Description: carlMichael Almqvist has been a knifemaker for over 30 years, having crafted his first knife at 15 years old. The many years of artistry clearly show in this exceptional Swedish puukko. This knife has been in a private collection since it was made by carlMichael in the summer of 2006. It has been well cared for and is in near-new condition. The left side of the blade shows slight wear from being stored in its sheath.
The san mai damascus blade was forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Roger Bergh. Roger is among Sweden's best bladesmiths -- showing tremendous control over the steel. A 20C carbon steel core ensures superior edge holding. The raindrop pattern damascus sides are forged from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels. As is traditional in Nordic countries, the blade is created by a true master of the forge, whereas the handle is created by a knifemaker who has focused exclusively on that. This focus allows an amazing level of skill to be developed and carlMichael is at the top of his game.
The handle is exceptional and unique. Swedish masur birch is contrasted with explosion pattern damascus spacers. The handle is nicely contoured and provides a comfortable, sure grip. The knife snaps securely into the sheath.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout.
