    'Viking' dagger



    Length (Dagger 17-3/8 inches
    Overall Length (in Scabbard) 18-5/16 inches

    Historically inspired? Fantasy? Whatever... it's cool! This dagger and scabbard in the style of the late Viking Era Features a hand-carved Maple handle and scabbard, and engraved blade. The blade is 5160 spring steel tempered to approx. HRc58 through the blade and drawn to HRc 45-48 at the shoulders and tang. The blade is fully engraved on either face with a knotwork dragon inspired by the Askeg Stone. The handle is and scabbard are dyed Maple. The handle is carved with a Chain-Knot and the scabbard's carved panels are inspired by engravings from Jutland. The hilt and scabbard furniture is brass. The brass pommel is slightly offset towards the edge (as are some sax pommels.) The scabbards band, locket
    and chape are fabricated from .075 inch thick plate and are very sturdy. With the balance of the scabbarded dagger the ring
    mounted on the throad works well to hang the piece and allow it to be mounted ambidextrously- decoration is uniform on both sides of the scabbard and blade.

    beautiful work as always Tinker!

    now to convince my wife that I HAVE TO HAVE it!
    You have to listen for the song. Every great individual sword has her own song. Once you find that song and hear it clearly, then you can fight with it, for the song is the very essence of the sword. The sword was not forged to decorate walls or be a lifted signal of victory and dominance, but to cut flesh bone and sinew, and kill. She is not an extension of your manhood, nor an expression of your selfhood. She is an instrument of death.
