Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a sense of design rarely found elsewhere. This highly detailed Swedish Puukko hunting knife brings together Gregor's artistic and design sensibilities with flawless results.
The twist pattern blade was ground by Greger from a Damascus bar forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Mattias Styrefors. Mattias began with 20C and 15N20 carbon steels, assuring a keen, long lasting edge. The spine has been fileworked, resulting in a sure thumb purchase.
The stacked handle combines sections of Swedish masur birch separating sculpted and scrimshawed fossil mammoth ivory. Nickel silver surrounds larger fileworked Damascus spacers. The handle has been nicely sculpted for a comfortable hand-hold. The last section of mammoth ivory has been scrimshawed, completing the complimentary center sectionís pattern. Excellent fit and finish throughout. One of Greger's finest to date!
