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. This is a particularly large and striking example of Kaj's work.
The four bar damascus blade show's Kaj's skill at the forge. The damascus is extremely controlled and clear. A Turkish twist pattern is combined with a firecracker pattern. The perfectly centered blade is easily opened using ambidextrous 18k gold thumb dots. The backlock mechanism (also ambidextrous) is super-smooth and easy to use.
Bolsters are formed from Kaj's deeply etched damascus. They surround jet black ebony scales. The front and rear of the scales are fluted. The hand domed pins are formed from 18k gold. Both the liners and the backbar are meticulously fileworked.
Simply exceptional!
