Description: This classic Swedish puukko exhibits an exceptional sense of design that I have come to expect from Greger. The blade steel was forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Mattias Styrefors using 15N20 and 20C carbon steels. It was meticulously ground by Greger. A deep etch results in a very dramatic feel and appearance. The choice of steels assures a keen, long lasting edge.
The stacked handle is formed from stabilized birch root burl along with ebony and mammoth. Nickel silver spacers have been fileworked. The resulting handle lends richness and artistry to a well-proportioned piece and is extremely comfortable in the hand. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
