Hand Forged Blacksmith Knife | Viking knife, Celtic Knife, Krumkniv, Handmade knife, Hand forged knife, Blacksmith made knife


This listing is for the clip point knife shown in the photo! The blade is 2.75" long, and the twisted handle is 4.5".

Knives like this go by many names: blacksmith knife, Viking knife, Celtic knife, Krumkniv and others. Since there's no wood used in its construction, a simple coat of oil makes it weatherproof, shockproof and tolerant of hard use.

I hand forge each blacksmith knife myself from a segment of 5/8" diameter coil spring, normalize the steel for the best grain structure possible, harden with a canola oil quench, then torch temper for excellent toughness. This particular knife has a canola oil finish for a bit of rust protection. Food safe! I've left the blackened forge finish on the spine and bevel of the knife, both for looks and for a small amount of extra anti-rust character.

I ship each knife in a plastic edge protector, but it's *not* a wearable sheath. Hit up one of the leatherworking vendors here on Etsy for something for your belt!

Coil spring makes for a good, durable knife. It's not stainless, but it will hold a decent edge for most shop or camp-utility purposes. Keep it oiled, sharpen it if abuse dulls it, and it will serve you for a lifetime.
