The traditional Lapland Puukko is the all-purpose utility knife of the Sammi people. As a nomadic people in a harsh environment, they have refined the style over centuries until there is nothing superfluous. The elegant result is a real demonstration that form follows function. The classic Nordic blade is narrow enough to penetrate, has a straight section for slicing, and enough curve at the tip for light skinning chores. The wide, flat pommel allows the use of the off hand to add force to the point. The deep leather sheath is an indication of how serious a lost knife can be in the wilderness. The sculpted handle of arctic birch gives excellent control for the draw strokes that are favored when the hands are gloved or numb with cold.

The large size is over 9 1/2" overall. It has a blade about 5" (13cm) long, .88" wide, and .119" thick. The sheath and knife weigh just over 6 ounces. This one might be better for those with larger hands.
