Alden is a mid-size knife with a secure grip for daily tasks. Named after the dramatic and historic island Alden. A landmark with historic value and still used by fishermen and travelers finding their way back from the big ocean since thousands of years. Alden is a mid-size all-round knife with a classic design. Shaped for medium to large hands. Its well-shaped curly birch handle is polished to a satin finish with a distinct fingerguard and stainless-steel bolster towards the blade. The midsize long blade has a slight drop point shape and the steel used in this knife is Sandvik 12C27 with a classic scandi grind. A perfect steel for its toughness and corrosion resistance, well suited for outdoor activities near the ocean.
