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 Swedish Long Hunter. From damascus blade to the excellent selection of materials, this knife is sure to become a family heirloom! This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made. It is in brand new condition and by all appearances, CarlMichael could have made it yesterday!
The 6 inch blade is hand ground twist pattern stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. A long recurve in the cutting edge increases cutting power dramatically. Damasteel has excellent edge holding and chip resistance with little to no maintenance.
The handle combines crosscut sections stabilized curly birch with a large central section of crosscut ancient walrus ivory. The sculpted and contoured handle fills your hand and is extremely comfortable. Spacers set between the handle and bolsters will help the natural materials adjust to humidity and temperature changes. We recommend using camellia oil to protect the natural handle materials from drying out over time.
To keep the knife close at hand, a Swedish style leather custom sheath is included. The belt loop is set on a ring to allow the sheath to move out of the way when sitting down.
Excellent work throughout!
