Size 120 x 30 x 10 mm. Made from natural Finnish phyllite, the same stuff that our ancestors used since they first invented a knife that needed maintenance.

No fancy bullshit, the Jääkäri is a proper no-nonsense puukko knife for real use, not for sitting on a shelf for decoration. Fine quality carbon steel, traditional Finnish puukko blade profile with a slight drop point and a practical grind guarantee a razor sharp knife straight out of the box, and it's easy to maintain too.

The Jääkäri (the name derives from the backbone infantry of the Finnish military) is nothing fancier than a very simple, very practical puukko knife. The Jääkäri is a buddy you can trust to get the job done and you don´t need to be too careful either, these are built for use.

General features

  • Medium size general purpose utility knife, a solid choice for most situations.
  • Traditional puukko-style blade profile with drop point.
  • Scandi-style grind with secondary microbevel.
  • Spine ground and beveled to strike sparks from ferro rods.
  • Full/stick hybrid tang with textured overmolded rubber grip.
  • Protruding bare tang head with lanyard hole.

Technical specs

  • Weight: 175/190 g (wo/ sheath)
  • Total length: 240/270 mm
  • Blade length: 110/140 mm
  • Blade thickness: 4,20 mm
  • Edge angle: 23°
  • Steel: 80CrV2 carbon steel, 59 HRC

Available with leather sheath or a simple plastic liner. The plastic liner is not a stand-alone sheath and offers no actual retention, it is used as an insert in the construction of leather sheaths.

Short or long? The choice is easy, if you have at least some idea about what you´re going to use it for. The 110 (shorter) is an excellent all-round knife for just about any tasks, it's best paired up with something bigger such as an axe or the Skrama. The 140 (longer) might be a bit "clumsier" but on the other hand the long blade make it a bit better at chopping through saplings and firewood. But it all boils down to personal preference, the one that feels best is the one for you!

Blade

Traditional and proven functional Finnish puukko profile with a drop point. The thickness of 4,2 mm makes this a bit more robust than most old timey traditional Finnish puukkos. The grind is a scandi grind with a tiny secondary bevel, currently the most commonly used Finnish puukko grind.

The strong blade can take a beating, you can use the Jääkäri for batoning without problem, just don´t hit your fingers or the rubber handle, those are not strong like steel.

The heat treatment leaves the surface of the steel soft, which makes the blade very strong but also means that a simple polished spine will not strike sparks from a ferro rod. We have added small bevels to the spine, these bring out the harder core of the blade to strike sparks from ferro rods. Since this isn´t your common 90° spine it works a bit differently, but once you find the right style it will strike sparks just like any other blade.

Carbon steel requires care: if your knife gets wet in the bush, dry it the best you can. Never store the knife without drying and oiling the blade.

Grip

The rubber grip is somewhat ergonomically shaped, but not one of those crazy finger groove things. A small finger guard on the front, a little belly in the middle and a knob at the back to keep your hand from slipping and also make it possible to use a Leuku style chopping grip.

The tang runs all the way through the grip and comes out the back, forming a little knob with a hole in it for lanyards and such. The knob can also be used to hit things, naturally.

Leather sheath

The sturdy dangler leather sheath is builtwith a roomy plastic liner, traditional Finnish sheath construction style. The liner is roomy enough for water and crud to run through it and out the hole at the end. Around the mouth of the sheath the leather is folded double forming a strong and stiff wide band, this band is closed tightly around the grip using a press stud. When you pull out the knife the edge runs nicely between the two leather sides, not cutting it up as is a common downside of the traditional "sock" style puukko sheaths. Even without closing the press stud the sheath retains enough tension to keep the puukko in place, so around camp you don´t need to be opening and closing the sheath all the time, just remember to snap it shut when you're on the move!

Do not force the knife out of the sheath without opening the press stud! Although this can be done it is not good for the press stud in the long run and may damage it. Just open the snap before pulling out the knife.

It's best to oil the snap fastener once in a while to prevent it from becoming stiff and nasty.

Varusteleka Terävä

Terävä, which means sharp in Finnish, is our own brand of knives. All Terävä knives are high quality Finnish made pieces, designed and made in Finland.

A few words from the designer

The basic idea for the Jääkäri was very simple: to make a functional knife with all the pros and none of the cons of a traditional Finnish puukko. A traditional puukko is fine, but the rat tail tang, wooden grips and floppy sheaths are not exactly the most practical designs anymore. So we made the blade strong, 4 mm thick, and with a full tang that goes all the way through the grip. The handle is shaped for a good grip and made from rubber.

