Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has a sense of design rarely found elsewhere. When this is combined with the artistry of Mattias Styrefors the result is exceptional.
Mattias Styrefors is well known for being one of the best Damascus makers in Sweden. Here, he has forged a complex two bar mosaic damascus blade incorporating rose patterns in the steel. The stacked handle is formed from front and rear side cut mammoth ivory, warthog tusk, and dyed and stabilized giraffe bone. The bone has been scrimshawed with a detailed rose. The handle fits perfectly into the hand. Accompanied by a traditional Swedish leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
