The Aito Puukko is one of my personal favorites. The handle is built up from stacked layers of birch bark with solid ends of red bronze. There are also bronze and Black fiber decorative spacers. The handle is polished and oiled, rather than Varnished, and is more common. This improves the grip, and is much more comfortable. It’s about 4 1/8” long and fits my small to average sized hand perfectly. It has just enough shape for control without restricting you to any single grip. The blade is unpolished carbon steel of a useful size and shape. It’s about 3 3/8” long, 7/8” wide, and 1/8” thick. The tang of the blade extends the full length of the handle and is visible at the pommel. The sheath has a plastic insert and a brass reinforcing band at the top. The suspension strap is attached to the band with a ring. I can see the whole outfit lasting several generations. The knife and sheath weigh a bit over six ounces.
