During my last few foreign trips, I've had the good fortune of purchasing a locally-made knife as a souvenir. That would be a ceremonial dagger from Toledo Spain last year and an Icelandic Hunting knife this time around from Johann. It's a beauty.
I also got to see his very busy workshop and physically hold some of his other hand-crafted blades and rifles. It was fun and educational to have him explain his craft. He even picked me up at the Hotel and them dropped me back off, whilst driving his well-maintained vintage Cadillac. This interaction and the knife (which traveled well within my checked luggage) was a key highlight during my stay in Reykjavik.Recommended for:
