Here is an old puukko style knife with carved wood handle and scabbard. The blade looks Finnish to me but carved wood for handle or sheath is unusual.
The sheath (scabbard) is made from 2 pieces of wood, carved very thin at the top edge and then thicker below where it holds the blade. Metal tip on sheath is missing.
Anyone familiar with this style ?

I'm not familiar with that type of knife...but that is one very cool looking one! What is the overall length on that?

OAL is 7" which is a common size for a Finnish puukko

What a fine knife ! The puukko is simple in design, all knife, nothing extra. Use one and be amazed at how it cuts and how the blade is always in the right position, ready to cut. Once you have used a puukko all other fixed blades you have ever used seem 'lesser'. Puukkos are in a league of their own and this one Calvin is a BEAUTY.
Are you planning to use it ?

I haven't decided on that, Roland; it does need a light honing to be usable; I agree on your thoughts regarding these puukos. They are all knife and nothing more. I have two from Boris Krylov that he handles from imported blades and I am definitely using one of those. This one is so pretty I will probably not use it.
