New Work From The Puukkoseppä

The long days of summer are upon us and everyone is spending time out of doors so the postings on Nordiska Knivar have been sparse lately.  However, I would like to show you some recent work by some of the puukkoseppä who have been profiled here. Check back to this page from time to time in the next days and weeks because I’ll add more photos as I receive them.

There will also be some upcoming posts written by Federico Buldrini in the near future.  Thank you for your interest, if you see any puukko or leuku that you like here, please check that maker’s profile for more information and feel free to contact them.

Something special from Ilkka:

“The customer wanted a long and narrow blade for cutting fish and some shapes in the handle to secure the grip while cutting slimy fish.
Traditional materials, traditional way of making and looking like a puukko.
The rest I can make as I want. So, I made it traditionally, without any power tools. Heat treatments were made with living fire, trusting my own eyes. Just like real smiths have done before the electric oven.
Materials;
Blade: an old file
Handle: cross cut curly birch
Bolster: moose antler
Sheath: thick cow hide with wooden insert.”
