Frontier Puukko

This knife was made as a birthday gift for my fiancée's nine year old cousin. He really wanted a handmade knife with a rustic feel, specifically with an antler handle and his first initial carved on one side. I chose to make a scandi-ground, puukko style blade with the forged finish left on. The blade is held in place with homemade cutler's resin and secured with a brass pin. I wanted the overall package to have a sort of American frontier feel; something suitable to carry around the woods and pastures of our county. I hope he enjoys it for many years.

Specifications:

- Rough-forged Aldo's 1085 blade
- Rough antler and maple handle
- measurements to come shortly
- Vegetable tanned, naturally dyed leather sheath with integral belt loop
