    Just finished up this little guy for a member here.
    The blade is 2.5" long, 1/8" thick and forged from 1095. The handle is made from a deer leg bone with an epoxy soaked jute wrapping. It has a primitive leather neck sheath, hand stitched with imitation sinew.

    Wow! Not a fan of bone handles, but that looks great as an example of an Otzi. And how you made the blade look is fantastic.

    Beautiful. Nice work. Mind's a little different. Cleaned this deer shoulder up after taking it with my bow.

    I just don't know where you people are seeing a forged Ötzi knife. From my searching, the only metal he had on him when found was his axe head. Please post a link to this knife being related to Ötzi, because I can't find one.

    It's ment to resemble a stone point. Looks of a primitive knife, with the functionality of a modern one.
