Customizing the leather swinger sheath for custom knife
You can choose the color for the leather swinger sheath for your custom knife. The price for every sheath is the same and it's always made separately exactly for the knife that you order. The sheath is so precise that you can hear a slight click sound when the knife is pulled in to the sheath. There is available four different colours for the sheath: the traditional Tommi Puukko´s black and red combination, dyed brown (reddish), natural brown and black.
Customizing the handle for custom knife
Handle is made of arctic wood and the colour is tinted. There are three basic color variations: black, dyed-brown (reddish) and natural brown wood (blond). There is also available a more expensive variation - the handle made of birch bark. The birch bark handle is made by glueing together thin sheets of birch bark and then grind and sand it to the desired form. The grip of a birch bark handle is especially good and many also like the looks of this material. Because of the nature of birch bark this material can't be chosen for any Pokara models or any other knife that has a curved handle.
Customizing the blade
The blade is most important part of custom knife. We offer four basic blades for any of our custom knife. The usual steelblade is very durable and beautiful. If you want to show the hand forged nature of the blade than you can choose a blade with hand forged upper part or the same with a slightly made polish. The most expencive and the best available blade for your custom knife is the damascus blade. The damascus is a mixture of different coloured steels and it forms a very beautiful and long lasting blade.
Customizing the bolsters for custom knife
The bolsters are available of three different metals. They are solid casted. You can choose the normal brass bolsters or bronze (am.english also brass) with the same price. The silver bolsters are more expencive and they give your custom knife a more expensive lookout.
If you want to buy a really expensive and unique knife please ask our price for a custom knife with golden bolsters.
