Erik Nylund Knives
Erik Nylund makes skillful knives with collector's value, which can be used as everyday tools.
In his own words:
"All my knives are handmade and of my own design. I make only about 20 to 30 knives annually, which means that all knives are unique gifts and perfect collector's items.
I make my knives respecting old traditions and by utilizing modern technology, especially in the area of heat treatment.
All knives are made of carefully selected and collected raw materials. All my knives are made for heavy use, even the decorative ones.
All Carbon Steel blades are hand forged. Stainless steels in use are; 12C27, 13C26 and ATS-34, RWL-34 and Damasteel.
The wood for the grip can be almost anything that is suitable. I use mainly Birch Burl and Masur Birch.
Ferrules (Mountings) can also be made from any suitable materials. I use mainly brass, bronze, silver (925), Nickel Silver, stones, bones and horns.
The sheaths I make from carefully selected natural tanned leather or leather with rawhide centre. All sheaths are hand sewed"
