Hand Forged Damascus Steel Puukko Knife, With Bocote Handle
Puukkos are a wonderful general use and handy tool to have around. This is a traditional Finnish knife that is has been popular for many an age.
Overall length: 7.5" Blade length: 3.5"
Weight: 4.25 OZ or 120 grams*** Weight with sheath: 6.5 OZ or 184 grams***
The blade has been painstakingly forged. To highlight its nature as a hand forged, handmade tool I've used this 12 layer Damascus made with 1080 and 15N20 steels.
The blade is differentially quenched and tempered. Which is to say, the spine is soft, flexible and durable, the edge is extremely hard. The result of this heat treating method is that you have a durable, springy blade with a fantastic edge that will last through a long period of use before requiring sharpening.
The handle of this knife is Bocote featuring a deer antler bolster.
The sheath is hand made by me as well. It is lightly textured, riveted for strength, and water proofing has been soaked and rubbed in to the leather to protect the blade from the elements. It also has decorative tooling, and a belt loop. I designed the sheath to compliment the texture and color of the blade and handle.
Each blade I sell has a my lifetime warranty. If anything happens to it during the course of normal use, and I'm still alive, I will repair it.
