Description: The original carving by Isak Bergh (Roger's 27 year old son) on this spectacular knife evokes the cold wind of the far North. These collaborations between Isak and Roger have raised both makers' work to a new level. Since Isak is now studying 3-D computer animation, there will be fewer collaborations between him and Roger.
The fit and finish, as you would expect from a maker of Roger's fame, is spectacular. Here, he brings together contrasting tones of exhibition grade desert ironwood with fossil ivory and reindeer antler for a unique effect. Nickel spacers separate handle materials. The balance point is just in from of the ironwood spacer, making for a very comfortable feel in the hand.
