Paracord, 15 m
Originally soldiers had to snatch their paracord from used parachutes. Being just the right size for general purpose use and fairly strong too, paracord has since become the de facto universal cord for US military and many others.
Wästikivi Eräkivi whetstone
A rough translation of "Eräkivi" would be "wilderness stone", and that's exactly what this is - sized for easy carry, this little buddy is always ready to keep your blades in shape out in the wilderness. 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. Naturally due to the natural nature of the stone these don't follow any man made grit values, but that doesn't really matter since each and every Wästikivi will surely keep your blade sharp!
Terävä Skrama, stainless steel
The stainless steel version of the Skrama, designed for those who work under constantly wet and humid conditions. The Skrama is a versatile heavy duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters, chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.

The steel and heat treatment
80CrV2 carbon steel is used in all our carbon steel knives. The thing is that it´s nothing special really, just really good tool steel that can take basically any beating and offers great edge retention.
The heat treatment we use leaves the surface of the steel softer than the inside. This actually functions a lot like fancy differential heat treatments making these knives very tough. As the surface is softer, any microscopic fractures or unevennesses in the steel will not cause problems like they would if the steel was hardened all the way through. The end result is virtually zero problems caused by material defects!
The heat treatment and softer surface is also why we have added the bevels to the spine, a simple polished spine was not enough for use with ferro rods but with these little bevels that bare the inner, harder steel we get a spine that strikes ferro rods real well!
Terävä, which means sharp in Finnish, is Varusteleka´s own brand of knives. All Terävä knives are high quality Finnish made pieces, designed and made in Finland. The driving idea is to make proper no bullshit use tools, every detail has a real function and you are never paying extra for any silly-willy decorations or other nonsense.
