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 stainless damascus by Damasteel. This pattern, known as Björkman Twist is an homage renowned Swedish bladesmith Pär Björkman. The powdered metallurgical steel combines RWL-34 and PMC-27 stainless steels and will have excellent edge holding.
The handle is as unique as it is dramatic. It combines many different colored sections of mammoth ivory. The different tones of the ivory is particularly dramatic. The front 'bolster' is formed from crosscut mammoth ivory. Circles formed from cross cut oak are inlaid into the end of the handle. Alternating black fiber and nickel silver spacers assist the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
