This custom knife – named “Morten” after the Norwegan metal smith Morten Håkonsen—was a unique opportunity to experiment with a variety of materials to best complement the striking blue-tinted knife blade.
The final choice of materials for the knife handle was limited to blue-tinted Brazilian rosewood burl, aluminum spacer, and stabilized mammoth tusk. The result is a bold look that highlights the unique color and metalwork of the blade.
