Seanóir (Elder - Gaelic)

Elders are a gift to us. They teach us how to just be. They no longer seek to posess, accumulate, struggle and strive. They have learned that all forms will fade, and they accept what is, and can just be.


Engravings use OldNordic Runes (Elder Futhark). Words are from the Irish Language.
(The Past is False, The Future is False)

(Truth Exists Here And Now)

The styling of this blade is a conglomeration of Gaelic and Scandinavian influence: The guard is reminiscent of the downswept Scottish style, the ring pommel is an Irish signature, the type XVIIIe blade is often found in Danish pieces, the engraving uses Old Norse runes in the Irish language, and the Celtic knot carved in the grip finishes the decor.
