Description: Kaj Embretsen's work has a meticulous precision not found anywhere else. Kaj's work has become increasingly rare in the US and I was exceptionally pleased to have him offer us some of his knives.
The three bar blade show's Kaj's skill at the forge. A firecracker pattern edge is combined with twist pattern central and spine bars. The damascus is extremely controlled and clear. The perfectly centered blade is easily opened using ambidextrous thumb dots. The backlock mechanism (also ambidextrous) is super-smooth and easy to use.
Bolsters are formed from Kaj's deeply etched damascus. They meet perfectly with presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood scales. The warm toned wood has tremendous figure. Both the liners and the backbar are meticulously fileworked. The handle is completed with a lanyard loop, integrated into the backbar.
