Lapin Puukko knives are made in the small town of Tervola in Finnish Lapland, near the artic circle. The shop was founded in 1974 by Esa Silvola. It has since grown to five knife makers. The knives are very traditional in form and severely functional in style. They have little in the way of decoration, but are made with the highest quality materials. They are knives meant to be used.

#3001; Leukupuukko 1, A basic small puukko with a blade about 3 3/8" long, and about 7 1/4" overall. The highly polished carbon steel blades are hardened to about 59 on the Rockwell C scale, and are about .125" thick (about 1/8"). They take and hold a superior edge. The knife and sheath weigh only about 2 1/4 ounces. This would make a neat neck knife. The leuku style flat pommel facilitates using the off hand to apply pressure to the point. It comes with the traditional pouch sheath that hangs from a twisted thong.$35
