Puukko Style Utility Knife


This is a made-to-order Scandinavian style utility knife in the style shown in the pictures. Every knife is designed and hand-forged in our Timmonsville, South Carolina shop, using traditional techniques combined with an extensive knowledge of modern metallurgical science. This knife has the following features:

- Inspired by the Scandinavian Puukko style knife

- 3.5" Hand-forged full tang blade, 7.25" total length

- Available in either 52100 high carbon steel, or 154CM stainless high carbon steel

- Exceptionally sharp and durable

- Full tang, hand-carved handle with your choice of available locally harvested or reclaimed wood. Available wood types are shown here: (When ordering please specify your top two choices)

- Blade spine is tapered for durability, balance, and style

- Blade edge is hardened and tempered to approx. 60-62 Rockwell C hardness

- Blade is differentially tempered twice, producing a tougher blade with a higher hardness edge than a typical single temper knife of the same composition

- Blade is cryogenically frozen between tempers, increasing edge-holding ability, toughness, and stain-resistance

- Signed with the maker's signature "R" touchmark

- A custom fitted, welted leather sheath is available for an additional $60
