    Kellam Puukko and a pot hanger a la R. Mears


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Today I want to make a pot hanger a la Ray Mears. I will use my Kellam Puukko, here whit my Vic Ranger for comparison





    Letís make the pot hanger







    Detail



    Letís continue





    Three different positions available




    Any detailed pics




    This knife doesnít appeal me too much (donít know why), but I must admit that it works well. The handle is pretty comfortable, the scandi blade is highly efficient on carving woods.
    Regards,
    Alfredo

    Nice practice session Alfredo.
    I like that puuko too. What is it that you don't like about it?

    Thanks tek77.
    I don't like the "rude" grade of workmanship about this knife, it seems to me "just a blade plus an handle" if you understand what I mean :-)

    Kellam knives are made using Lauri blades. Why not buy your own Lauri blades and start making your own customized Puukkos?

    I have a Kellam Wolverine, and it is a great knife, but I discovered that the same blade is sold as the Lauri PT blade for US$19. Since that discovery, I have been making my own puukkos and work knives using Lauri blanks.

    (great photos btw. Nice view you have from your back yard!)

    Those "Kellams" (i.e., rebranded Ahtis) are pretty good knives. If you like the puukko design, but that particular specimen leaves you cold, you might consider stepping up to the custom, handcrafted versions. I have three, and each one is superior to the Ahti I used to have.

    Cool, good job bud. I made the same set up a few weeks ago. Kind of makes one wonder were Mr. Mears got his info from............ Hats off to anyone actually getting off their butts and doing this stuff.

    Thanks, the handle is indeed made from birch bark. An awesome material, it has an incredibly luxurious feel.
