Puukko Full Tang knife
Referring to the design of the puukko knife was conceived as a universal knife designed to perform various tasks in the bosom of nature. The size, shape of the blade and the design of the handle are derived from the well-known, refined in ancient times shapes straight from Finnish soil. When designing the knifemaker Jakub Sliwka focused on refreshing this model in his own way, but not losing the features of the knife developed over the years, which have been proven for years. The result is a knife with very useful features, but also eye-catching workmanship and design.
Premium elmax steel as the core of the knife construction
The knife is made of the high quality elmax steel (chrome-vanadium-molybdenum powder steel). Elmax is one of the few steels available on the market in the absolute top quality of materials used in the production of premium knives. The elmax blade is extremely resistant to overload, stays sharp for a long time (wears very slowly) and has excellent anti-corrosion properties.
A universal blade for any task
The blade with a spine thickness of 3,5 mm, made in the drop point style (puukko shape), with a high flat cut, ensures smooth cutting and performing various tasks (piercing, planing, preparing meals, etc.). We have a 115 mm blade at our disposal, the spine of which is deliberately finished more sharply, allowing for efficient work with the flint.
Robust ergonomic handle made of stabilized wood
The handles are made of stabilized wood (Karelian birch with blue as the dominant color). The handle uses green G10 liners.
The knife is equipped with a black sheath made of natural leather. The dangler style scabbard has a belt clip for vertical mounting. The scabbard was sewn with a blue thread, consistent with the color of the knife handle.
