Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a flair for design. This handle on this traditional Swedish Puukko has been highly sculpted. The resulting shape is well rounded, fitting securely and comfortably in the hand. Nickel silver spacers separate the pieces of the stacked handle. The main part of the handle is formed from birch root burl, with spacers created from reindeer antler and desert ironwood. The two sections of birch root burl have been differently dyed so as to form an excellent contrast.
The blade is formed from Thunderforge Damascus. The twist pattern is bold and shows off well both from a distance and up close.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
