Description: Kaj Embretsen's work is among the most impressive found anywhere. This lockback folder was created 3 years ago. It has been held in a private collection and is in new condition -- it could have been made yesterday. All parts are gun blued. About the time that this knife was made, Kaj stopped making gun blued pieces because it is very hard on the health of the maker. The gun blued effect merges in a very dramatic way with the deep, dark blue mammoth ivory and could not have been achieved without the darkened steel. The mammoth ivory is some of best ivory that I have encountered, with a deep blue background with brown veins. Excellent action with a perfectly centered blade.
