Puukko Knife- Bubinga
Full Length- approximately 6 5/8"
Blade- approximately 2 5/8"
Blade Width- 13/16"
The puukko is a Scandinavian knife that has been made for centuries. The blade is a stainless Norwegian blade made by Helle. The Norwegians typically produce high quality blades designed for cutting function and elegance.
The blade is cemented in the handle with epoxy resin. The handle material is Bubinga wood from the African Congo Basin, with a Birds Eye Maple bolster & end cap with black nylon spacers.
It is finished with a matt finish of Danish Oil, with a light, hand rubbed, beeswax. You can use linseed oil or lemon oil on it to brighten it up.
The sheath is made from a vegetable tanned leather, which allows for wet forming. The hanger is inserted through the sheath wet and then smoothed to finish. The hanger loop is held by friction only. The sheath is sewn with 20# braided fish line and is dyed in Kelly green. The hanger loop buttons are deer antler, sewn on after the sheath is dyed. I recommend keeping the sheath dry.
