Collection: Karesuando

These knives are produced in Karesuando, Sweden, located far north of the Arctic Circle. They have their origins in the hostile Arctic climate. The raw materials are taken from the surrounding country. Leather, horn and bone from the reindeer, and curly-grained birch, are the main components.

I’m really impressed with these knives. They have a wonderful feel in the hand. The wood is finished to a satiny smoothness I usually associate with careful hand sanding. The finish gives a better grip than a shiny surface, but doesn’t raise blisters when working hard. The blades are well ground and sharpened. The shapes and sizes are ideal for all-around utility use. You can tell that these are knives made by folks who use knives. I’m very glad that I’m selling these, because if I saw them for sale by someone else, I’d have to buy some. I found myself looking for excuses to handle the knives while working up the catalog. Each comes with a stout sheath of the deep pouch style. There are no straps or snaps to fumble with when removing or replacing the knife. Where indicated, there is a plastic insert to protect the sheath and the user.

For the technically minded, the stainless blades are 12C27, and the carbon blades are Uddeholm steel #1770 (0.7% C, 0.3% Si, 0.5% Mn). Both are hardened to 57 on the Rockwell C scale. This gives an excellent balance of edge-holding and ease of sharpening.
