  1. Paljon kiitoksia means Thank you very much.
  2. Paljon kiitoksia! Just practicing my Finnish.
  3. Completed last evening. Puukko: 115mm x 22mm blade with beveled spine and slight drop point. Black ash burl handle with brass bolsters and contrasting ebony.
  4. Thanks Rob. Later today, I will be posting another puukko I finished last evening.
  5. I completed this puukko utilizing a Puronvarsi 125mm blade shortened to 115mm , removed the brut de forge and polished the blade to 800x with a Scotch-Brite gray satin finish and slightly reprofiled the cutting edge. Nickel silver was used for the front bolster and end cap on the cocobolo handle. The cocobolo has darkened to a golden reddish brown after a boiled linseed oil and rottenstone rubdown then a couple of hours in the sun.
  6. Thank you Gerhard, I am thinking about it since your last post to me.
  7. Chris, your comments about my work are most gracious indeed and coming from a fellow craftsman means a great deal to me. Thank you.
  8. Thank you Clifford. Glad you like them.
  9. Than you very much Mr. Craft for your very kind comments. The makers mark is not mine , but the Finnish craftsman Yro Puronvarsi. I have had these blades for a few years and recently decided to use them for knife projects. I modify the the blades to true up the spine and bevels slightly change the length and belly shape. I do not have a makers mark myself. The YP Mark is stamped in during the forging process. These blades are made one at a time.
