Inspired by the late artist Frank Frazetta and his painting- “Conan The Destroyer, Berserker.” This is a small (15”+) rendition of my interpretation of the great knife carried by the Berserker. In the Old Norse written corpus, berserkers were those who were said to have fought in a trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the modern English word berserk (meaning "furiously violent or out of control"). Berserkers are attested to in numerous Old Norse sources. This Berserker is hand forged from O1 tool steel, heat treated to a 59-61Rc with a flat to convex bevel. Aged/antiqued/Gun blued finish. Black Linen micarta pommel with exquisite double dyed Amboyna Burl handles and black g10 liners. Finished off with handmade copper/brass mosaic pins and brass tubing for the lanyard hole. A piece of art but also very functional and usable. As with all carbon steel knives it is best kept a thin layer of mineral oil or other knife oil on the exposed steel. This aides in the reduction of rust over time. A patina may occur but that will only add more character to this Wicked~Awesome knife.