The basic leather sheath is nothing like it's wildly swinging ancestors, this one is made with a sturdy turning belt loop and a press stud to secure the knife in place.

This is not rocket science really, but just a simple good puukko for real use. Nothing fancy, works like a charm!

Vajaa puolet vuoden varusmiespalveluksesta Jääkäripuukko on killunut tetsarissa ja puukko itse ei ole antanut tuumaakaan periksi. Terä on kokenut uskomatonta rääkkiä, kuten oksaisia, hiekkaisia tervaskantoja ja toiminut ruuvimeisselinäkin hädän sattuessa. Kaikesta on kuitenkin selvitty kevyellä hiomakiven käytöllä. Pahin vastus oli kuitenkin pizza, josta jäi terään laikukasta jälkeä, ei meinaa millään lähteä pois. Täytynee ajan salliessa korrolilla tms. kokeilla. Käyttöä ei laikut kuitenkaan haittaa.

Tuppi kuitenkin antaa tuuman tai kaksi periksi. Talven kuolonpakkasilla ryynäyksen jälkeen huomasin että mustaa väriä irtoaa (?) noin peukalonpään kokoisina laikkuina. Tod.näk. osunut johonkin syöksyessä tms. Myös neppari on löystynyt hieman käytössä, kuitenkaan ei huolestuttavasti, ainakaan ihan vielä.

Kaikenkaikkiaan hyvä no-bullshit puukko, tehty käyttöä varten ja käytön se kestää. Puukosta 5/5 tähteä, tupesta 3/5, keskiarvo 4/5.

This knife has the potential to be the best allround bushcraft knife. The only fault is that the sides are not grinded. The consequense is that the angle between the grinded top of the knife, and the sides are not sharp enough to use on fire steel. I am doing it manually.

OK first off, nothing fancy about this knife as stated in the description. A little rough grind on the main blade bevel - And overall its a bit "rough" looking knife ! But that doesn't bother me at all, it looks like a knife that want to be used. The handle is superb, better than most 100€+ knives, and the blade comes razor sharp, seriously! - sharper than no other knife I've had before, you could easily shave with this blade.
And for the leather sheath, that itself is worth the 60€ - All in all you get a hell of a lot of knife for this little money !

I love it. Sharp as hell, solid, and rough.
I have the 14 cm one, and I can comfortably cut any wood I need (except too thick fuel), as well as do other works that might need more sharp.

I'm just happy with it.

Excellent knife.
It is a practical, no-nonsense, sturdy, though knife and I love it for those features, but wait, there is more!
The balance and the grip are good, the angle on the spine is enough to use a magnesium rod with, and it comes very sharp, sharp enough to shave the hairs of my arm, hell you can probably shave with it. Better than the moras and co. that go for more than 200 €. No really, this is better made, thicker, sharper, more comfortable and overall more balanced.

Also, aesthetically, these look like they can take a beating and come around for more, the look and feel of it just begs you to use it for every task and not stored and treated like a museum piece. It is the kind of knife that eats tacks and shits barbed wire.

I love my 140. It arrived razor sharp and in perfect condition. The thing that I love the most is the heft in the hand, it's 4mm thick!! It gives the knife a reassuring feel that it can take whatever abuse you can throw at it. The point on my knife wasn't a perfect symmetrical grind but I don't see that being an issue. I could only get the knife without the sheath (sold out) but curiously my mora companion sheath fits the knife quite well and will serve as a temporary home for the blade. So to sum up- if you want a great knife for a ridiculously low price then look no further than the 140 or 110.

Just arrived. It surpasses my expectations. Did some light cutting and carving. Can't wait to do further testing.
Took it camping, batoned, feathered, and carved like a champ.
However when I got home and tried to sharpen it up I discovered the grind and secondary bevel are a little uneven and made sharpening the sweep of the blade difficult.

WOW, I am very impressed with this knife. The handle feels so good in my hand, I thought it may feel bigger than I wanted but no, it feels great and the sheath is much more than expected. Good quality leather, good quality workmanship.
A great price for an even greater knife.
Can't beat this knife and I own quite a few different knives, some more expensive but this one will be my "Go To" knife, and Thanks for making it available in the USA.

Excellent value for money.
This is a proper bush-tool, not a fancy pants drawer queen.
Solid design, good allround size, comfy grip.
Whoever sharpens these knives knows what they're doing.
The sheath is of good quality, but could use a waxing out of the box.
I'm very satisfied.

