Lapin Puukko was founded near Arctic Circle in 1974 as a "one man company" by Esa Silvola. Today Lapin Puukko employs five knife makers and all the knives and sheaths are still handmade with the utmost excellence and craftsmanship.
Due to the lightly oiled finish and the nature of the Arctic Birch these knife handles have a warm, comfortable and firm feel. Each individual knife has a molded, hand fit leather sheath, precisely made for the exact knife.
These knives are razor sharp, have long edge retention and are easy to sharpen. They are comfortable, light weight and durable. The Puukko is an excellent tool that will last for decades. They can be rugged working knives or exquisitely fine-looking collector items, even both at the same time!
