Available is a stunning ancient English Yew burr knife set with a blade handmade in Sweden by professional knifemaker Maihkel Eklund crafted from Rust-resistant AEB- L steel. Buffalo horn and spalted beech compliment the walnut. Eklund blades come with a secondary or micro bevel that make them easy to sharpen quickly and creates a more stable edge. Alternatively the bevel can be honed out. 

 

In addition a piece of mammoth tusk bark from the Pleistocene period has been inserted into the handle of the knife. 

 

The knife comes with a custom fitted handstitched leather sheath. The leather is a thick full grain shoulder in a warm walnut brown  colour and has been stiched using a saddle stitch in a yellow waxed thread. The knife comes with a matching belt dangler with solid brass snap clip that has been cast in England .

 

To help keep your handle in good condition there is  a small tin of Ash & Axe organic Cambridge beeswax and Norfolk Linseed oil wax.

 

The leather has all been stamped by hand with the Ash & Axe and Norfolk, England brands using handcrafted brass stamps made in England..

 

This knife is only available to purchase if you are 18+. Proof of age ID which also matches the delivery address must be provided on purchase before the item can be dispatched. For more information on knife laws in the UK, please visit this page.
