Lary, Ed – Ivory Viking "Ghost" Puukko - Fixed Blade
Ed Lary Handmade Ivory Viking Puukko Knife …
This handmade, one-of-a-kind collector piece by Ed Lary is built with a Norse Viking theme. A Puukko is equal parts artistic expression and tool. Making it required lot of different skills: not only those of a knifemaker, but also those of a bladesmith, a jeweler, a designer, and a scrimshander to make this piece come together. The scrimshaw was researched and completed by Sandra Karst Stone depicting Viking art of the Jellinge style. This is a very “classy” piece fit for a King.
