Description: Michael Almqvist has been a knifemaker for nearly 30 years, having crafted his first knife at 15. The many years of artistry clearly show in this exceptional Sami style hunter.
The multi-bar composite Damascus blade was forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Mattias Styrefors. Mosaic Damascus edge and spine bars are forged from 20C and 15N20 carbon steels for a keen, long lasting edge. Central bars of pure nickel and 20C alternate, creating silver and darker lines. 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.
The traditional Scandinavian pattern engraved on the reindeer antler sheath and handle shows tremendous control. The detail is incredibly clear and well done. Damascus fittings complete the handle and result in a perfect balance. The traditional half horn sheath features a leather upper and reindeer antler base with matching engraving. The knife snaps securely into the sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
