The Karesuando Boar Exclusive is a very fine piece of handcraft made in the Swedish part of Lapland in a traditional Northern Scandinavian way.
The Blade is 10cm (4.2 inches) long, 2.4 cm (0,95 inches) wide and 3mm (0.125 inches) thick, is Very Sharp and is made from high quality Sandvik 12C27 stainless "surgical" steel (HRC 57) sharpened with a flat Scandinavian grind.
The blade extends with an internal tang that stretches approx 2.5" into the handle and is secured very firmly so that it won't come loose. In fact Karesuando offers a Lifetime Guarantee that if the blade comes loose you will get an new knife straight away! Basically the blade will never come loose! The internal tang design is very beneficial from a weight perspective.
The Handle is made from curly birch stained with a golden red/brown colour and also has a reindeer antler spacer.
The Sheath is made from half-tanned cow hide leather.
This knife is brilliant for hunting, fishing and forest activities. It is also suitable for carving and could be used in all kinds of outdoor activities such as survival exercises, bushcraft and camping.
I bought my Boar knife quite a few years ago now and it does everything I need it to, whether it’s paunching a rabbit, skinning and butchering a deer or batoning wood for a camp fire. For me it’s the perfect size and it holds an edge really well. I’ve just bought a second one as a birthday present for my nephew who is big into deer stalking and rabbit shooting. This has an updated sheath, which I like the look of very much and I’ve no doubt it my nephew will get as much use out of his as I have mine. I should also mention the great service from Natural Man: excellent customer service and quick delivery times.
