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. When Kaj showed me his carving/whittling knives, I was immediately captivating. Much simpler than his high end art knives, his whittlers are perfect for the carving enthusiast.
The blade is formed from a san mai. A central core of 1870 carbon steel is surrounded by mild steel. The flats are forge textured. A Scandi grind ensures high performance wood cutting.
The handle is hand formed from Swedish masur birch wood. The elongated, faceted handle swells at the middle for a secure, comfortable grip across hours of carving.
The knife is accompanied by a traditional Swedish birch bark blade protector.
The knife photographed is representative of the knife you will receive. Each knife will vary slightly in measurements and weight.
Excellent work throughout!
