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 detailed mammoth art knife. With such a dramatic knife, it is no surprise that it won 3rd Prize for the Swedish Championship Full Tang category.
The multi-bar composite Damascus blade was forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Roger Bergh. Roger is among Sweden's best bladesmiths -- showing tremendous control over the Damascus. A random pattern integral Damascus blade is accented to stunning effect by the well defined grind lines. As is traditional in Nordic countries, the blade is created by a master of the forge, whereas the handle is created by a knifemaker who has focused exclusively on that. This focus allows each maker to specialize.
The handle is exceptional and unique. Rich caramel toned mammoth scales combine with a carved cream toned mammoth ivory scene. A mammoth is depicted against an background that includes a volcano. Nickel silver pins set the mammoth scales. The handle is nicely rounded and provides a comfortable hold. The knife snaps securely into the sheath . Excellent fit and finish throughout.
