Description: Award winning Swedish bladesmith Henry Hildén held nothing back when he created this mammoth and spalted elm hunter. Henry is an extremely accomplished Swedish knifemaker, forging damascus that clearly sets him as one of the greatest makers anywhere. His knives are quite traditional in their approach, striving for excellent fit and finish, as well as performance.
Twisted pattern Damascus is surrounded by bold firecracker pattern spine and edge -- forged to shape from 1770 and 15N20 carbon steels for exceptional edge retention. The patterns are extremely clear and show tremendous control and skill. A swedge along the spine brings weight out of the blade while keeping the tip strong.
The stacked handle is formed from stabilized spalted elm wood, buffalo horn, and cross cut mammoth ivory separated by sterling silver spacers. The ivory is spectacular, incorporating cream and caramel toned rays. The buffalo horn offers excellent contrast between the elm and ivory.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
The knife is accompanied by a hand tooled Swedish rawhide sheath.
