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 both the inspiration and execution of this finely wrought knife.
Michael began this knife with a blade made by Roger Bergh. Roger is among Sweden's best bladesmiths -- showing tremendous control over damascus. The dramatic pattern combines 20C and 15N20 and will have excellent edge holding.
The handle is inspired by the super secret Stealth aircraft used by the U.S. Air Force - one can see how it echoes the angular shape of the B2 Stealth Bomber, sculpted in a series of geometric sharp angles. A deep choil provides a comfortable finger rest while evoking the wing shape of the Stealth Bomber, while a black curly birch 'bolster' nicely complements the cross-cut clear spalted birch main section. Despite the angular shape, the knife is exceptional comfortable when held. Red and black fiber spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The knife snaps securely into the hard rawhide leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
