A year-long project that began in fall, 2011 on a napkin in a Chinese restaurant a few miles north of Copenhagen, Denmark, this knife is the culmination of a totally committed Danish hunter who took my invitation to assume the major role in the design, selection of materials, and the styling, color, and embellishment of the English bridle leather sheath completely to heart. From the sheath’s fob encapsulating a 1912 Danish penny commemorating the launch and subsequent sinking of RMS TITANIC, to the stunning stainless Damascus authored by world renowned Devin Thomas, this knife blade is flat-ground, has a fully tapered tang encircled by a “climbing vines” pattern, and is cloaked in 20 year-old ultra-premium Indian Sambar Elk. This one-of-a-kind hunting companion that I was proud to present in person to its equally proud owner in the little town of Birkerod, Denmark preceded our journey together to Sweden where we hunkered down in a log cabin built in 1790 when we weren’t hunting the elusive Roe Deer. I cannot remember when I made a knife that was as enthusiastically anticipated or so heartily received as this one. The Grønborg Custom.
