san mai puukko

Post by hellize »

It is 19.5 cm / 7.7 inch long, the blade is 9.5 cm/ 3.75 inch long with a thickness of 4 mm / 0.15 inch.
It is a san mai damascus with 200 layers, which I hand forged from 5160, L6 and 1.2516. The handle is made of deer antler, walnut and stabilized wood.
The sheath is made of 4 mm/ 0.15 inch thick, sturdy cowhide.

Again you do outstanding work! Rare to find a maker that excels in both the knife and the sheath.
You can always get more money, good old knives are hard to find.

Nature abhors a vacuum, me I hate a dull knife.

You are way to frivolous with your words, my friend. But thank you very much, none the less! :D

Not at all frivolous, just ask my wife! A bit curious about your maker mark. Could interpret as a cross or deer track. And maybe it’s both.

:) In that case, all my veneration, to your dear wife!
Indeed, it is both. The cross within a shield tells about my admiration of all things medieval, while the deer hoofprint comes from my childhood nickname: moose :D
