Knive Maker
Icelander Palli Kristjánsson is carrying on that tradition. Using natural materials also available in the Viking Age he brings them to light in today's modern times in a new and highly artistic way. With his artistic approach to knife making he creates therefore, decorated knives that evoke the feral surroundings of his native land and the Age of his Viking forefathers. As the country's only professional knife-maker he is finding his work in demand with collectors from all over the world seeking out his highly individual creations. For the hilts or handles he uses reindeer antler, the bone and hoof from sheep and cow, whale tooth and bone, and tree that is 12 million-years-old (brown coal or fossilised tree). He also uses an assortment of Icelandic stone. Indeed, Kristjánsson wanders the highlands and lowlands of his beloved country collecting suitable material for his labours of love. And the sheaths he fashions for the knives are no less evocative. Using leather, tree, the skin of cow, seal and fish Kristjánsson creates a fitting holster, often, like the handles, intricately patterned with Viking symbols and carvings. The blades however are not Icelandic. They are either hand-made copies of Iron Age or Viking Age designs from Denmark, Damascus steel, or factory-produced blades from other parts of Scandinavia. Knives can be custom made to order, the blade and material selected by the buyer. The knife will be delivered within 4-8 weeks. No two knives and sheaths however
