Couple of late 1920's Kauhava puukko knives

I got a couple of interesting puukko pictures again... The first one is made by Jalmari Silla in late 1920's. He made most of his puukko knives at the beginning of the century, but this one is his latest knives since it already has the blood groove. The sheath is made by Rämäkkö.

The second puukko is made by Kauhavan Puukkotehdas in early 1930's. It has text "Made in Finland" together with the manufacturor's name on the blade and it has more of a "Härmä" style handle on it, so called "Hela top" (helapää). The sheath is made by Rämäkkö again.
