Barbarian Dagger – Kullervo

This dagger, named after the Finnish tragic hero Kullervo, is loosely inspired by antenna hilted knives from the Hallstatt period. It’s forged of four strands of pattern-welded steel– the two center strands are nine layers each and the spine and edge are seven hundred layers. I found it in a dark drawer down a side corridor of my subconscious.

At its widest point Kullervo is 4.8cm and it is 38.5cm long. The stand is birds-eye rock maple.

  1. Great works!
    How can i buy your work?

  2. Thank you Pannan. I don’t have any work currently available. If I do have work available for sale in future I’ll post it here on the website. Thanks for the interest.

  3. I’m looking forward to it. . .

  4. I too wish to care-take one of your works. You have amazing talent and are one of the few people who should be able to demand a price that should allow you comfort while you pursue your art. Please do let me know if any of your works come up for sale or if you take apprentices so I might make my own 🙂

  5. Very nice work, some of the best works are found in the dark depths of the mind.
