The Leuku is the traditional camp knife of the Saami (Lapp) peoples. It combines the functions of knife and machete, and is the constant companion of this northern nomadic folk. It is used for gathering firewood, butchering reindeer and similar tasks. These are supplied with curly birch handles and nickel silver trim. They have the same flat pommel as the Lappland puukkos. Again, the leather sheath takes almost the entire knife. The Leuku is about a foot long with a blade just over 7 inches long and 1 1/4" wide. The knife and sheath weigh a bit over 11 ounces.
