Woodsknife Big Leuku 180
A leuku is a traditional larger outdoors knife used in Finland for ages, it's used for those jobs that require less finesse, chopping stuff and carving sticks into stakes etc. This "Big" leuku is truly worh its name, the blade measures a full 180 mm giving it excellent chopping power for heavy use!
Carbon steel blade and birch handle. The sheath is of the traditional Finnish style, wet formed leather, fitting snugly over the handle. 4-6 cm wide belt hanger.
These type of traditional knives have been around for ages, and for a reason: they are rugged, simple and practical. They have been used as weapons almost as much as everyday tools, at least in the past. Still today they are an essential piece of kit for any outdoors enthusiast. What makes a traditional puukko and leuku special compared to modern blades is that they have no saw-edge bullshit, or anything like that - you have a simple, strong and sharp carbon steel blade with a wooden handle. This truly is all you need, if you know how to use it.
Carbon steel is good stuff for knives, but without proper care it can rust. Always clean and dry off the blade after use and remember to oil it now and then (any cooking oil will do just fine).
Made by Harri Merimaa / Woodsknife Oy, made in Finland.

I bought a much smaller but similar knife in Sweden and was impressed by the workmanship and quality of the knife, though I spent twice as much (~$200).
The feel of this knife is hard to explain, but it just fits. Its almost like the handle was made specifically for my hand.
It has a good weight for the size and so far has worked well in general camping tasks. The edge was sharp when it arrived and it had no sign of dulling or folding since using it.
This is a great gift for any outdoorsman. I would say that I would buy more products from Harri Merimaa but I feel that this knife will be passed down to my son/grandchildren.
