Wästikivi Eräkivi whetstone

Wästikivi Eräkivi whetstone

11.99 USD

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!

Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker

Spyderco Triangle Sharpmaker

85.99 USD

A great easy to use ceramic sharpener kit. A dull knife is no good, the Triangle Sharpmaker makes keeping an edge real easy even if traditional whetstones seem hard to use. Packs neatly into handy little carry box.

Terävä Jääkäripuukko, carbon steel

Terävä Jääkäripuukko, carbon steel

54.99 USD

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 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.

Skrama - as in Scramasax or Seax, a short, single edged sword popular in the Middle Ages. Much like the Scandinavian Leuku it doubles up as a tool and weapon. A fine name is always nice and the best ones are those with some history behind them - our 21st century Skrama would surely meet the demands of any Saxon man from "ye good olde days".

  • Total length: 430 mm.
  • Weight: 525 g (knife only).
  • Blade: length 240 mm, width 46 mm, thickness 4,2 mm.
  • Edge: 34° for chopping, 25° at the base for finer work.
  • Steel: Carbon steel 80CrV2, 59 HRC
  • Grip: Moulded rubber, rough texture for a good grip.

Available with leather sheath or a simple plastic liner. The plastic liner is not a sheath, it is a simple blade cover that keeps the knife in place with friction. The plastic liner can be used for carrying the Skrama packed inside a rucksack or in the trunk of your car. The same plastic liner is also used in the construction of our own leather sheaths.

Blade

The blade is slightly curved, with a hole in the tip for hanging. The back of the blade is flat, no saw teeth or whatnot, perfect to beat a piece of wood against when cleaving another. Full tang construction, ends with the bare head of the tang sticking out, with a hole for a wrist strap. The blade may have some small rust stains on the base of the handle due to the manufacturing process. These are harmless, and easy to remove.

The blade is sharpened to two different angles. Near the grip a 5 cm 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.

Since people keep asking: the hole in the blade is there for practical production purposes only - it is used to straighten the blades after tempering and during the grinding and sharpening process. Of course you can come up with your own uses for it too, but most importantly it is there for a purpose, not for decoration!

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.

Rubber grip

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 makers scalpel and not intended as one, but as any self respecting Finnish blade it can be used to carve a proper wooden cock, "Leirikyrpä" as it's known in Finnish military lingo. The knife is rather well balanced, so the heavy blade doesn't cause problems when whittling.

Leather sheath

  • 2 mm vegetable tanned cowhide with stitched and riveted construction.
  • Inside the leather sits the sturdy Skrama plastic liner, a thumb knob on the side of the mouth makes unsheathing easy and controlled.
  • 6 cm wide belt loop, fits just about any belt you can find, even those extra wide military types.
  • D-ring belt loop lets the knife turn on your belt keeping it from coming in the way when moving about or sitting.
  • Snug fitting press stud strap secured the knife properly in its place. When brand new the strap may feel "short", just pull on it a bit or wet it with warm water and it will soon get a perfect length and shape!
  • A grommet for a leg tie has been added to the tip.
  • And last but not least the sheath does of course have a drainage hole at the very end.

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.

Please note: Make sure these are okay to import to your country, preferably before making the purchase! We take no responsibility of these matters. These are perfectly legal in Finland and that's all what we care about.

A few words from the designer

My dreams of a proper heavy duty bush chopper started some years ago whilst swinging my Taiter Hukari (another Finnish heavy blade). During my military service, chopping down trees for camouflage, firewood, shelters etc. these dreams turned into concrete ideas. Apart from the brute Hukari nothing like this was available on the Finnish market. When I finally got the chance to make these ideas into a real life knife it was simple, everything was thought out:

The recipe:

  • A long, gently formed handle that would give great hitting power for long swings, this would be the knives primary function.
  • As a secondary function I wanted the handle to also offer a good grip for detailed work.
  • Simple and strong construction, full tang and moulded rubber grip.

