W2 Puukko + Hamon with a Stacked Vintage Micarta Handle

300.00

This knife oozes style. The stacked Micarta handle hearkens back to the vintage stacked leather handled knives made in the early 1900s. The Micarta’s natural fiberous feel adds an almost imperceptible grip to the handle. The satin finished blade has a wonderfully chaotic hamon achieved through an exacting heat treat regime.

When I go out working in the forest, I bring a knife like this. The 4” blade is perfect for cutting an apple at lunch and works well as a medium sized carving knife in a pinch. When I think of a knife for bushcrafting, this is what I picture.

Blade: 4” hand forged W2 tool steel, with a auto hamon. The blade was etched in ferric chloride acid and sanded back to a satin finish that brings out the hamon activity

Handle: Buffalo Horn bolsters, copper spacers and a stacked vintage linen micarta handle. The handle is affixed to the blade with G-flex Epoxy and the tang is peened to provide a mechanical hold.

Sheath: Vegetable tanned cowhide leather with a double welt, hand saddle stitching and hand tooling.
