Seasons come and go.

Since the previous post autumn has changed to winter. In October I was busy with capercaillie hunting. In November it changes to hunting willow grouse and pine marten. Daylight time gets shorter and shorter. At the moment polar night has started here, meaning we won't see the sun rising above the horizon for a month. We've got a bit over 4 hours so called dayligh, on a cloudy day less, a bit more when the sky is Clear.

Below are some pics from various trips since the previous post. No titles, just appr. in order by date. From early October to the blue light in the beginning of December.


































Timeless Finnish puukko design doesn't change much. A barrel handle in birch bark and brass. Upper is one of the recently made puukkos, lower is my user. Birch bark doesn't necessarily need any treatment, it gets a life-breathing patina in use.


Seasons change, in nature and in life. I've dropped knife making as work, so from now on won't post knives for sale as before. Maybe one or two sometimes, who knows.

With outdoor posts I would only be repeating myself, so that's it for now. Thanks for all the readers!

Maasepänpuukkos for sale. ( SOLD )

New set of maasepänpuukkos ready for sale. If you're not familiar with this type of knives, read the short write up from 2015

Here's few pics of me making similar knives earlier this year:  http://www.hic-sunt-leones.info/nordici-nordic-knives/maasepan-wip/

Like my maasepänpuukkos usually, these have oiled curly birch handle and carbon steel blade with forge finish sides. Semi pointy 80CrV2 tool steel blades have a scandi grind with no secondary. Zero grind is usually popular with green/soft wood carvers etc. Need sharpening more often, but cuts better. If you prefer your blade with a micro secondary, I'll make it on the blade. Brown leather sheaths with birch wood liners for the blade included.

These are the last knives I'll post for sale this year!
