Traditionally the puukko knife was used for literally everything in Nordic culture. The quality of the knife is determined by the craftsmanship and assembly. Hand filed brass fittings and stacked micarta make this simple design speak for itself. The micarta offers perfect texture while being waterproof. Use it and rely on it is all I can say. Due to the full stick tang cobstruction you will have a lightweight everyday knife. Comes with a thick leather sheath.
