Sorry, we could not translate this listing to English.

This knife is a reconstruction of a constant knife from the 15th century ("Wood finds from Freiburg and Constance" No 02,992 panel 34.37). The blade of the original has been broken off and has been reconstructed using similar finds. It is hand-forged from C75 and has been carefully heat-treated to achieve a hardness of about 60HRC (hardness to Rockwell). The faceted handle consists of two shells of boxwood (the original is made of yew), which have been attached to the handle tongue with 4 brass rivets. The wood was finely sanded, treated with linseed oil and then polished. The blade is extremely sharply sanded along the entire length and polished by hand to water grinding stones.
