    Formerly titled "Custom Handled Puukko, Sheath".

    Polar blade, very sharp.


    Overall length: 9 7/8"
    Blade length: 4 7/8"
    Cutting edge: 4 3/4"
    Blade thickness: 1/8"

    Guard: paper micarta
    Other spacers: vulcanized fiber
    Wood: maple
    Finish: light tru oil finish, sanded to 2000 grit

    Sheath: 6-7 oz. leather, treated with neatsfoot oil and Sno Seal. Stitched with synthetic thread. All thread ends are heat sealed. Sheath has a wood inner lining. Make sure the blade tip is in the lining before you push. Retention is excellent.

    The juncture between blade and guard is sealed completely with epoxy.

    A couple of indentations, left side of handle, right behind the blue spacer, up high. Hard to see, but you can feel them. I tried to capture them in this picture:

    All new; never sharpened or used.

    The blue in these pictures is rendered a bit brighter than in real life.

    $65 shipped to anywhere in CONUS, AK, and HI. Add $3 for Canada.

    I prefer PayPal. If paying by USPS money order: money order must be in my hands before shipping. If by check, check must clear the bank before shipping.

    Polar blade, carbon steel. very sharp.


    Overall length: 9 7/8"
    Blade length: 4 7/8"
    Cutting edge: 4 3/4"
    Blade thickness: 1/8"

    Guard: paper micarta

    Sheath: 6-7 oz. leather, treated with neatsfoot oil and Sno Seal. Stitched with synthetic thread. All thread ends heat sealed. Sheath has a wood inner lining. You have to make sure the blade tip is in the lining before you can confidently push. Retention is excellent.

    A couple of indentations, on left side of handle, just behind the blue spacer, up high. Hard to see, but you can feel them. These add character and value. I tried to capture them in this picture:
