With a barrel-shaped oiled Scandinavian birch wood handle and an approximately 2.5 mm thick, tapered carbon steel blade, you can take your creativity to new levels. The knifes full rat-tail tang runs throughout the handle, providing both strength and stability in every cut. The birch wood barrel-shaped handle allows you to shape it just how you want it. The knife should always be in the knife sheath when not in use, partly to minimise the risk of cutting injury but also to maintain sharpness. Carbon steel rusts, so wipe and oil the blade after use. The characteristic woodcarving knives are highly regarded around the world and are well known for their excellent sharpness and high quality, not least because they are used by skilled craftsmen in Nusnäs, where one of Swedens most famous national symbols, the Dala horse, is made.
