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.
