Puukkojunkkari (name for 19th century thugs in South Ostrobothnia) is a family business in Finland's "puukko making capitol", Kauhava. They take a great pride of their name and honor Ostrobothnia's long history of knife making.
The Region of South Ostrobothnia is situated in the Province of Western Finland. The region is made up of 26 municipalities, of which eight are towns and the rest are municipalities. The region is known for its entrepreneur ship, fertile countryside and diversified cultural supply.
Puukkos, and Nordic knives in general have the peculiarity that there is only one bevel on the blade, which forms the working edge, they are therefore very easily sharpened, as all is needed is to grind this bevel to get the sharpness back. The fact that the bevel is big allows finding it intuitively on the stone. The puukko often sport a grind that looks like a saber grind. However, there are no secondary edge bevels which leave the edge extremely thin and incredibly sharp. Due to the sharpness of the edge, these knives will often out cut just about anything.
