The tang goes through the handle and is peened over  on the pommel. The handle is made out of stacked birch bark layers with a Brass Bolster, and pommel for decoration.

It makes for a great lightweight tool carried on your belt

The knife head made of birch birch is comfortable in the hand. It is one of the oldest materials used for knife handles. You get a firm grip on the handle and it doesn't slip in your hand. Tuohik handle does not require special care. The handle is assembled from dozens of tufts, the end of the knife has a brass patch and a rivet that holds the handle together.
