Large sculpure knife

The artefact

Single-piece engraved handle jack knife featuring a grained bay leaf-shaped blade. The artefact is both a collector's piece, refined during the manufacturing and the sharpening phases, and a knife of daily use. It is entirely hand-made; its shape is inspired by a hunting scene. It features a stainless steel blade and a buck horn refined handle, and a hand-chamfered nickel silver ring.