Received mine a couple of days ago. Excellent tool, just like it's smaller sister the 110.
The only drawback I have found is the grind on the back of the blade. Almost useless with fire-steels (tried it with Mora, Light my Fire and Highlander). However, if you turn the knife upside down, with the blade facing you, it's like a dragon!! maybe a bit dangerous but it gets the job done.
Anyway, a very happy customer once again :)

Excellent knife, I bought it without sheath (at that moment it was only option available), and I'm satisfied with it 100%. I made sheaths myself- one kydex (with three type mounting option) and one leather almost the same as original and I'm so happy with it! If you need a knife like this, do not think - buy it immediately!

Be careful! These things are surgically sharp. Probably the best camping, bush-crafting, hunting/survival and even tactical knife at this price and one the best overall that I have ever held or seen out of the box. I have not had a chance to use it a lot yet but I have no doubt it will do everything well. Appears to be quality high carbon steel and easy to sharpen.

Received the knife today. Overall, for the money I think it is a good buy. The sheath is nice However, there are a few things I do not like. First, mine is not 140 mm (5.5 inches) . Mine is 134.62 mm (5.3 inches). Secondly, it did not arrive as sharp as most knives I have ordered. I can fix that tho. I can't fix the length. Thirdly, the forge marks do not completely cover the top half of the blade where it was intended. There are polished spots where it should be a forged finish. If you are going to leave that finish on it, it should be uniform where it is intended 5th, there was a slight ding in the edge near the handle. Lastly, the plunge lines are uneven. I know this blade is intended to be a hard user but fit and finish should be better, even st this price. Sounds as if most of the other reviewers received a better finished knife than I did.

I just got the knife, not the sheath. Giving it 4 out of 5 only because it only has the option for a right handed sheath. wish they had left handed sheaths....

I am a knife nut from Canada and have a good grasp of the knife market, and if you want the absolute best outdoors knife for under $100 this is it. Just look here and youtube, just do a google search, this knife is raved about by everyone who has one including experts who have handled hundreds of knives. Rest assured you will get a great tool that you can hand down to the grandkids.
Why is it so great? First, they use a great carbon steel at a respectable hardness. Easy to get a crazy sharp edge and holds that edge plus its a very tough steel. ESEE knives have a great rep for their blades but I would take this over their 1095 because its harder and just as tough. Secondly the grind is a scandi(with a tiny microbevel) .This makes for a great carving woods blade that is also great at busting wood apart. Easy to sharpen too. Third, its full tang construction yields a brutal tough knife that can take abuse. Four, The handle is simple which is just what you want with no hot spots while being graet to hold in the cold due to the full wrap design of the insulative and shock absorbing rubber like material. I already had a knife with a similar handle material(Scrapyard SYKCO_) the stuff is awesome durable stuff. Lastly, the sheath is the best stock sheath I have ever had. Smart design with nice leather. It sits firmly in the sheath without the snap but with it the blade is super secure. Looks nice too.
So why not a perfect 5/5? I dinged half a star because the grind was not "perfect". The brind on mine was slightly assymetric. Does nothing to affect the function, just an aesthetic imperfection but only perfection gets my 5 stars, this is as close as it gets and should not dissuade anyone and is certainly reasonable for the price.
I already had a Spyderco Bushcraft when I first heard about these. The Spyderco is literally perfect but I like this just as much because its not pretty but a purely utilitarian tool that I don't feel bad about beating on. This model also came in 140mm which just fit between others in my small collection which lends it self to other duties like battoning justifying the purchase.
Honestly, I doubt there is any knife under even $200 that I would choose over this.

Pros:
It comes shaving sharp out of the box.
The grind is very clean (unlike the Skrama)
Digs into wood like butter.
Thick 90 degree spine for striking a ferro rod
Made of the best steel for the money that I know of
Holds an edge very well
Cons
The handle material isn't my favorite, but I understand why it is looking at the price

A look at the handle: (Just throwing information out to give you a better idea and what to expect)
The handle material feels like the high friction side of a mouse pad, but it's not as squishy as it looks in the picture, but it's not a hard plastic, I can barely make a mark on it with my finger nail.
Ergonomics are really good for large size hands. For my medium-large size hands, the palm swell fills my hand just about perfectly (erroring on the bigger side) Overall, my favorite companion knife that I expect to out live me.

