I absolutely love Puukkos as a utility and bush crafting knife. The sturdy scandi grind is fantastic for for woodworking and various utility tasks. Simple, straightforward, dependable. It could be handed down as an heirloom, with multiple lifetimes of use, if taken care of correctly.
My blades have soul to them, They are entirely hand crafted, and unique. You won't be able to match the quality, performance and passion of these knives with anything store bought. They are heirloom quality, extremely effective tools.
The blade is differentially quenched and tempered 80CRV2 high carbon steel. 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 killer edge that will last through a long period of use.
The handle is carefully sculpted to fit the intricate complexities of the human hand. I have sculpted 1,500+ handles thus far, and have refined grip ergonomics to an art. They are incredibly comfortable. The handle has also been kissed with flames, and branded for both function and style.
I harden my knives using a computer controlled kiln. Using this tool allows me to get maximum edge retention out of a given piece/type of steel.
Each blade I sell has a my lifetime warranty, covering reasonable uses. With proper care, one of my blades could last multiple generations.
