I just received photos from Markku Parkkinen of some of his recent work, four beautiful knives shown below. Thank you Markku for showing us your work!
Markku: “The Lapland knife is made of bronze, reindeer antler and root burl of goat willow tree. The blade is Böhler k510.
The materials of other knives that have reindeer leather sheath are bronze and birch bark. The one knife that has birch bark edges on the sheath has brass on the decoration. All these knives have also Böhler k510 as the blade.”
