    Birch bark handles feel silky and grippy at the same time. They are also warm, no matter the temperature outside and, beeing full of resin, are almost neutral to shrinking, getting damaged with moisture ect.

    OOOps, I meant the question to the original knife I was asking about. The Puukko with the Micarta handles, my mistake. Frederick80, I agree with you, I had a knife very simular to that one, liked it, but sold it. I will get another.

    Thanks. The craftsmanship of the Kallioniemi is absolutely top notch; the design and execution is all you could ask for in a custom. Still, I think I favor the Tuominen. IMO it's a better all-around knife. The handle is a bit more hand filling. The blade is also thicker and more robust, without compromising cutting ability. And the birch bark is awesome, it almost feels like leather.

    Here's an oldie from our relatives in Norway that they gave to my brother back in the 50's. He gave it to me last year. Beautiful thing.

    Is that a Mora? They don't make them like they used to.

    Blade says Kverneland and something underneath like Forge. Other side says Made in Norway. I need to dress the blade with some Camellia oil to remove the rust.

    Definitely not a Mora then, as Mora is a locality in Sweden. But it is a beautiful knife.

    Hmm, so none of them actually has a real scandi grind?

    Got loads of scandis, but I spent all my camera money on them! Here's 3 Frosts Lapplanders for starters

    I had a Boattail Scandi a couple of years ago that I got in a trade, like a horse's a$$ I traded it off and always regretted it

    until I found this lightly used one last week
