Early Medieval Cooking Set

This rustic cooking set is based on implements commonly used during the early Middle Ages and Viking period.  There is a roasting fork, eating knife and ‘essendorn’ or eating thorn (which was used in place of a fork).  The steel for these came from some spikes I salvaged from a huge, old growth log washed up on Long Island in the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior.  They were probably from a logging operation in the late 1800’s as the steel is ‘shear steel’..a type of steel that was common before the modern process.  Unlike modern steel it shows a wonderful underlying pattern. The pictures shows one of the spikes used for these.

I’m asking $300 for this set.
