Damascus Iscian knife with a dangler neck sheath

I made this knife after a ritual knife pattern I found attractive. It follows the lines of an Athamen / iscian knife. The blade is forged from Zwissler damascus out of 15N20 and 1.2842. The handle is made from bog oak that lay submerged under the mud of an old coalmine in the Muttental, resulting in a very rare bloodred colour. Mounted with copper and brass, the blade is 90 mm long and 2,5 mm thick, resulting in a very slicey feel. The bevel is convex, the tempering selective, as usual. I like it and use it as an EDC and as a knife that means something...;-).


  1. Nice work Markus, lovely slender shape to this knife.

  2. Thanks, folks, as usual, I have to keep working on it, but as is, I like the knife myself.


Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
