Handcrafted Knives To Your Collection
Open Photo Album
Many details have an effect to quality of a collectible handcrafted knife. All the raw materials and work methods are carefully selected by experienced knife smith. When the smith makes these decisions based on years of experience, the end result speaks for itself. These knives are really beautiful collectible items.
The process of creating new collectible knife starts from the blade. First smith heats up the steal in coaloven. When the steal is malleable smith creates the blade by hammering the steal with tools that are specialy designed to this job. Our smith also uses very unique technique where the steal blade is inure to oil. This strengthens the blade to it's optimal hardness, up to 62 RC hardness. This part of the process gives Tommi Puukko the strength and authenticity that Kainuun Puukkos products are well known.
The materials to leather Swinger shealth and handels are carefully selected. Handels are made from rare piece of wood (in finnish 'raidanjuuripahka'). The Wooden handel is lightly oiled for better grip and manageability. Finaly smith makes the leather Swinger shealth that holds only the Tommi Puukko that it was originaly designed for.
The blade, handel and swinger shealth are allways made by the same knive smith. This assures that all the parts are compatible.
Final touch for the collectible knife comes when the smith presses his initials to the blade.
Even the famous president Urho Kekkonen collected these knifes and he gave Tommi Puukkos as present for many famous world leaders.
