Shear Steel Puukko

Recommended Posts

..or it might be bloom. Its some high carbon grainy steel I pinched from Owen Bush's scrap that we though was just wrought. 

 

Laminated it with with wrought iron and put a handle on it. Silver birch burl I have on permanent loan from an estate in the Cairngorms. Brass sheet brazed into a ferrule and brass sleeve over the tang to peen against.

A very pretty knife and sheath and shear steel is always nice to see.

 

How did you make the ferrule?

I really like this knife. Has a very nice blade shape. I notice it has a secondary bevel. Is this common with a puukko? I've seen them made with and without. I want to try my hand at one but didn't know which I should try.

Very nice! I love the lines of the knife, from the acute tip to the swell at the end of the handle - it all flows beautifully.
