Description: This exceptional hunter was created by award winning Swedish knifemaker Alexander Ahl. Alexander was born in 1991 in the northern-most parts of Sweden. Ever since he was a kid, he was fascinated by the art and craftsmanship of handmade knives. He was fortunate enough to meet world renowned bladesmith Mattias Styrefors, who eventually became his mentor and friend. This Sami style knife shows his exceptional attention to detail.
The exquisite san mai damascus blade was forged by Styrefors. A central bar of 20C carbon steel is surrounded by damascus cladding. The damascus is deeply etched and high contrast, allowing you to see the pattern clearly from afar. The spine is fileworked and provides an excellent thump purchase. The blade features a Scandi grind and is razor sharp. Styrefors' touchmark is on the right side of the blade.
The horn handle is very traditional and has a slim oval shape that fits comfortably and securely in the hand. The stacked handle combines reindeer antler, moose antler, and masur birch. The reindeer and moose antler are polished to bring out the natural variations in color. The traditional Sami patterns on the sheath and handle are not scrimshaw, but hand engraving, darkened with alder bark powder. The engraving is very detailed and follows the natural lines of the knife exceptionally, showing tremendous skill.
The full horn sheath is every bit as impressive as the knife. Reindeer antler of this size is exceptionally rare. The reindeer antler has matching Sami engraving and a masur birch accented tip. A braided leather cord and reindeer antler bead allows the sheath to be attached to any belt loop. This will allow the sheath to swing out of the way when sitting down.
Exceptional work throughout!
