It was one year ago yesterday that I made the first post on this blog. It featured a black ebonite handled puukko by Joonas Kallioniemi. In the past year I have posted frequently and learned a lot about the puukko and the culture of Finland thanks to the many generous puukkoseppä who have taken the time to write down their thoughts, share their knowledge and send photos of their work. Federico Buldrini was especially helpful during the past year, supplying information and photos for many posts.
I look forward to learning more from the friends I have made during the past year and to posting more of their work. If anyone has anything they would like to share or anything they would like to see a post about please leave a comment and I’ll contact you. I would be glad for any suggestions or requests.
I would like to share another ebonite handled puukko from Joonas Kallioniemi today and also to post a list of the countries that the viewers of this blog originate from, 97 countries in all. I would like to show the contributors to this blog how popular their work is. I never thought there was so much interest in the puukko when I made the first post one year ago!
