Description: Swedish knifemaker Greger Forselius combined his skill at knifemaking with a blade forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Mattias Styrefors.
The damascus blade is a nice mix of bold and fine patterns. A central core of 20C carbon steel ensures a keen, long lasting edge. The blade is high contrast and very clear. It is absolutely exceptional!
The elegant stacked handle combines spalted alder wood, oak, and snakewood. Spacers formed from sterling silver were hand fileworked. The snakewood is carved and textured for a very elegant appearance. The combined colors and tones of the handle is quite enticing. The handle is nicely shaped for a secure, comfortable grip.
The knife is accompanied by a traditional Swedish single seamed leather sheath.
