Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius creates a great knife!. This traditional Swedish Puukko has a well rounded handle that fits very comfortably in the hand. Moose antler is alternated with amboyna burl. Brass spacers reflect the warm tones of the amboyna. Amboyna continues to be one of my favorite woods, with its warm reddish tones and swirling grain structure. The moose antler has been lightly sculpted at the spine, creating a secure, comfortable grip. The blade, which was forged by renowned Swedish Bladesmith Paul Strande is a san mai. Three distinct layers of steel are forged together so as to create softer, supportive sides and a hard center core. The result is an exceptionally long lasting edge. The bevels have been mirror polished, whereas the spine and flats are textured. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
