Raven Knife - Commission

Raven Knife in Handcarved Sheath

The sheath is fully-carved from walnut, stained and sanded to accentuate the raven's head and star design. The hand-sewn leather frog sits in a carved notch, and is held by curving lacing. The raven handle is wenge (a nightmare to carve, but with a feathered effect that echoes the theme) with brass pins.

 
Raven Knife Blade

This photo from before the final handle polish, shows the long 1080 blade. This was carved before the differential clay-temper was applied, including inset decoration and carving recalling a raven's 'beard' near the hilt.
