Symbolic meaning of the Celtic raven:

Because raven´s dark coloring and gruesome dietary habits, ravens were emblems war and death, and sacred to the gods and goddesses of the battlefield, most notably the warrior-god Bran and the war-goddess Morrigan. The raven acted as psychopomp, tasked with escorting the souls of the dead into the Otherworld. The ravens were sometimes viewed as the reincarnation of slain warriors and heroes. Due to their close relationship with the gods, ravens were used for divinatory purposes and considered quite literally as the voices of the gods- the Otherworld deities Lugh and Midir are both accompanied by pairs of magical ravens. (This symbolism is echoed in Norse mythology, where the raven is the messenger of the father-god Odin) Images of three interlinked  ravens are emblems of the triple goddesses of sovereignty, particularly the Morrigan.

Für das Geld eigentlich absolut in Ordnung, abgesehen von dem unsauber geklebten Griff, da hätte man etwas genauer arbeiten können. Die Klinge hatte eine brauchbare Schärfe, welche sich auch auf Rasurschärfe "steigern" lässt.

Wie bei allen bisher erworbenen Messern ein hervorragendes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis für eine handgeschmiedete Klinge mit wunderbar zeitlosem Design. Ganz gleich ob als detailgetreues Ausstellungsstück für die Glasvitrine oder als Arbeitsmesser für alle Gelegenheiten, ein in jeder Hinsicht qualitativ überzeugendes Stück.
