The Roselli 5" Leuku is still a handful. The oversized handle would be best used by those with large hands. The leuku is the camp knife of the Sami (Laplander) people. It's used for everything from building shelters and gathering firewood to butchering reindeer. This one has about 5" of blade and almost 5" of handle. The blade is a stout 3/16" (.2" or 5 mm) thick. This contributes to a weight for the knife of about 9 1/4 ounces, or 12 1/4 ounces in the sheath.
