Perla - Puukko Knife - Custom Scandinavian Bushcraft Knife w/ Sheath
Puukko knives are traditional bushcraft & hunting knives in Finland. This custom specimen is built around a 4 3/4" high carbon steel blade, hand forged by Gladium Design in northern Sweden.
The handle is comprised of gorgeous ironwood burl, solid brass, and pearlescent polycarbonate resin. Each knife is lovingly handcrafted in our small Austin, TX wood shop.
Likewise, the included sheath is crafted by hand in our shop, each one is custom fit to the knife it holds. The sheath is inspired by the traditional Finnish methodology, including a wooden, friction-fit, blade guard/support encased within the wet-molded, hand sewn, full-grain leather sheath.
Each sheath is also unique, as in addition to being sewn by hand, they are all made of reclaimed, repurposed, and/or recovered scrap leather of varying quantities/shapes. This offers unique challenges - to create with what we have available - and also unique opportunities - to make beautiful things out of what normally gets thrown away...
