Loki, the most dangerous god in Old Norse mythology, also was a trickster and a prankster. His dark side, however, was willfully sinister with dire consequences that often got out of control. True to form, the black African Ebony overtones of the handle include African Ebony combined with subdued grays that both exemplify and compliment the spirit of Loki, a figure of chameleon-like contrasts whose purposes were both lighthearted and intentionally deliberate and nefarious. Whether used for personal defense or for utilitarian purposes, Loki sets an uncommon standard that will meet or exceed expectations. And that’s no joke!
