To this minimalist foundation, we add our laminated cobalt steel, which is renowned for its ability to take and keep an excellent edge. If you’ve had enough of knives that become dull immediately they detect the proximity of a moose or a wild boar, the SK2 Embla is one of the finest and best options available. Of course, the edge is convex, the sharpest/strongest edge construction we know of, and what’s more, the oldest in human history. For handle material we have chosen desert ironwood, an extremely hard and compact wood, so dense that it does not float in water. It can be treated with any kind of furniture polish, gun stock oil or other liquids containing thinner and linseed oil. Should the knife happen to get dull, use one of our DC4 combination whetstones. A black, low-hanging leather sheath houses the knife when not in use.
