For Sale: Olavi Kempannien Puukko

Post by kootenay joe » Mon Nov 23, 2020 12:46 am

Here is a Tommi puukko made by Olavi Kemppainen who along with his brother Alpo was a fifth generation "Tommi" puukko smiths. It was their great, great, great grandfather who designed and forged the first Tommi puukko. Since then each generation of sons have become knife "Smiths" and have worked in the same shop with the same tools. The heat treatment they use is a guarded secret and the resulting blades are thought to be the Best of All Finnish puukkos.
OAL 8 1/4", handle is 4 1/2", blade is forged non stainless steel 3 3/4", very sharp. Would be an incredible experience to use this Puukko to field dress a deer/elk/moose/antelope. Hide & tissues will part with no pressure on blade.
Sheath has good 'snap in' fit, also made by Olavi.
Likely made in 1990's, never used, exact same condition as when Olavi shipped it out.
This is a custom knife made by one the best Finnish 'Smiths' of all time.
Price: $240 shipped
