    Hand forged Puukko knife

    Puukko forged out of piece of old file.
    Handle is made from birch skin , black leather and brass.

    I also made very simply leather sheath, stitched with white thread.

    Blade length: 85 [mm]
    handle lenght: 75 [mm]
    So It's a small "pocket" knife.

    Made a similar one many years ago using an old file.
    Many rings of leather for the grip and a DIY sheath, again very similar.
    It retains a excellent cutting edge and has withstood many a skinning job.
    Moose hide is really hard on knives!
