A very simple and rugged military knife from Finland. No Rambo/"survival" stuff here - this is meant for real use.
The Sissipuukko (best translation would probably be "Ranger knife") is familiar to most Finns who've been through national service, where these see widespread use as personal purchases, mostly by NCO's and such. Unlike most military knives, this is actually fairly useful for other things beside stabbing your fellow man. We can say from experience for anything else than elaborate miniature wood carvings, the Sissipuukko will suffice.
The knife is made of HRC58 carbon steel with a teflon coating, with a very sturdy, hard rubber handle. As the blade is not serrated and very simple in design, it is easy to sharpen and keeps an edge surprisingly well, depending, of course, on how you use it.
We have two models in stock:
The sheath is one of the best features of this knife: it is very durable and can be carried any way you want without danger of the utensil, as it were, falling out. The knife is secured with a rubber roller, which means you'll have to give a little yank to get the knife out - it won't fall off on its own. There are two sheath models available: leather and plastic. Here are the differences:
We got both lengths with the leather sheath, but only the longer model with plastic sheath. However, the shorter knife will fit into the plastic sheath.
The model is designed by J-P Peltonen, and the knives are made in cooperation with Fiskars. These are manufactured in Finland, so you can rely on the quality - these are held in high regard by just about everybody who knows something about knives.
Warning! Before buying, please make sure that these are legal to import to your country! We take no responsibility if the customs officer confiscates your precious bayonet/knife/machete! These are perfectly legal in Finland and that is all we are interested in.
