No fancy bullshit, the Jääkäripuukko is simply a proper no-nonsense utility knife. Quality carbon steel, traditional Finnish puukko blade profile with a slight drop point. The Jääkäripuukko is not designed to sit on a shelf for decoration, this is a honest tool made for hard work. Stainless version.

Leather sheaths sold separately! The sheatless puukko's are shipped with a simple cardboard blade cover.

Short or long? The choice is easy, if you have at least some idea about what you´re going to use it for. The shorter Jääkäri 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 larger Jääkäri 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. The thickness of 4 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.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel is far more care free than carbon steel, this version of the Jääkäripuukko was made to meet the needs of all those who work on the water or under such conditions where you simply cannot keep your blade from getting wet.

Stainless steel is not ultimately "better" than carbon, most people find it somewhat harder to sharpen and often a bit more prone to deformation in comparison to carbon steel. Carbon steel is pretty much the best choice for most users, but when you really need the added benefits of stainless steel this is the knife for you.

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

Sold separately, click here to buy!

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

All Terävä knives are manufactured in Kauhava, Finland, by our partners at Laurin Metalli, Finlands leading knife blade manufacturer with roots going back to 1918. A Terävä blade is Finnish craftsmanship, pure and simple! And "Terävä", that's just Finnish for "sharp".

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!

Very impressed with the rugged quality and design of this knife. Came sharp and after a few moments stropping it was shaving sharp. Great to see a quality knife at such a reasonable price. Great people to deal with, rapid delivery to Scotland.

Jolly fine knife. Back is good for use with a firesteel and for making 'firefluff' (you know those tiny fluffy scrapings from the corner of the tinder stick) when you need to get a fire going and you have no other fire starter. This has the utility of the best bushcraft knives, with the added abilities of a military knife. Soldierproof construction means it can take all the punishment you can give it. Well done Stefan M.

I'll simply echo what everyone else is saying, these knives are amazing value no bullshit blades.
The handles feel good, the sheaths are well made and both of mine arrived razor sharp.
It's half the price of a Mora Garberg and (for the stainless) is made with a very slightly cheaper steel.
They have carved many stakes, feathered many sticks, batoned many logs and struck many fire steels without breaking a sweat.

Buy the short one or the long one.
Buy it in Carbon or Stainless, but frigging buy one as you aren't going to find better without jumping to the "Super steel" price bracket.
