi grind blade. I lack the facilities to forge my own currently.

This is a beautiful piece and a real eye catcher. It has nice details and craftsmanship.
