What distinguishes a Swedish knife? Perhaps the apparently simple design or maybe providing a good and safe function, all without frills. The classic clean lines discern a philosophy that honours the skill and experience of the mind, where the tool is allowed to play its part but to outshine the one that holds the handle – the perfect combination. So it is with Jarl and Juni, our new sheath knives. Handles of rich curly birch, solid nickel silver fittings and sharp blades of laminate powder steel. The world’s best, in our opinion. Open, low hanging black leather sheath, for easy access.
Jarl – is as Earl or Duke, a title used by the most powerful officer in Sweden. The “right hand” to several Swedish kings during the middle age or around 1000 – 1300 A.D., the most powerful public official, during the time when Sweden was christened and became a nation. A good old name, not very common – but sounds powerful and is treated with respect.
