The Karesuando Galten (or: The Boar) is a typical Scandinavian fixed knife. The handle of curly birch wood is rubbed with oil so it can better stand the elements. The ergonomic shape of the handle makes this knife really comfortable to use. The 12c27-Sandvik steel blade has a scandi-grind, a typical Scandinavian way of sharpening which makes the edge very strong and easy to sharpen. The blade and handle are separated by a beautiful brass bolster.
The knife comes in a traditional leather belt sheath with plastic insert.
