Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius has become a force to be reckoned with. His sense of design, skill of implementation, and exotic materials clearly set his work apart.
The complex mosaic damascus blade was forged by Swedish bladesmith Vladic Duniluk. The central bar shows off large firecracker blasts. Both the spine and edge bars are and explosion pattern. The stacked handle combines warthog tusk with oosik. The warthog tusk is nicely sculpted, both for feel in and the hand and visual impact. Two complimentary tones of oosik were used. The large, central section has been textured. A mosaic pin completes the back of the handle. Accompanied by a traditional Swedish tooled leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
