"Norden" is Old Norse for "The North". The North is synonymous with long, brutal winters, rough terrain, and a hunting and gathering lifestyle. Norden believes that these hard conditions breed hardened people that need gear that can withstand any condition. CANIS chose to partner with Norden for our "Special Edition" knives because of their commitment to high-quality blades and the fact they are 100% manufactured in the USA and hand-finished in Montana. The Ascent is the ultimate carry knife for any outdoorsman. It's made with a lightweight, CPM-3V steel blade, Micarta handle, Kydex sheath, and topped off with a laser-etched CANIS wolf logo. If you need to take just one knife on your journey, the Ascent is the one for you.
