Kauko Raatiniemi's new Arctic Leuku Knife style



Kauko Raatiniemi has done some changes to his Arctic Leuku Knife... I think this one is gorgeous! I liked the old one, but this looks even better... I think it has some classic elegance even being a rugged working tool... looks somehow "peaceful" and balanced.


What you think?

If I remember right, it is 5 3/4" blade. This one is similar to Leuku Bushcraft Lapp Knife by Woodsknife

American Finn said...

Yes, that would work. Puukkojunkkari"s Wolf Leuku might be another good choice for that use...
