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 Sami style half horn hunter. With such a dramatic knife, it is no surprise that it won 4th Place for the 2006 Swedish Championship Full Tang category.
The carbon steel blade was hand forged by renowned Swedish bladesmith Mahikel Eklund. The flats have been textured and the grinds are satin finished. As is traditional in Nordic countries, the blade is created by a master of the forge, whereas the handle and sheath are created by a knifemaker who has focused exclusively on that. This focus allows each maker to specialize.
The handle is exceptional and unique. Reindeer antler scales have been meticulously engraved in a Sami basket weave pattern. A cutout reindeer is depicted against a forest background. Nickel silver pins set the reindeer antler scales. The handle is nicely rounded and provides a comfortable hold.
The half horn sheath incorporates reindeer antler with a leather upper. The reindeer antler has also been engraved with a basket weave pattern and features an outline of a reindeer. The knife snaps securely into the sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
