Deer Knives ~ Very traditional style puukko knives!

This one is Deer Knives' Hunting Puukko Knife. Deer Knives is located on Finland's West Coast. These are handmade using traditional methods and materials. There has been no power machines involved with assembling this knife at all! The sheath is hand sawed and fits the knife perfectly! The blade is forged by Antti Makinen, young Master Black Smith and blade maker in Finland. Antti is 6th generation blade maker and has rapidly risen to be one of the best black smiths. You can see the quality of his work when you have one of these knives in your hand! This blade is absolutely gorgeous! He stamps "YP" on every blade (YP-Taonta) and you can guarantee the sharpness of the blade! True traditional Finnish craftsmanship!
