Available is a stunning English Yew carving knife with a blade forged by Nic Westermann


Blade: The blade is a 40mm straight blade made by Nic Westermann


Handle: The handle is crafted from a stunning piece of English yew with 5000 year old bog oak and yew burr trim.


The yew tree is a native tree which the Druids held sacred in pre-Christian times. They no doubt observed the tree’s qualities of longevity and regeneration. Drooping branches of old yew trees can root and form new trunks where they touch the ground. Thus the yew came to symbolise death and resurrection in Celtic culture.


Leather: The knife is being sold as knife only but a leather slip on sheath is an available option.


To help keep your handle in good condition the knife includes a tin of Ash & Axe organic Cambridge beeswax and tung oil or linseed oil wax.


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.
