Description: Swedish knifemaker 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 to be able to offer this one.
The three bar damascus blade show's Kaj's skill at the forge. The damascus is extremely controlled and clear. A firecracker pattern edge is combined with two bars of tightly twisted damascus. The perfectly centered blade is easily opened using ambidextrous 24k gold ' Dellana' 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. They surround presentation grade mammoth ivory bark scales. The deep green colors in the ivory are particularly rare and desireable. Both the liners and the backbar are meticulously fileworked. The handle is completed with a gold lanyard loop, nicely reflecting tones in the gold pins used throughout.
Simply exceptional!