After a few drawing we got to work with Laurin Metalli, one of the biggest named in the Finnish puukko and blade industry. Their expertise and experience made for a great collaboration, one of the best jobs for me so far! Really quick the prototypes turned into this, the final product, which is even better than I had dreamt!

Now we'll see how this turns out, buy one, use it and tell us what you think!

Nyt jo n. 10kk myöhemmin voin todeta että erittäin hyvä puukko/kirves/machete yhdistelmä! On pilkottu klappeja pienemmiks, vuoltu kiehisiä, muutama parimetrinen puunalku kaadettua, mahdollisuudet tälle on lukemattomat. Mustalla nahkatupilla aivan ehdot, näyttää aika miehekkäältä farkkujenkin kanssa liikkuessa. Tälle en voi muuta sanoa kuin hiton hyvä!

2 vuotta ollut käytössä. Ollut parilla lapinreissulla, metsätöissä, mökkireissuilla ja kotonakin takan vierustalla on klapeja pienitty. Retkikirveet ja vesurit on voinut unohtaa tämän oston jälkeen. Helvetin hyvä kahva kesät talvet, ei lipeä käsistä. Ahkeralla väärinkäytöllä olen saanut pari lovea terään, mutta nekin on tahkoamalla saatu siliäksi. Vähänkään metsässä kuljeskeleville todella hyödyllinen kapistus, ei mee sormi suuhun vaikka unohtuis se pienempi puukko kotiin.

This is one awesome knife. Chops, carves, the whole nine yards. I can't say enough good about this blade. The quality of the materials and workmanship is outstanding at this price point. I'd give it more that five stars if I could. Hands down one of the best knives I own.

I first wanted a hukari, but this blade replaced it, so I got one from the first batch, hoping. And I still have it. Bought one more stainless steel, with the two sharpened angles on the blade. Still have both after some good outdoor beating and sharpenings.

This has to be the best value blade i have brought ever. If it was twice the price it would still be a bargain.
80crv2 is a premium steel and holds a savage edge for long time. It reminds me of 5160 with edge retention of a powdered steel. Highly highly recommend this superbly well thought out bush knife. Best out there by far..

Ei tarvitse kirvestä tai sahaa tai puukkoa, hoitaa homman jokaisessa tapauksessa. Isokin kaatunut puu on polttopuuta hetken kuluttua, kiehiset saa vuoltua helposti.

Jokaiseen hommaan on erikoistyökalut, mutta Skrama hoitaa nuotten erikoistyökalujen hommat yhdessa paketissa erinomaisesti.

Tämä vehje on jokaisen eräjorman unelma. (Tulevat varusmiehet huomio!)
Tosissaan vuoden nyt tällä lätkitty vaikka mitä poikki ja halki - eikä kyllä loppua näy. Parhaiten Skrama pääsi loistoon asepalveluksessa kun leikki vähän väliä tiedustelutimppaa ja tulenjohtorosvoa. Intin kirveet/hukarit meni aina paskaks metässä joten tämä tuli ostettua - ei muuten enään ollu tekosyytä olla hakematta naveja varten keppejä tai pilkkomatta halkoja yöksi!



Älkää säikkykö hiiliteräksen ruostumistaipumusta. Vaikka monen yön metsässäs paskasateessa tetsatessa terä pääsi ruostumaan kun joutu keskittyä epäolennaisiin sotilastehtäviin - kyllä se ruoste poiskin lähtee ja terä on kuin uusi! (Asehuollon yhteyksessä aina tipottelin myös Skramalle omat öljyt ja loppu se ruostumisongelmakin kun muisti myös kuivata terän käytön jälkeen) Suosittelen aidosti, jos on vähänkään tarvetta niin lyökää rahat tiskiin!
Erään yliluutnantin sanelut: Ettehän työ oppilas tarvitse edes ysivitosta (Rk-95) kun tuolla vehkeellä saa kaikki listittyä?!

