Just a quick puukko progress update.

Its definetely getting readier.

                                    Handle block atached,as well as the bolster.

                                     After shaping and still wet after two days in jar of tung oil. It has to be cleaned, and finished with 1000 grit sandpaper, brass part has to be filed and polished etc but its goin to be pretty beautiful...i think, what say you ?

I'll name it Ahma, which translates in to wolverine, as it will be having a wolverine paw in its handle,maybe in the sheath too.  I have always found wolverine interesting and it sure is controversial, loved,hated, chased,protected smaller creature living here. Some see it as a terrible beast killing reindeers,some realise that it might not kill as much as claimed. Theres not much of them around anymore,but some think they all should be hunted down. To me, its definetely an animal worth keeping alive,as well as any other predator in this world, from wolves to gators,from snakes to mountain lions. The worst creature to roam in this globe,are we the people,not the animals.

Just as wolverine is, this knife will do things that people like, like carving decorated camp tools,and whittle shavings to set up a warming fire,as well as tasks that some find repulsive, meaning skinning,boning,gutting game.

Order yours from T.Kotavuopio, its easy even for oversears customers.
