Summer of 2017

Greetings from a really cold summer in Sweden. I can definitely say 2017 will not be mentioned in the history books as the year I actually got a tan. Not even close... Been spending some time tin the smithy instead preparing materials for custom orders and...

Photo studio

I do not have a fixed place where I can keep my photo studio always ready. I´m currently using the guestroom/gym in the house as the studio when needed. This demands that I disassemble the equipment when I am done which, in it´s turn, demands av very simple setup that...

Welding damascus billets my way – part 2

Spirits of the earth

I have done very few matching knife-sets but now it´s time for another one. Roughness with some style I would say, where high contrast dramatic details meets clean lines. All handmade from scratch of course. It´s soon midnight here in Sweden and I have just watched...

Back from FicX Paris show

Back to the rainy Swedish summer with clouds of bloodsucking mosquito chasing me and my dog down the narrow forest paths at the mountain side behind my house. It feels nice breathing the clean Swedish country-side-air again - I´m clearly not a big-city guy; big crowds...

FicX Paris

Around 1 month left to the FicX Paris show and I´m starting to feel the stress. Got one fully engraved fixed blade soon done and a very nice backlock-folder lying on my bench. I really hope I manage to finish the folder. Regardless I think it will be as nice show as...

Go Viking on a sheath!

To follow up my last post about what tools I use when I work my leather sheaths, I rigged the camera to show you how it looks like when I actually uses them. The leather is a piece of moist Rawhide leather. You can see the final result in this...

What’s in the leather-box?

All sheaths I make is made from Rawhide leather. Making a Scandinavian knife-sheath does not require much tools, the trick is to learn how the leather works and do the right measurements to fit the knife properly. The leather is always tooled while wet and is, when...

Wave illusions

The mind can easily be fooled by optical illusions were lines and shadows tricks us into thinking something is different from reality. I have played with the thoughts of engraving something that "bend" reality a little bit and gives the knife an extra level of detail...
