This exquisite historical Viking age knife was probably made from a cut-down sax blade. The blade is pattern welded, and the fittings, shown in more detail to the left and right, are magnificent. The grip is in the form of a bird, with decorations incised into the wood and bronze making up the grip. The total length of the knife is 31cm (12.5in). X-ray images show that the tang is quite short.

I got: Earth!! Which Element Perfectly Completes Your Soul?The element of earth is strongly defined by dependability. Whether that is through a routine, a relationship or a general atmosphere of discipline, it sounds like you could use a bit of that stability in your life. Maybe focus a bit on a specific relationship or friendship, or even try to spend a bit of time on that project that's gotten pushed to the back burner.
