How Did It Start?
At the core of these special knives is the exclusive “Lost at sea” pattern, which was inspired by a Nordic wave design. Pairing old with new, we made the display handle from C63000 Nickel Aluminum Bronze, a material often used on seaworthy vessels today. These handles will gently patina over time and will help to achieve a sunken ship feel!
Let’s see all four of them!

On the inside of the display handle of all four Norseman, there is a unique design of a Nordic inspired ship.
With knives like these, a Damascus blade just makes sense. We decided to utilize a rose Damasteel pattern.
All four knives will come with brass spacers and thumbstud installed. This will help match the patina with the handle which will look amazing! However we will be providing matching anodized titanium replacements of these parts for you to be able to match the body screws if desired.
Additionally, we used a different material for our bearing cages. Instead of our standard black machined Delrin, we manufactured these really cool semi-transparent ULTEM bearing cages to help match the theme.
A Special Home
Putting these very special knives in our regular plastic cases just felt wrong. So we had a little help from an old pal Jo. He made these incredible wooden boxes. Each box has a different set of Nordic runes, each telling their own story.

February 9th Auction Update
So here is the story...
Thank you all for your continued patience with our Norseman 4000 series auctions. We've made a few mistakes with these and we want to explain what happened.
With the first auction for #4000-4, we had an issue with people bidding who had no intention of actually completing the purchase. Our business is all about integrity and we have made some changes to prevent this from happening in the future. We also had an issue with extra sales tax added onto the bid that the winner was not prepared for. We have solved this issue in the updated terms and conditions for the auctions that you can read below.
At that point we decided to delay the auction until we had a clear and concise way to move forward. In that time, the auction for Norseman #4000-3 ran when it was not supposed to. It was a technical error that scheduled it without our knowledge and didn't even provide us with the data on who was involved.
With these issues in mind we have decided to re do the auctions from the beginning with a few tweaks and terms and conditions outlined below. Our customers and fans mean everything to us and we want these auctions to go as smoothly as possible for everyone involved.
Good luck and happy bidding!
