A sturdy, large knife. As the name implies, this is sort of a general purpose blade. Add an axe and you're pretty much set for anything. Quality stuff made right here in Finland!
Carbon steel blade and curly birch handle. Total length 25 cm, blade length 12 cm, thickness 3 mm. 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.
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.

I'm a knife nut. Ive got a bunch of folders, as well as fixed blades. Everything from Benchmade to Terävä.
This knife is as close to my ideal as I've found so far. Good easy to maintain Scandi grind, blade is not too long, but also not to short. I've got large hands (10" span) and this isn't an uncomfortable knife to use. Most US market deer knives are too small, and useless for anything but hunting. This knife strikes what is to me the best balance between bushcraft and practicality. Backpacking, it'll be tough to decide between this and the Skrama. I probably lean towards thew Woodsknife, I'm partial to wood handles... (Modern materials be damned, they may be "better" but I still love wood on a knife or a rifle...)
