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, carbon steel
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.
Woodsknife & Tommi Mäkelä Pukkilan Jaska puukko
A one-off, limited edition puukko made in cooperation by Harri Merimaa of Woodsknife and Tommi Mäkelä of Laurin Metalli. The Pukkilan Jaska is a neat little thing, although this is clearly a thing of beauty it´s still a tool and works great in all kinds of general smaller tasks from whittling to food preparation, that is if you don´t mind your limited edition puukko showing some signs and marks of life. Numbered limited edition!
Hunters Element Primaloft Jacket
A warm, lofty, very packable and waterproof jacket for situations when the movement stops or remains minimal. Filled with Primaloft, the same high quality stuff used in Jervenbags. Camouflaged with the Veil camo, which is specifically designed to fool the animal eye. Mega sale: Hunters Element is in the process of updating the models (probably some little tidbit upgrading), and we're selling the rest of our suppliers stock for cheap. In other words, this is a damn good deal!
Pentagon Artaxes Softshell Jacket
A full Softshell jacket lined with Grid Fleece, the kind you want for winter and mid seasons! Along with the weather resistant fabric and surprisingly perfect hood these have an excellent selection of pockets.
Särmä TST L2 turtleneck shirt, merino wool
A functional midweight turtleneck shirt for demanding active wear. Made from a polyamide reinforced merino wool blend. Functions both as a heavier base layer or a mid layer, great for both the cold seasons and cool summer nights.
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 curly 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).
We sell puukkos and leukus from two different makers, Woodsknife and Kauhavan Puukkopaja. Both use blades made by Laurin Metalli and the sheaths are pretty much identical. The difference is in the finish and handle design: Kauhavan Puukkopaja knives are overall less polished and made with the very most traditional handle designs ever. Woodsknife pushes the envelope a bit further with very nice finishing touches and personalized handle designs that differ a bit from what you commonly see. Putting finishing touches aside both perform equally well as tools - think about your specific needs in finish and blade size and choose the model that suits you best!
Made by Harri Merimaa / Woodsknife Oy, made in Finland. Check out the detailed pictorial step-by-step breakdown of the manufacturing process on his website: "Puukontek ovaiheet ja tietoa terästä".
Warning! Before buying, please make sure that these are legal to import to your country! We take no responsibility if the customs officer confiscates your precious bayonet/knife/machete! These are perfectly legal in Finland and that is all we are interested in.
This is where puukkos come from!
