    It has been on loan to the Weston Park Museum here in Sheffield...

    Posted the thread A Parade of Puukko's. Part I.
    Thread

    For those that have seen my recent creations you may be aware of my fondness for the Puukko. After years of fancy-ness with my hidden tangs I have come to love the simplicity of the design along with its many capabilities as an 'outdoor' knife. So with…

    I must admit I really wasn't going to do another in Carbon Fiber. But this devil in diguise material had me back in the shed with a small piece I had left.

    Reading the Bardsters camping thread and wishing I could have been there.
