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. The handle combines very rare musk ox horn, warthog tusk, masur birch and mammoth ivories. The musk ox horn has a beautiful mottled quality that makes this material so unique. Fully fileworked silver spacers separate birch root burl. The butt is sculpted from fossil mammoth ivory and results in a very secure grip in the hand. The ivory shows off terrific grain structure.
The blade is formed from a tightly twisted stainless Damascus forged by Damasteel. The twist pattern shows off well both from a distance and up close.
Excellent work throughout.
