Baltic / Slavic all-metal knife

This is a knife I recently forged that was a bit inspired by the Biskupin find from the 7th century. No file work yet, and it´s still waiting for a grind, and it is a bit longer than the original at some 100mm blade length, but I must admit I simply love those double scrolls. It is made from crucible steel I found in the woods and tempered selectively. Might be I will do it a bit less authentic and go for some scales, but we´ll see. As is, the all-metal design would make for a discreet carry. The balance is a bit awkward for me due to the weight distribution towards the rear, but we´ll see.
