Blade thickness: 0.196 (5 mm). For over a thousand years, the woodsmen of Finland have used puukko knives to work their trade.The knife is the result of generations of use and development by the Sami people. It has become a symbol of honor for those people and the lives they live. These knives are known around the world for their practical design and function. The puukko is used for all manner of tasks around the forest, farm and workshop. It is a versatile knife that can be adapted to many varying tasks to suite the owners needs. It excels in wood carving due to the flat grind and shape of the handle which allows full, but controlled power to be applied when carving.
The leather sheath is wet and formed to fit each knife individually. The leather material is manufactured in a local tannery using the same methods and techniques that were used 100 years ago. Each sheath is custom-made and hand-stitched using saddle stitch and waxed linen thread. Each knife sheath is individually custom dyed with Fiebings professional oil dyes.Afterward, the sheath is waxed with palm leaf wax and beeswax. To protect against moisture it is finished using acrylic leather sheen. >>>> This knife is made in Pakistan we make World's best Handmade knives.
