I’d made a conscious decision not to buy anymore pocket knives. I’ve got quite a few and even though I’m happy to live by the N + 1 rule (where N is the number of the thing you own/collect/hoard) sometimes you have to draw a line. Luckily gifts don’t count and Louise is very perceptive when it comes to remembering items that I've expressed interest in. So when she gave me a knife shaped birthday present a couple of years ago it was happy days.
The knife she bought me was made in Gothenburg, Sweden by the small team at Andersson & Copra. Called the Husky it was a high quality friction folder. Very Swedish in its finish and the material used but with a strong design influence from the traditional Japanese Higonokami folding knives. The nicest element for me was the copper handle .... as I love copper.
It quickly became a firm favourite. Great balance and quality. Plus non locking and under 3 inches blade length so UK legal carry. I liked it so much that I got in contact with them to see if we’d be able to stock them on the website. Their response was a very polite “no,” Well actually it was a “no – not yet” and I really like that response. For me it speaks a lot about a makers passion and belief in the product they are making.
I kept in contact with Joel & Adisa and some 18 months later I’m really pleased we are their first retailer in the UK.
So what do you get:
The blade is Sandvik 14c28 steel with a Scandi grind. That makes a great combination of sharpness, strength and ease of sharpening. The blade itself is 72mm long and when open the knife has an overall length of 172mm.
The handles are made from either 1.5mm thick Copper or Brass. It’s a simple high quality design and uses a stainless pivot screw and phosphor bronze washers. Less is very much more with this knife. Both these materials will develop a great patina over time, or can be cleaned with a metal polish.
It's supplied with a wet moulded leather pouch/slip sheath. Perfect for protecting the knife when it's in a bag or in the Land Rover cubby box, where mine often lives.
