Scramasax or Seax is a big single-edged knife popular in the Iron Age Europe. Much like the Leuku of Lapland, it doubles up as a tool and defensive implement. A fine name is always nice and the best ones are those with some history behind them.

The Anatomy of a Skrama

Apart from the material and blade thickness, the anniversary blade is similar to the classic Skrama 240. The blade is slightly curved, with a hole at the tip for hanging. The back of the blade is flat, with no saw teeth or whatnot. Full tang construction ends with the bare head of the tang sticking out, with a hole for a wrist strap.

The blade is sharpened to two different angles. Near the grip, a 5 cm (2") portion has an angle of 25° for whittling and fine work. The rest of the blade has an edge of 34°, which has proven to be excellent for this type of chopping blade.

X50CrMoV15 stainless steel blade

The blade is made from a high-quality stainless steel known as X50cr MoV 15 (W.1.4416). This is a so-called martensitic stainless steel that has a lot of chromium, which gives its exceptional tensile strength and abrasion resistance. It is commonly used in various tools, especially high-quality German kitchen knives. It isn’t as hard as other high-end stainless steels, which means that the knife won’t retain its edge for extended periods. At the same time it isn’t as brittle, so it can withstand very tough use. And it is a lot easier to sharpen than many other stainless steels.

The blade has the engraved anniversary logo and numbering.

Pretty curly birch handle

Instead of the synthetic handle, the anniversary model has a stylish oiled curly birch handle. Many people have wished for a wooden handled Skrama, so here you have one for at least a short while.

The handle is designed for a "one-and-a-half" hand grip. The back end gives a good, solid grip for tough chopping action, giving the blows more power, as a bush knife this is what the Skrama is designed for. The upper third of the grip is shaped to give you a good feel for detailed work, such as making firestarters. This is, however, not a miniature model maker’s scalpel and not intended as one, but as any self-respecting Finnish blade. The knife is rather well balanced, so the heavy blade doesn't cause problems when whittling.

Red leather sheath included

With the 20th Anniversary Edition, you get a stylish "Varusteleka red" leather sheath.

  • 2 mm (0.0781) thick and strong vegetable tanned Finnish cow leather. All seams reinforced with sturdy rivets.
  • Inside you’ll find the Skrama plastic blade cover.
  • 60 mm (2.4") wide belt loop, fits just about any belt you can find, even those extra-wide military types.
  • D-ring swiveled belt loop lets the knife turn on your belt, keeping it from getting in the way.
  • Snug fitting press-stud strap secured the knife properly in its place.
  • A grommet for a leg tie at the tip.
  • Drain hole at the bottom.

Sustainable leather

The leather of Terävä sheaths comes from Pelo Leather, a family-owned Central Ostrobothnian tannery founded in 1897. In addition to producing top-quality sheath and Nappa leathers with a minimized waste of materials and emissions, they are respectful towards the source of the raw materials: the animals as well as the nature in which they live.

Pelo Leather uses moose and yak hides provided by hunters and nomads, and only cowhides that are a side-product of the milk and meat industries. The cow hides come from local abattoirs that have standards for ensuring the wellbeing of the animals. No animals are reared for the purpose of producing these leathers.

Their business quarter is 25 years and a lot of effort is put into the processes and logistics of the business, to provide a cleaner environment for future generations. We tip our hats at them and are proud to have their leather in our sheaths!

Varusteleka Terävä

All Terävä knives and leather sheaths are manufactured by Laurin Metalli, a family business and Finland's leading knife blade manufacturer from Kauhava with roots going back to 1918. The Boltaron sheaths are made by Savotta in Karstula, Finland. Founded in 1955, Savotta is known for its simplistic and extremely rugged, Nordic designs. The Kydex sheaths are made by C&G Holsters, USA. A Terävä blade is Finnish craftsmanship, pure and simple! And "Terävä", that's just Finnish for "sharp".

I am very curious why they chose 4116 steel especially with it being priced 350e. In my opinion 4116 is not premium steel at all so its odd this thing is so expensive.
