Morgan Bible Serving Knife - SOLD
[AMMorgan]

This one-off reproduction was hand crafted by Adam McKay in Australia. The broad, pronged tool steel blade is mounted with solid brass bolsters for ideal balance, and inlaid with plates of luxurious Queen Ebony timber.

The accompanying vegetable tan leather sheath has been molded directly to the knife, hand stitched and decorated with foliate tooling, and finished with a beeswax polish for sheen and durability. The decoration is based on examples in the Museum of London.

The form is of a type of serving knife seen in the Morgan, or Maciejowski Bible of 1250,  being used to cut and serve bread and cheese at the table. This pride of many a lord's medieval table can now lend a refined elegance to your grandest medieval banquet, or simplest cheese platter.
