Woodsknife Traditional puukko 77, dark
The Puukko. Need we say more? Okay, the traditional Finnish knife used for everything - woodworks, eating, playing catch and killing your brother. With a blade length of 77 mm this one is as traditional as it gets, great for wood carving and everything else that an axe is too big for.
Puukko is the thing we won the Winter War with, among other things. It's the ultimate knife for everything. This is no shit actually - the secret being that puukko is not made to look imposing, but to help you in daily life. It's small, easy to carry and the blade is well suited for woodworking and other small chores.
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).
Made by Harri Merimaa / Woodsknife Oy, made in Finland.
