Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a sense of design rarely found elsewhere.
The upswept blade is a remarkable stainless Damascus by Damasteel and shows whirlpools in an ocean of steel. The pattern is immediately captivating and the blade will have exceptional edge holding. Both edges have been fully sharpened. Greger's mark is on the right side of the blade.
Copper brings warm tones into the handle. The front bolster is formed from alternating stacked layers of copper and nickel silver. The handle alternates sections of stellar sea cow cheek bone with amboyna burl'. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
