A Leather Sheath to the Carving Knives

We reported about the beautiful set of carving knives made by Tod's stuff for our Nykobing event. Some may have wondered how we would store these knives. This is no longer a secret. Voilà:

These leather sheaths were done by Andreas Petitjean, a well-known leather carver and scabbard maker of museum quality. If you are interested in the work of Andreas, then you can contact him via the address in our artisan list.

The knives and the sheath will play a big role in Nykobing. Especially on Monday August 2, when our lord and knight Dominic Sewell hosts a feast in honour of his opponent in the Joust, Toby Capwell. We'll be back after the event with photos from the dishes we served at this feast. Possibly also with a few recipes.
