Description: Kaj Embretsen's work has a meticulous precision not found anywhere else. Regrettably, it has become increasingly rare in the US. This small hunter would make a perfect daily carry knife. This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made. It is in brand new, unused condition and by all appearances, Embretsen could have made it yesterday.
The 3-1/3 inch drop point blade is Kaj's own twist pattern damascus forged from carbon steels. The damascus is engaging, both from afar and when examined closer. Kaj's mark is on the right side of the blade. At 3-1/3 inches, this blade will make a perfect carry whether in the city or as a caping knife while out in the field.
The handle is highly figured black ash burl. The wood has a dramatic swirling figure and features many burl eyes prized by wood workers. The handle is sculpted to provide a sure, comfortable grip. The handle is finished with a brass guard and alternating black and brass spacers.
To keep the knife close at hand, a hand tooled, pouch style leather sheath is included.
Nice work throughout!
