'Finnish Inspired'

Blade 6.25" ; Handle 5"

This knife is inspired by the Saami traditions of Finland & Far Northern Europe. The blade is Turkish Damascus, or four bars of oppositely twisted 12 layer damascus. The handle is made of local curly maple & antler with a Sterling silver bolster, pommel & spacer. The handle swells at the end of the knife so one may draw it even when wearing mittens or gloves. There is a Finnish spectrolite set in the pommel. The sheath is made from the same piece of curly maple as the handle and there is a mother-of-pearl inlay of my maker's mark inset with cocobolo. The sheath sweeps at the bottom so it won't catch on any twigs or brush as one walks through the forest. The leather is vegetable tanned and the knife makes quite a satisfying *snap* when sheathed. A Northern King's Hunter!
