Another puukko! Built this thing out of 80crv2, curly birch that's been dyed and soaked, some birch bark from the saint , and a drifted brass bolster. Go to straya lil buddy, have fun.

Leuku pants, just tall enough to grab and pull the pommel with gloved hands. Sami knives are so smart.

I'd like to think that a grandad is gonna hand this thing to a grandson some day. My take on a loveless style, no mill, no metal cutting bandsaw, and shit files. Renaming Wanta forge to Cro-Magnon forge, I guess I have been using an elk antler base as as a hammer recently. Materials are 80crv2, poplar burl, and brass.

It's a tradition of the puukko that a knife can be built by the average Joe. The blade was often forged by a local blacksmith and the fella with Just a few hand tools, some sandpaper and a little imagination could build a knife for them self. Combine that with the use local materials and a personally made puukko becomes a powerful reflection of the person who made it. A good blade and a little wit is worth a thousand shitty knives.

Somethin bitchin' for the kitchen. This is 80crv2, hand forged super thin and some juniper I pulled out of the fire wood pile. Thank Selassi my wife always puts aside the figured pieces.

A little puukko built from some scraps around the yard- leaf spring blade, gamble oak handle, and some pithy elk antler. This was shot at the fort built by my wife’s great great grandfather built in the 1800’s in the desert of southern Utah. knife

The Puukko is a Finnish handtool. It’s traditions are great, and extensive. It’s somewhere between a beater and the most beautiful thing you have. Meant for forest living and all that goes with it. It’s a carpenters friend, a hunting companion, and a bush living enabler. The handle is made traditionally of birch, which forms incredible grain structure because of the extreme conditions of light, temperature variance, and organic richness of the boreal forest. The blade is traditionally forged, and if often in a rhomboid section; something that would look like a diamond if cut down the middle. It’s bevels are thin, and cut aggressively and cleanly. The shape is meant to be simple, to be held in all positions and to be used without hotspots or blisters. And finally it is traditionally stick tang. Metal has always been a precious commodity in Scandinavia, so full tangs were mostly out for these every day tools.
