Karesuandokniven Moose Special




The Moose Special is a beautiful and prize worthy knife. The design is a tasteful combination of modern knife shaping and traditional Swedish knife culture. The weight and size makes this a neat everyday knife suitable for us who like shorter blades. I've been using this knife now for over twenty years, hiking and hunting. Back in the days when I got it I liked it so much I wanted to make it even more special, so I got a gold smith to make and engrave at brass plate with my initials to mount on the handle butt.
