working knife
Hi I’m a veterinarian working with large animals as horses, cows, sheep’s. In my line of work I need a knife that can work and tackle most assignment. For example this years I was hunting for the cause killing sheep’s and goat, where I had to dissect at the field 5 different animal. Then lambing season started and sometimes when u cannot deliver the lams one finds himself decapitating the head of the lamb (this involve going through bone, joint and ligaments) in order to facilitate easier delivery. I must say that after a year of work several dissections and decapitations the blade was not as sharp as it was a year ago (but could still cut your apple and blood sausage with ease). I just finished sharpening it, a process that took 1 hour or so where I discovered just how strong, solid, quality steel we are talking about and thinking I paid 50 bucks for it made me smile with pleasure.

Swedish steel
I allways carry a Eka 7. It´s allmost the same but 1cm shorter blade and a handle with a hole for rope. I opened a deer last month and the knife worked fine. The blade lock is strong but not enough for shopping wood by hammering on the blade, on the other hand is this knife not really asking for those kind of tasks... A few tips that I did is: Polish the blade to mirror shine, so much easier to clean. Take an old leather belt and put some polishing creme on and work it, it´s not as much work as you think. Put some oil on the handle and it shines and darkens a bit, AND repells water. I used cocked linseed oil and therpentine 70/30 mix and rubbed it in with 0000-steelwool maby 10 times and let it set for a day between, but that´s me...

Robust Elegance
A great practical folder that is elegant but won't shy away from proper work. A little heavy for suit pants; perfect for jeans. Quality and design is apparent. The folks at EKA know what they are doing
