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 six bar Turkish Twist blade show's Kaj's skill at the forge. The damascus is extremely controlled and clear. The blade is perfectly centered with smooth action. The ambidextrous backlock mechanism is super-smooth and easy to use.
Damascus handle scales are formed from Kaj's deeply etched damascus. Both the liners and the backbar are meticulously fileworked.
An elegant gent's daily carry, but also at home in nearly any collection. Tremendous old world charm!
