What exactly is a Scandi Grind, short for Scandinavian Grind? A knife with a Scandi grind features a single grind only. In other words, the grind runs right to the edge of the blade with no angle change. As a result, the blade edge is as thin as possible and very sharp. A flat portion of a blade that starts at the top of the bevel and runs to the spine is a telltale feature of a Scandi grind. The Scandi grind origin can be traced to the Seax knife of the Viking Era.
Scandi grind blades are exceptionally well suited to wood working and is an excellent all-purpose bushcraft knife. Knives of the North carries a large selection of Scandi grind bushcraft knives.
