On second thought. How about a Lord of the rings/ The Hobbit theme? One could make a short sword, long sword, or axe. What say you fellow bladesmiths? hahaha

I'm all about the puukko! I like in the worlds second largest Finnish populated area, ever since I moved here it's been a facination of mine.

Clearly, you've never been to Poulsbo, Washington. :D

HA!

 

Sorry to Highjack! but, I grew up in the U.P. and lived out close to Poulsbo WA! and I am Finnish!

 

I voted for Puukkos but I am down for anything though... I do like the LOTR idea too!

the last time I did one of these, I did do a LOTR-inspired blade I wasn't as happy with it as I'd hoped I'd be, but I was certainly committed to it.

 

As a 1/4 Finn myself, I would relish a Pukko, but I'm too reserved to be pushy about it. ;)

LOTR would be interesting. I think it would definitely let me flex my artist muscles a bit more, and I would end up tricking myself into NEEDING to make a sword. A temptation that I already have a hard time spurning. :)

 

Regardless of the outcome, I am pretty pumped.

I have noticed that bowies and pukkos are tied. I have a proposal if it can not be broken... Fuse them.

 

Everyone do there own take on the bowkko... puuwie or poukie.

 

Personally I thing they make a great fusion piece since both use elements of each other from time to time.

 

What ya' say?

Yeah!

 

I just posted the idea because I have seen a few pukkos and leukus with bowie type accents. Love the leuku also.

 

and when does the poll close anyway?

I've got another idea to throw in the mix. Scrap knives. If your shop is like mine, you've got little bits cut off and lying everywhere. The steel would have to be "scrap" (you are on your honor), even Damascus scrap counts. Some kind of GP bench knife as a target, set a short date, and there you go.

 

I'm still in favor of some kind of folder, but a "scrap" folder like Hloh makes, I'd carry that every day, just to show people!.
