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.
The exquisite blade was forged by Styrefors. 20C and 15N20 carbon steels are combined into complex mosaic damascus bars. A firecracker damascus cutting edge and twist damascus spine surround a central mosaic bar of spider damascus. This gives the impression that spiders are running along the blade. The finely detailed damascus is extremely engaging and will have you examining it for hours.
The stacked handle combines a crosscut ancient walrus ivory bolster with walnut burl, tin, and mammoth ivory. The mammoth ivory is engraved in traditional Sami-style and shows incredible complexity. A carved mammoth ivory end cap finishes the handle. The highly sculpted handle is exceptionally comfortable and locks your fingers into place.
The traditional Swedish single seam rawhide sheath is tooled and features mammoth ivory overlays. Like the handle, the ancient ivory is engraved in Sami motif. Matching mosaic spider damascus is set into window frames in the mammoth ivory of the sheath. The sheath is nearly as much of a work of art as the knife … and that says a lot.
Exceptional work throughout from a maker that is making waves throughout Northern Europe.
