    Muonionlalusta Meteorite Folding Pocket Knife
    Muonionalusta - Iron fine octahedrite - (IVA)
    Northern Sweden - (67° 48'N, 23° 6'E)

    Here the Muonionalusta Meteorite has been utilized to create a one-of-a-kind pocketknife by Böker. The handle was crafted out of the famed Swedish Meteorite and features the mesmerizing Widmanstätten pattern prized by collectors. The blade and bolster were forged out of Damascus steel to closely resemble the Widmanstätten patterning of the aesthetic modern tool made from truly ancient material. The piece measures 3.14 inches (8 cm) when closed and 5.5 inches (14 cm) when opened. The "Magnum" blade measures 2.3 inches (6 cm). This pocketknife is in good condition and is the perfect size to fit in a pocket, but it really should be on display.
    Overall Measurements: 5.5 x 0.79 x 0.39 inches (14 x 2.00 x 1.00 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
