Camacho Knives #8 - "Harpoon K-Tip Wa Gyuto Japanese Chef Knife"
So loved was Baldur that his mother, the goddess Frigg, extracted an oath from every object on Earth not to harm her son. All agreed that they would never hurt or assist in hurting Baldur. Afterwards, the other gods took advantage of his seeming invincibility to practice throwing knives and shooting arrows at him. The trickster Loki took on a disguise and asked Frigg if there was anything that could harm Baldur, to which she admitted she had missed one thing which she thought too insignificant, the weed mistletoe. Loki immediately left to gather some of the weed and fashioned a dart out of it which he tricked Baldur's blind brother Höðr into throwing it at Baldur. Not knowing what was in his hand and having the assistance of Loki's aim, he launched the dart into Baldur's chest killing him on the spot. This knife has been dubbed "Mistelteinn" (Misteltoe).
This knife features another unorthodox and extremely unique profile and grind. Based off a standard k-tip gyuto chef knife but with an added "harpoon" styled clip this lightweight laser makes for an aggressive and innovative knife. The swedged harpoon k-tip paired with the right hand compound 14" diameter hollow grind can be used as a food scraper/scooper while also aiding in food release. The handle is a perfect blend of modern and ancient materials featuring a large carbon fiber bolster, nickel silver accent spacer, and stabilized Ancient Bog Oak which was carbon dated to 7500 years old.
