Available is a stunning 45mm carving knife made from spalted beech


Blade: Warncliff whittling blade. A knife blade made for whittling, 45 mm long. 9-10 mm wide. The blade is made from carbon steel, 26C3. The blade has been hand forged in Sweden by legendary bladesmith Kay Embretsen.


Handle: The handle is crafted from a piece of spalted beech from the Cambridgeshire countryside with additional 5000 year old bog oak from the  Lincolnshire fens  


The bog oak has been dug up from the Lincolnshire fens and carefully air dried then kiln dried before being quarter sawn to give a beautifully contrasting pattern.


Radio carbon dating has shown these ancient giant oaks to be around 3300BC.


In the rear of the handle has been inserted a disc of wooly mammoth tusk over 8000 years old. The insert has been cut from the outer part of the tusk known as the bark so it would have been in direct contact with its surroundings thousands of years ago!


Leather: The knife is being sold with a handstitched leather blade slip


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