This is a great blade. I have bought expensive knives in the past that I have been reluctant to put to heavy use, this thing is a solid chunk of confidence, ready to work. I was not sure about the ability to use it as a chopper and for fine work, I thought the compromise would be too much but it's totally acceptable for both, yes it's a compromise but not as much as you might think.
Stop thinking and buy it. Use it, love it and let it get rusty, use it some more, it loves it. Great steel.

Ok what has not yet been said, to praise this wonder of a tool that the great designer Stefan M (many blessing upon his head) brought to us mere mortals by the grace of the everlasting spring of good quality equipment varusteleka (a thousand praises for each pair of thumbs currently employed under this most venerable enterprise).

Yes most things has already been said so far, but here is my take on it. It might not be a carving knife but with some nimble fingers you can use it as one. It can not cleave as good as an axe but I have battoned throu logs as tall as myself with relative ease, without ever worrying about the blade itself. Easy maintenance scandigrind is the king always has been always will be you can sharpen it in your sleep and still get a good edge and then of course a drop of oil a day keeps the rust away.

In the end, I have used it as a cleaver, machete, carving knife, wood planer, nail puller (the blade hole really comes in handy) crowbar, hammer, and last but not least shot serving tray.

It has performed above and beyond my wildest expectations but being from sweden it is my national duty to claim any and all Mora knifes to be superior, but I have clearly found the exception national pride or not.

This is simply put, the best chopper I have tried, that is good enough for the light stuff, for me to consider it, as the only kife to bring to the woods. My first and second world war pattern khukris for instance, are obviously better choppers, but they are not light enough and lacks the right balance for the lighter work, so if i bring any of those to the woods, I will need a lighter knife for the finer jobs. WIth the hand-and-a-half grip, the knife can be either front heavy for chopping, or nimble for lighter jobs. I would recommend the plastic liner and the MOLLE cheath, as that combination can easily be fastend to or inside the backpack, or attached high on the hip, when the backpack is of. On the hip, that combination is surprisingly comfortable for me, for being such a large knife. With the lower hanging leather cheath, I suspect, that the knife will tend to dangle and interfere with the legs.

Aikani pohdiskelin retkikirveen hommaamista kunnes eteeni avautui varustelekan sivu ja SKRAMA. Prkl että on toimiva kapistus. Vuoleminen onnistuu, polttopuut halkoo, leikkaa evästomaatit kirurgin tarkkuudella, näyttää hyvältä ja tuntuu hyvältä kädessä (kun pitää kahvasta kiinni, terää en ole iskenyt vielä käteen). Mutta ehdottomasti suositeltava hankinta eräretkille mukaan kaikille. Itsellä aina mukana metsässä....

Upon receiving/using this knife i can safely say - it is more versatile, more ergonomically made using (imho) better steel, funnier to use, better balanced than esee, ka-bar, tops, cold steel and some other choppers of similar size. The only knife that gave me the same amount of pleasure when used was dpx 12 chop(400+€). But skrama performes better in terms of chopping accuracy, giving you 100% control over whole lenght of the blade. Handle material as my primary concern turned out to be of an excellent quality providing perfect grip and strong enough to stay unmarked after missed blows while battoning. Strangely the shape of the blade's tip provided a good stabbing penetration without much force applied. The only thing I haven't fully appreciated was the variation in grind bevel which proved to b irrelevant once the knife was touched up with wetstone.
Coming up next - over one month of field testing in Africa , if won't b pinched during airline transfer:)

Owned mine for a good while now and used it a lot. Its my favourite bit of kit for wild camping. No modern fancy pants bollocks, just pure efficiency. A modern take on a very successful time proven tool. Great value, top quality steel and very well thought out design for a fantastic price. Does everything it says on the tin. Reviews elsewhere on the web may convince you if I haven't.

