I really like the one by Henry Hilden. Thomas Lofgren is from Sweden, here's a little info about him and his son: http://www.lofgrenknives.com/pages.asp?pageid=16

Here's a custom built puukko by Saku Honkilahti on it's way to me from Finland. The handle is stacked birch bark. He hand forged the blade and made the sheath.

Many thanks for the article on the Lofgrens. Its great learning Thomas has become a considerable force in Sweden's cutlery scene. I will now make it a point to attend the next Pasadena show and look him up.

I like your Saku Pukko. I'm no expert but it appeals to me as having beautiful, clean lines.

In a few minutes I'll be heading out the door, but I won't forget to try for those sheaths ASAP.

Here obviously are the three sheaths. The left is from Lofgren; the center is from Hilden; the right is from Burrichter.

Thank you Bill. ::tu:: How long does it take a package to travel to Pennsylvania from Finland? He sent it Sunday. ::groove:: I'll send some pictures when I have it in hand.

My photos seem to have disappeared. Anyone have any ideas? I know the pictures weren't great, but gosh!

That's a really nice knife from Saku. Have you received it yet? I'd appreciate hearing your impressions, often times the knife is even better than what pictures show.

Yes, I got it last Monday. The puukko looks good in the photos but it is really nice in hand. Saku did beautiful work on the knife and sheath and I'm very happy with it. I think the knife is much nicer than the pictures can show. :D
