Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has an eye for design. This exceptional Swedish hunter works around the shapes natural to an ancient spermwhale tooth and the result is exceptional.
The main section of the handle is formed from an ancient spermwhale tooth. The natural shape has been polished, but otherwise unaffected. The central section has been carved and textured -- both for effect and tactile feel. The front section of the handle includes two sections of stabilized masur birch and one section of mammoth ivory. The mammoth ivory has been scrimshawed by Greger. Nickel silver spacers finish out the handle. The upswept blade nicely compliments the handle. Greger hollow ground it to emphasize the dramatic shape and crisp lines. Exceptional work throughout.
