Icelandic pattern knife by Nickolay Yermolenko

Based on a 10th century Icelandic design, this knife works equally well for utility or defense. The grip shape makes it almost impossible to let go unintentionally.

And a basic table knife variant for variety:

If you want one of these or something similar, let me know. I’ll put you in touch with Nik. These make very unique gifts because no two are the same and all are made by a master. The cutting edge on mine is still strong ten months later.

    Wow, not bad at all. How do I place an order?

      Email Nikolay Yermolenko and let him know what you’d like. He makes quite a few knife and tool types (axes, chef’s knives, etc).

    I have several of nikolais knives and have given them as gifts to close friends and the quality is pretty much unmatched by common fixed-blade production knives. I highly recommend them. I carry one almost everywhere I go, use it daily, and I still haven’t had to sharpen it after almost a year. He makes a couple of other really great designs- I have a pichok he made that is nearly indispensable at the campsite.

    Definitely since that most likely includes a leather sheath and shipping.

    I think I paid $40 for mine.

    My Buddy Alex Stuart, a knife and sword maker, does a number of similar pieces, especially out of old rail road spikes. He made me a pretty damned credible tomahawk head out of one as well. That top image has a very familiar feel to me, having been in the SCA for over 30 years…

    Sent you a Facebook PM on how to get a hold of Nickolay Yermolenko.

    Speaking of easy to hang onto knives, here is a very different approach to such a thing — very easy to carry and conceal.
