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 Puukko Hunter.
The high performance, AEB-L stainless steel blade was hand ground by renowned Swedish knifemaker Anders Hedlund. Many knifemakers and metallurgists feel that AEB-L, with its small crystalline size, tremendous edge stability and toughness, is among the best stainless steels used in knifemaking today. AEB-L was developed for razor blades with a very fine grain structure making it easy to sharpen while maintaining good edge holding capabilities. The blade features a textured top and a Scandi grind. This style of grind is preferred by bushcrafters for its incredible ability for carving wood.
The handle combines stabilized masur birch with stacked birch bark and mammoth ivory. The slim-profile handle is exceptionally comfortable. The handle is completed with a braided leather lanyard and birch bark lanyard bead. The combination of materials and tones is very elegant.
The accompanying masur birch wood sheath is perfectly fit to the knife and also made by carlMichael.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
