Description: CarlMichael Almqvist has been a knifemaker for nearly 45 years, having crafted his first knife at 15. The many years of artistry clearly show in this exceptional Mountain Hunter.
The 6 inch clip point blade is stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. The blade was hand ground by renowned Swedish knifemaker Tommy Eklund. The fileworked spine provides an excellent thumb purchase. Tommy Eklund's mark is on the right side of the blade.
The subhilt-style handle made by CarlMichael combines very rare stabilized Muskox horn with spalted oak. Muskox (Ovibos moschatus) is an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae. Muskoxen primarily live in Arctic North America and Greenland, with small populations in Sweden, Siberia and Norway. The world population is estimated at between 80,000 and 125,000. The convoluted, translucent figure is immediately captivating. Muskox horn is among the rarest handle material used by knifemakers today. A matching Damasteel guard and finial complete the handle.
An exquisite display stand made from matching spalted oak ensures this knife will be at the center of attention while on display!
Exceptional work throughout!
