Samiknife and wooden cups


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Here is the latest works. 

Sami style knife is made from birch burl and reindeer antler. Steel is german springsteel. 

Wooden cups or kuksa(s) or Guksi(s) are made also birch burl and antler. 

Other kuksa is engraved in traditional north european "sami people" style.

My first engraving work in that style and next time Im going to try it on knife. Next will be better :)

Cups are dyed by bark colour. Knife and sheath is dyed leather dye and bark colour.

Thanks for watching :)

Real nice work! If you are worried about the engraving, I don't see anything at all wrong with it! Great work, love the drinking cups!!

I don't know what I like better, the kuksas or the knife. They all exude a natural beauty.

Thank you very mutch. Those vere very nice works to do. Recommend to try. Just peace of burl wood and every knife maker have other tools. Kuksa is almost as common as knife for finnish outdoor people. Maybe same thing in Norway and sweden.

Both of those are really well done. Very clean lines and beautifully executed. Very nice work.
