This one came out nice.
This is an unmodified Stainless Finnish Puukko blade, made by Lauri, imported from Finland by a knifemaker in Michigan. (The folks I get lots of my Moose antler from.) Rockwell rated 58-59.
3 5/8" blade, 3/4"deep, 9" Overall.
This straight spined style is the tradition Finn sidearm knife. Many a Russian Cossack lost his blood pressure to this style of blade! (My ancestry is Finnish. I've heard lots of folk tales...)
Built in the traditional style, very clean straight lines. Blacktail Deer antler base, carbon fiber spacer, Brown Mallee Burl, and Brass. Maker's Mark on the hilt.
Enjoy some photos, this is a beauty!
This is one where you just get all happy when you hold it! Came out beautiful.
I need $125 for it.
I'll build a traditional style leather sheath for it tonight, it will go with the knife at no extra charge. (Looks like the sheath on the Rapala Fillet Knife, only much heavier leather.)
