Description: Kaj Embretsen's knives are among my favorite pieces found anywhere. There are few makers in the world that have the precision matched with artistry that is found here.
The deep blue of the exhibition grade mammoth ivory verges on black. Highlights from the 14kt gold pins and bail bring warmth to the piece. The backbar and liners have been fully fileworked. The lock release, which is integral to the backbar has been scalloped. The Damascus pattern is extremely cleanly etched and fascinating.
As you would expect from Kaj, the action, along with the fit and finish, is superb. The blade is perfectly centered.
