Description: P-O Eklund is a master of the Sami styled knife and regularly receives awards in the Swedish Championships. Seeing his work, it is no surprise.
This knife is truly a one-of-a-kind piece. The blade was forged by Swedish bladesmith Kent Andersson. The 20C carbon steel blade will have exceptional edge holding and durability. The flats are a polished forge finish. The grinds are mirror polished.
The handle is very traditional and has a slim oval shape that fits comfortably and securely in the hand. The reindeer antler has a slight gloss finish, bringing out natural variations in color. Masur birch spacers add a nice contrast. The traditional Scandinavian patterns on the sheath and handle are not scrimshaw, but hand engraving, darkened with alder bark powder. The engraving is very detailed, showing tremendous skill in implementation. Exceptional fit and finish throughout! Accompanied by reindeer leather storage pouch.
