    Hello
    So happy to find this forum and specifically this Puukko thread. Until I found this forum, I thought I was the only person in the world afflicted with this knifeitis disease. I was infected with it 50 years ago when I was 10. Since I grew up very poor, my parents main focus was feeding us. No spare cash for niceties. So, at 10 I set out to make myself a knife. I've been obsessed with knifemaking as a hobby ever since. The last few years, my obsession turned towards Puukko's due to their simplicity and ergonomics. These below are my Pocket Puukko's which I carry on a daily rotation.

    If I can ever figure out how to post higher resolution fotos, I have a few more to post

    Have a great weekend to all my new friends and best regards from Virginia!

    Hello

    I’m still having problems posting pictures. Probably user error! But, enclosed is an older post. I used to inlet the sheath halves for the blade but now I just epoxy in spacers to create the gap. Much less time consuming. I also epoxy rare earth magnets on the sheath which holds the knife steady and safetly in the sheath.

    Hope this helps.

    Be Blessed

    Resurrecting an old thread but every now and then kicking one of these slumbering old post is worth it. Especially when the subject matter is always current.

    I especially like these 2 -

    Tanto Puukko?

    Starry Night Puukko?

    Here is my particular favorite my Henri Tikkanen - Karjalan Puukko

    3.5" carbon steel blade with birch bark handle.

    A Finnish Puronvarsi blade I handled in Briar root (washed up on the beach!), shape inspired by the rombic blade shape.
