Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a sense of design rarely found elsewhere. This highly detailed Swedish Bowie brings together Gregor's work with that of Ingmar Nordell. Ingmar formed the stainless Damasteel blade to shape using a hollow grind to accentuate the crisp grind lines. The spine as been fileworked for a secure thumb purchase. A false edge results in an aggressive point.
The blade is matched to the dramatic handle. Fossil whale tooth has been scrimshawed by Greger. Silver spacers have been fileworked. A larger stabilized masur birch spacer brings in warmth to the handle. Front and rear bolsters are formed from aluminum that has been textured. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
