    ADVERTISEMENT
    I'm a huge fan of Finnish puukkos, they are probably my favorite design. I'd love to see pics if you got em. I'll start, these are the only two I currently own:

    Those are very nice!
    I only have one similar knife, and it's from Sweden. I'm not sure if this fits here, but here it is any way.
    A friend gave it to me, and I'm pretty sure it's quite old.

    Not my pics, but I do own these. These are recent vintage, but definitely traditional. I believe that there is another puukko thread, this may get merged with that thread.

    I have a nice wood handled Mora, sitting in a tackle box on the boat, carbon steel of course. Need to salvage it and take care of the old gal.

    Those are sweet. I always wanted a wirkkala, just could never find them for a decent price. I also recall a similar thread, not sure if it was puukko specific though. regardless I woud've revived it but couldn't find it in a search.

    I have two Puukos. I only have a pic of one at hand, my Hackman Tapio Wirkalla. I've had these for decades. Have no idea of the original cost anymore.

    Knarfeng about that Wirkkala. I've seen Wirkkalas in much more worse condition asking price well over $150 and better condition better price. Wirkkala's are after all well sought, pretty rare and in here Finland they are part of national museum collection and awarded with quite few design awards making original ones even more sought in FInland.

    I have a small Wirkkala, in excellent condition. I've been offered quite a sum for it, but will never sell. I have several other Finnish-made Puukkos, that I often use as kitchen knives. One of the most useable designs ever.

    I've been a puukko collector and crafter for years. Here's a link to some of my collection and those I've crafted.

    Pasi Hurttila, finnish blacksmith and wilderness guide, a nice guy to discuss with and very skilled craftman.

    I think that a knife like mine would go for about 140 $, as VAT isn't added out of Europe.

    There are a numerous costly and sought-after puukkot here in Finland, but I just have rather modest ones because I use them a lot. It is a brilliantly simple design, elegant and variable and the pouch dangler sheath is almost always safe, secure and easy to wear (no unpleasant jabbing in the ribs when you sit down or drive like with most sheath-knives)

    Couple of Marttiini, carbon and stainless. Reliable enough,inexpensive and unfairly looked down on by some. Kind of better finished Mora.

    Bought a Leuku and Puukko from the Iisakki Järvenpää factory outlet in Kauhava. These knives are honest enough but perhaps not as good as they once were.The factory has an interesting exhibition and some very good old photos too.

    Pair of nice knives from Matti Koski in Kauhava, Kauhavan puukoseppajä. One stainless the other carbon, both have good handles a mix of curly Birch(dark stained) and Reindeer antler. Many variants available too.
