Description: Half horn knives are a hallmark of Sami culture. The Sami are a migratory people of Nordic countries that survive by herding reindeer.
The blade is a complex explosion pattern forged from 20C and 25N20 carbon steels. This results in an immediately captivating blade that will hold an exceptional edge. The blade was forged by renowned bladesmith Robert Mattson. The handle combines reindeer antler with masur birch. The masur birch wood has excellent grain structure that reminds me of the rays of the sun and has a smooth oiled finish. The reindeer antler has been sculpted and scrimshawed by Greger. The sheath has a leather upper and a reindeer bottom. The reindeer antler has been scrimshawed. The leather has been hand tooled. Exceptional work throughout.
