  • nice touch with the leather handle. traditionally birch bark is used. the tang is made slightly sharp to a point then you just push down strips of bark on the tang and shape them afterwards - either by cutting or sanding. you might also consider a paint on the birch bark afterwards for a nice finnish ;p

  • A very beautiful knife. Usually easier to just punch the hole in the leather on piece at the time (that's how it was traditionally done) and the proper way to finish the handle is with oils and wax. Still, the end result is very pretty.

    Vere AbsolutumVere Absolutum2 måneder siden
  • thats a good looking knife. but thats not a puukko. its never made in damascus, tho sometimes made san mai style. the decorative patterns made by melting wax on the blade and carving that, then etching it deep. its always forged to shape with very little grinding, the forging supposedly making it stronger. the spine of the blade is never sharp, the use of the knife is generally whittling wood and some of the common techniques for it require you to press the blade down with your fingers from the spine. the tang is much thinner with a sharp tip, the purpose of that being you impale birch bark on it without tearing them in half. the handle material is generally that birch bark, tho stacking it is sortof the proper way. there is no glue between the slices of birch bark. the fittings are generally brass. usually engraved. while the handles are usually finished with (sometimes dyed) varnish, they arent that hard, i feel like supergluing the handles makes it much harder. the birch bark is sortof fairly rubbery, much like cork without all the holes.
