Welcome to Nordiska Knivar, a blog about traditional Nordic knives.  Primary focus is the puukko, a cultural treasure  of Finland. If you have any photos or information you would like to add please let me know, I’d be glad to hear from you! I’m sorry, I am not a knife maker or blade smith and cannot answer technical questions.

The photo  featured in the header is by Roman Kislitsyn with blade by Pasi Hurttila.

I keep on watching nordiskaknivar since about two weeks and I still don’t have enough 🙂 I’m scrolling the index page up and down, admiring the same knives again and again – my wife says “you are crazy” but I just can’t stop 🙂 You guys are absolutely awesome and you’re making outstanding puukko-knives.
    Scandinavia should be proud having the best knifemakers in the world.