If you don't have one better get one! This is my # 1 go to knife right now. And for the price it's a no brained. It's a freakin beast . Nothing can stop it. It's pretty evident by the people on you tube everyone picks this knife over anything on the market. It's a no miss knife. Once you get it in hand you cant put it down. Like the Finns say it's a no bull shit knife! The blade is sharp as shit right out of th box. So be careful because this thing will cut you in a heart beat. You can't go wrong with shipping it's only 9.99 this is sometimes cheaper than what we have in our own country. I got mine in 13 days from the day I ordered it . That's not bad at all now. Now that I have mine there's no way I would trade or sell it. Bar none it's the best knife I own. Thank you Varusteleka for sending me mine.

Simple, tough as nails and very nimble in the hand. The truth is that I didn't love it when I got it but after putting it through it's paces over the summer I now have huge respect for it as a well made, well designed and very functional blade.

So I got one of the 140's before going on my last cycle tour and used it for the following 3 months for my daily firewood tasks, chopping branches, carving feather sticks, making tent pegs, hammering in those tent pegs, even a little prying and a lot of food preparation. It handled all tasks really well and excelled at light chopping and batoning, it carves a nice feather stick as well. The knife is light in the paw, well balanced and very precise owing to it's long thin profile. The handle is also very comfortable...better than most other knives I own or have tried. The steel is a favorite of mine, it's easy to sharpen and holds a good edge. The knife also has a great sheath (Note: I found the knife rattled in the sheath when I bought it and I didn't care for that at all, so I cut a small 25mmx25mmx10mm piece of kitchen sponge and shoved it into the bottom of the sheath to hold the knife tip when it was in the sheath, problem solved).

This is an excellent all-round survival type knife, I would easily rank it among the three best I own (Fallknivan F1, Peltonen M07 being the other two) and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a slightly longer bush/wilderness knife.

I got first the knife and now the sheath. Both represent extreme value. Very comfy grip and the sheath is really nice. It will laugh in the face of a Garberg!

I decided to get this knife after doing some wood-chopping with my Mora this summer. It worked fine, but I felt that I was pushing it close to it's limits. I now have a much sturdier blade to work with!

Mine was not shaving sharp on delivery, but a few passes on the strop took care of that.

Sorry I do not speak Finnish. My 140 carbon arrived today. Razor sharp straight out of the box and the back strikes a firesteel really well. I was expecting something a bit rougher having read the reviews but mine is very well finnished (if you'll excuse the pun). A really good knife from a really good maker.
A friend of mine speaks Finnish so I asked him to translate the message I have written above for any Finnish people who do not speak English. He said it was "Pidän todella vaimollesi ja kun et ole kotona, näytän hänelle hyvää aikaa". He kept laughing as he said it. He said the Finnish language makes him do that.....

Quality control issues???

I ordered a Jääkäripuukko 110 and a JP 140 last month. Both knives arrived in perfect condition and are a great value for the price. I just love those knives! Due to that very positive experience I ordered three more 110s, three more 140s and a Skrama after they were available again 1-2 weeks ago. This time I'm not so happy with the knives. The Skrama is flawless, I really like it. But only three out of the six Jääkäripuukkos are of the same good quality as the Skrama and the first two knives I received last month.

One of the 110s has a flawed grind on one side around the belly. The angle was off and there was no micro bevel at all which resulted in a dull belly area. I will have to reprofile at least the whole belly to fix this.
Two out of the three 140s are even worse. The "micro" bevel near the handle is everything but "micro". Over a length of around 1'' it is a huge secondary bevel on one side of the blade (and the usual micro bevel on the opposite side) which results in completely different edge angles on both sides of the blade. The result is a completely dull blade on the most important part of the knife for fine work. Due to the geometry of that grinding error I would have to remove a lot of metal and completely reprofile the blade to a new zero-Scandi before applying a new micro bevel.

I know you're selling a lot of those knives at the moment and your supplier is very busy to keep up with production. But that should not result in 50% of the knives having faulty grinds like in my case. Please make sure the quality control is improved to prevent such problems in future batches.

Update / edit:
Varusteleka contacted me after this review although I did not file a replacement / refund. They offered me to send three new knives for those with a faulty grind. This shows me they really care for their products. One more reason to recommend your products to other people. Thank you for the very kind offer (as I did not ask for a replacement).
I would change my rating from 3/5 stars to 5/5 stars if I could edit the rating too.
Keep up the good work!
