Roman 'Wing' Knife

Roman 'Wing' Knife

A stype of ring-knife  with a distinctive 'wing' shaped blade- a style of knife that is found across the Roman Empire.  The blade is hand forged from o1 tool steel  and the handle terminates with a punched and drifted ring.  The handle is made of natural bone (hence variations in colour and blemishes) and it has been been decorated with filed and engraved patterns copied from extant examples in the Museum of London. 

Light and practical, it is ideally suited as an eating knife or for use around the campsite.
