Description: Conny Persson's knives are an inspiration to knifemakers and collectors. His influence in easily seen in many of the other Nordic makers. Regrettably, very little of his work gets to the US these days. This exceptional hunter has been in a private collection. It has been meticulously cared for and by all appearances, Persson could have made it yesterday.
The three bar composite mosaic damascus blade has excellent contrast and very complex patterns. It show's Conny's skill at its best. The central bar of mosaic damascus is forged using carbon steels and pure nickel, creating particularly high contrast. The firecracker pattern edge bar and twist damascus bar are forged from Uddeholm 15N20 and 20C carbon steels, ensuring the best possible edge.
The dramatic handle combines willow root, reindeer antler and ebony. The swirling, convoluted figure in the willow root is nicely complemented by the simple figure in the dark toned ebony and the light toned reindeer antler. The handle is completed with a mosaic damascus finial.
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled, hand sewn custom Swedish leather sheath.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout from one of the great Nordic knifemakers.
