    Oh man. This puukko would be right up my alley. You see, I'm originally from the easternmost part of Finland and I have not yet seen, before this one anything that is really based on the original puukko's from that area. My favourite is Tommi-puukko but this style originates slightly more to the north, allthough very similar. You can take the man from the east but you never take the east from the man. :)

    @HFinn - email the man. He would make you an exceptional knife with pleasure, for you, a neighbor from the East. :thumbsup:

    Here is the result after drying and mounting.

    ... and of course some more Tikkanen Puukko as the thread intends ;)

    (~ not the same polypore - I left this one to grow more ~)

    Thanks @RayseM for posted Henri Tikkanen’s beautiful Puukko. It inspired me to order this little Birch Bark “Taskupuukko” from him and I couldn’t be more pleased with the Puukko and Henri. Great guy to deal with and hope to order more from him A884B998-4665-429A-8123-86DC68DB3FAD.jpeg 6D314FA9-FADD-4280-97AC-B3BF5902040E.jpeg

    Good for you @Tutone :thumbsup: You've got yourself an authentic working puukko there. Yes indeed - Henri and his puukkos are an excellent combination. I'm certainly enjoying my knife from him too - holds an edge and is a comfort to hold.

    Cheers, Ray

    Had to share my full size 3.75” blade birch bark Puukko from Henri I just received. Love Henri’s work and I think it is a good match to his little pocket necker puukko‼️ 13FB72D6-FC2D-43D8-A811-BD2E7E8A452C.jpeg 6369526A-984A-4B2B-A778-720CB830EC21.jpeg

    Beautiful knives.
    I posted this elsewhere, but certainly appropriate here. A great historical video.
