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 Swedish puukko.
The handle combines stabilized masur birch with reindeer antler and nickel silver spacers. The masur birch enhances the warm tones of the antler. The handle finishes off with a slight hook, resulting in a sure hand-hold. The blade was forged by Swedish Bladesmith Ivan Linderborg. The flats have been forge finished, whereas the bevels are polished. The sheath draws on Sami styled half horn sheaths, but replaces the reindeer antler section with sculpted masur birch. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
