Description: Kaj Embretsen's work has a meticulous precision not found anywhere else. Regrettably, it has become increasingly rare in the US and I was exceptionally pleased to recently have him offer us some of his knives.
This spearpoint utility knife is exceptional. It could easily be a daily carry, but would also be comfortable in nearly any collection.
The hand forged blade was hand forged by Embretsen, combining 1870 and 15N20 carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. The blade is hand hollow ground, for a high performance edge. The Embretsen maker's mark is on the left ricasso.
The handle is made from a solid piece of presentation grade black ash burl wood (Fraxinus nigra). It is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. An antiqued bronze ferrule separates the blade from handle.
The knife is accompanied by a traditional Swedish leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
