    Looks like a nice tidy fit on the bolster (If only more people knew how tricky it is..)

    Nice combo too with the burl spacer..

    Hi, this is a Kuikka blade with Lead wood and buckeye burl (I think)

    Nickle silver bolster and pin with a thin copper spacer between the wood.

    Thank you for the comments and concerns (I always wear a mask and goggles fluffy and added long sleves and gloves in the shaping process..)

    Although very solid, the knife is pretty light, a combo of hidden tang and the CF, and easily balanced just…

    I have done a few scales in Carbon Fiber, but never a hidden tang. I knew it would be a bit of a challenge as CF can be an utter swine to drill.

    I did do a bit of a search on line and could not find much in the way of this sort of thing, but now I know…

    The fit on his Puukkos are like nothing else I have seen.

    Has quite the following in the US on the bushcraft forums and seems to have set the standard for the Puukko there.

    I managed to get some blades from him and handled them up (you can see these…

    I have been an admirer of Joonas's work for a long time and even moreso recently with me trying my hand at this style of knife.
    Definately the Birtch Bark one due to the blade dimention which is a firm favourite, and knowing the amount of work that goes…

    Never let anyone tell you cannot baton with a hidden tang (at least with mine you can..:thumbsup:)


    My latest Puukko (the one with a Wesinghouse Micarta handle) performed admirably over the last couple of days for some fire and food prep and a whole host of…

    Thank you chaps.
    fluffy the Ironwood one is a bit showy with a slightly bigger handle so would suit you nicely..
    Steve J the bolster fitting on this seems to be a bit of a close guarded secret for many as its hard to find anything online, but its…

    As you may well know I have been a fan of the hidden tang since I started creating.

    The Puukko has held a particular interest for a while now, but recently I have become totally hooked on the design after taking one on a week long trip (my leather…

    Hi Jacks,
    Jim has kindly pointed in in the direction of my tutorial which might help.
    In regards to the tang (tapered v's straight), the tapered makes it easier to fit providing you are not going all the way through the handle and peening the end. If…

    I would be interested in how the government plan to control this. For instance, you could pick out a knife online and then order it over the phone. Not strictly an 'online sale.'
    There will be loopholes, just like the tax system..
    We are a resourceful…
