The first time I visited my mentor Steen Madsen in Denmark, he gave me this very special picking knife which remains one of my most precious tools. He had the blades made by a blacksmith - who specializes in making reproductions of Viking tools for the museum in Roskilde - after an etching of a basketmaker’s picking knife from Diderot’s encyclopedia. Steen turned the handle from a birch burl and showed me how to make this very Scandinavian sheath out of birch bark and fir roots that we collected in the forest. Isn’t it beautiful? Basketmakers are historians! (Especially Steen!) Thanks again for everything!!! 🌿🌿🌿#handtools #toolsofthetrade #toolsday #replica #reproduction #history #viking #knifemaking #toolslovers #toolsofmytrade #birch #forge #blacksmith #blacksmithing #woodturning #toolporn
