In Sweden, this was once the basic Knife. If you asked to borrow a knife, odds are this is what you would get. Now the other models with plastic handles have become more popular. I still prefer the classic lines and the feel of the wood handles. The carbon steel (not laminated) blade is about 3 3/4" (98mm) long, 11/16" wide and .080" thick. The 4" red painted birch handle is suited for average sized hands. Weight with a functional black plastic sheath, is about 2 3/4 ounces.
