Roselli knives are designed by Heimo Roselli, who began making knives in 1976 and researched ancient bladesmithing techniques to rediscover the secret for making ultra-high-carbon steel. The Roselli knives are highly functional with little to no extra polish.
The Roselli Opening Knife is a gut hook, which is used to slice hides from the inside, because they're less likely to get bound up with fur or other debris from the hide's exterior. This one has a blunt tip, to reduce the chance of puncturing internal organs and making a mess.
This long time favourite with its rounded tip is a reliable blade for safely and cleanly opening any game from deer to large moose. The blade is made from carbon steel and the handle is cut from curly birch, coated with linseed oil – which ensure a firm grip, even when wet. The blade is also mounted opposite to the contour of the handle, so that you can maintain your grip when performing a drawing cut towards you.
Comes with handcrafted sheath of light vegetable tanned Finnish leather.