If you want to feel like a cyborg and/or experience perfection, this knife is so perfectly balanced for its purpose that you will feel like something equivalent to Edward Scissorhands, but with a knife instead. It's not equipped with cool shit like saw blades and titanium tanto killer edges, it just works perfectly for light to medium fieldwork. And pretty good for heavier stuff as well, sometimes with assistance from a baton (club etc.)

It's impressively not impressive, it just is the tool I always to reach for when I need to do something above the pay grade of my knife.

A tool that consistently performs above expectations. Many reviews singing it's praise, so rather than just parrot what has been said, I'll limit my observations to one aspect that isn't often discussed in depth, and that is balance. What makes this tool shine is how it can feel like two entirely different blades, depending on whether you use the forward or rearward grip. Holding from the rear, the blade is very forward weighted, and feels purposeful like a large chopper/survival knife such an RTAK II, Becker Bk9, Junglas, etc. and this forward weighting gives it serious chopping power. But the forward grip places the balance point right at your front finger, which makes the blade suddenly feel very light, lively and nimble. Vastly different feel with the illusion it is somehow lighter. I carry mine in the basic scabbard under the lacing on the side of my Italian Alpini pack, with Ranger Bands (cut from bicycle inner tube) for the lacing to run under and hold it securely. The lack of bling and candy plus the low cost makes this tool a real sleeper, but it's a true game changer against other one tool offerings and large choppers, and for me is the only multi-grip handle knife that got it right. I have also found the 80crv2 steel to be much more corrosion resistant than O1, 1095, 5160, and A2. Possibly close to D2. Very easy to care for. I will be buying more for my jeep emergency kit, and gifts. Well done, and thank you Stefan!

Ilmeisen suosittu, koska jatkuvasti loppu -enkä ihmettele, paras käyttämäni voimaleuku. Kuvaavaa on, että Etelä-Afrikassa kaveri, joka jotuu aika usein käymään pusikoiden kimppuun töissään, ihastui puukkoon niin, että vaati saada ostaa sen, vaikka sikäläiseen tulotasoon tuo on suunnilleen samaa tasoa kuin JT Pälikön puukot meille (ne käännetyt ja kaulitut mallit). Annoin Sraman tuolle reippaalle kaverille ja ostin uuden heti kun palasin kotiin.

Tämä on suunniteltu oikeasti liioittelematta ja kaksoisteroitus on nerokas, sillä tästä on saatu loistopuukko päivä- ja viikonloppuretkeilyyn, sekä pilkkominen, että vuolu onnistuvat mainiosti. Pitkä kahva on huippu. Tämä on tosi mainio kaveri risukeittimelle, silloin kun käytettävät puut ovat pienikokoisia.

Minusta on kuitenkin ontuvaa ajatella tämän korvaavan kirveen. Polttopuiden tekemisessä pienikin kirves voittaa skraman. Tottumattomalle katkaisu on Skramalla helpompaa, mutta Skramalla jo reilun 10 sentin puun halkaisu vaatii ensin reipasta lyöntiä ja sitten monta reipasta lyöntiä hamaraan. Kunnon retkikirveellä vastaava puu halkeaa yhdellä, viimeistään toisella kunnon lyönnillä. Vaellukselle ottaisin mieluummin Rosellin retkipiilun tai vaikka Fiskarsin retkikirveen (molemmista on kastroidut lyhytvartiset mallit, ne ovat naurettavia, lisävarsi ei paina juuri mitään) ja pienen kätevän vuolupuukon.

Mutta kun arvostetaan käytännöllisyyttä tilanteessa kuin tilanteessa, niin vaikea on keksiä parempaa työkalua kuin Skrama. Pidän tuota aina autossa ja kanniskelen jatkuvasti metsässä.

Olisi hienoa, jos tästä tehtäisiin vielä L -versio. Terään 4-5 senttiä lisäpituutta, milli -paksuutta, leveyttä kasvattaisin vain muutaman millin. Ostan heti kun valmistuu.
