ICELANDIC ARTISANS AT WORK
THE KNIFEMAKER OF ICELAND
Kristjánsson wanders the highlands and lowlands of his beloved country collecting suitable materials for his labours of love. The sheaths he fashions for the knives are no less evocative. Using cow, seal and fish leather, Kristjánsson creates a fitting sheath. Often the sheaths, like the handles are intricately patterned with Viking symbols and carvings. No two knives and sheaths are the same. When you own a Kristjánsson knife, you can be sure that it’s a unique handmade knife.
