The Mørke


This mørke comes burnt black - it's a old blacksmiths trick to smooth the handle and prevent getting blisters whilst they hammer all day. It wraps the wood in a layer of carbon that's highly resistant to mould, insects, water and even fire. It also hardens the wood, making it less likely to crack or splinter. This process is called "Charring" - burning and rubbing in oil whilst the wood is still hot/warm. 

The polish-finish high carbon steel head is based on an old Dane-style head, and is affixed to a charred Ash haft; it has been hand-leather wrapped in our workshop with a chunky black leather grip and choke.
