Brusletto knives are made from high carbon stainless steel
hardened to about 58 on the Rockwell "C" scale.
They come in a variety of elegant, but traditional styles. Workmanship is very
good. Most of the sheaths have a molded plastic insert to protect the sheath and
owner. Unless otherwise noted, they come with a gift box.
The Spikkekniv ("whittling knife") is a joint effort of Brusletto, Norges Husflidslag
(The Norwegian Folk Art and Craft Federation) and Skogselskaper (The Norwegian Forestry Society).
It's really quite sweet.
The knife was designed as a carving knife for children to interest them in whittling and woodcraft.
The carbon steel blade is just under 2 1/2" long, and shaped for carving.
The handle is sized for a child's hand, but is still usable by an adult. Actually it fits my hand quite nicely.
It's the only Brusletto knife with a carbon steel blade. Carbon stel is used to provide easier sharpening along
with excellent edge retention. The handle is stamped with an image of the
project's mascot "Spikketrollet" which is suggested as an easy first carving project. The sheath has a plastic
liner for safety.
The knife weighs about 3 3/4" including the sheath, so it would also make an interesting neck knife.
As you can tell, I really like this one. It comes without a box, and the price is $45
The Hallingskarvet is a small traditional knife named after a mountain in one of the Norwegian national parks.
The handle is only about 3 3/4" long, but feels good in my average sized hand. The blade has a graceful
clip, and is about 2 3/4" long, and .093" thick. This would make an excellent small utility knife, and would
work nicly as a neck knife. It weighs a bit less than 3 1/2 ounces including the sheath, The sheath will accept 2"
belts and has a plastic safety liner. It would also be
an interesting whittling knife. $39
"Speider" is Norwegian for "Scout", and this is one of the Norwegian Boy Scout
knives. The slightly upswept stainless blade is about 3 3/8" long, and a stout .135" thick. . The birch handle is
just inder 4" long and there is a stout guard to keep the fingers off the blade.
The sheath is heavy leather with a plastic liner. I particularly like the way the sheath is designed. It fastens with a snap,
but the wide flap is positioned just above the guard. This tends to retain the knife even if the snap is undone, unless
it's deliberately folded back. It solves the main problem I have with most snap style sheaths. I wish it was used more widely
for sheaths with snaps. The sheath has a sturdy belt loop that will accept belts up to about 1 3/4" wide.
The price is $49
The Fjel (mountain) is an upscale version with a curly birch handle. The knife has a solid feel in the hand, but is quite lightweight at about
3 1/4 ounces. The sheath has a plastic insert and will take belts up to 1 1/2s”. The knife is a bit over 7 3/4” overall,
and feels like a worker. The price is $129.
