Description: This exceptional Puukko is from Nordic maker Lars-Erik Marsja. Marsja makes exceptional traditional Nordic style knives, though his work rarely makes it over to the United States. This knife will be the perfect companion while out in the field, though it could easily be the pinnacle of any knife collection. This knife was kept in a private collection since it was made. It is in brand new condition and by all appearances could have been made yesterday!
The san mai blade made by Kent Andersson features a 20C carbon steel core providing excellent edge holding and toughness. The Scandi grind is razor sharp. The short and narrow blade is perfect for a variety of tasks from whittling to caping while out in the field. The flats of the blade are forge textured and brought to a high polish. The spine is fileworked by hand.
The handle is a premium section of masur birch. The show side of the knife has elegant fluting and an inlaid twisted sterling silver wire inlay to provide additional grip. Ten decorative pins are also inlaid into the show side of the handle.
Bolsters are sterling silver, hand engraved and fileworked. The elegant engraving provides an excellent thumb purchase.
A traditional Nordic style leather sheath is included. The fittings are made from sterling silver with matching hand engravings.
Excellent work throughout!
