Otter! This is the first impression for some, when they hear the word Kalan. This knife is not only an original, it has a speaking name too. The sea otter or Kalan is a robust but elegant animal. Similar features can be found with our knife. It's a bit broad, comparing to our other knives, but it shows an elegant and floating form. Thanks to its slight curve it fits perfectly in the hand.
The handles are made of bog oak. Bolsters and rivets are made of bronce which creates an elegant appearance. The handle has a hole for adding a leather strap.
The used blade steels are carbon steels, C100 and 75Ni4.
