      Hi, yes that is my own knife and in fact the first knife I ever started forging. I only just this year decided to use my improved skills on it.
      The knife Says Guðwine technically pronounced “Guthwina” in Anglo Saxon =)

      If you want to have a custom Scandi I think we can work it out, I have alot of antler and can easily Re-order 1080 stock etc… I do not Recommend using the RRS for cost reasons as the labor is much higher but as I said we can work it out either way. Typical lead time on a knife like this is roughly 4 weeks. You can also contact me through my Etsy.com profile http://www.etsy.com/norsewest

      Cheers =)
