Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a sense of design rarely found elsewhere. The stacked handle is formed from sculpted sections of African blackwood, fossil walrus ivory, and stabilized willow root burl. The front "bolster" is formed from side cut fossil mammoth ivory and shows off the tremendous grain structure inherent to the ivory. The blade is was forged by Paul Strande in Sweden and was ground and heat treated by Greger. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
