Description: Kaj Embretsen's work has a meticulous precision not found anywhere else. Kaj's knives have become increasingly rare in the US and I was exceptionally pleased when he let us know he had just completed this folder. Kaj is best known for his exceptional backlocks.
The three bar damascus blade show's Kaj's skill at the forge. The damascus is extremely controlled and clear. The perfectly centered blade is easily opened using ambidextrous 14k gold thumb dots. The backlock mechanism (also ambidextrous) is super-smooth and easy to use.
Front and rare bolsters are formed from Kaj's deeply etched damascus -- forged specifically for the bolsters into a sunburst pattern. They surround presentation grade sambar stag scales. Stag of this quality is rarely found today. Both the liners and the backbar are meticulously fileworked. 14k gold pins are used throughout. The handle is completed with a lanyard hole, integral into the backbar.
Simply exceptional!
