14412 - Ahti Puukko Leuku 180

Availability: In stock

EUR84.70
”Ahti-puukko’s blade is made of black and hardened carbon steel, or alternatively stainless steel. Because of the high-quality blade materials, the knives stay sharp and are also easy to sharpen. Dry and clean the knife after use. For example cooking oil will protect the carbon steel blade from rust. Sharpen the knife regularly, a totally dull blade is always more difficult to sharpen. A wooden shaft is not dishwasher-safe. Ahti-puukko is proudly made in the traditional knife-manufacturing town of Kauhava in Ostrobothnia, Finland.”

    Don't buy this knife for hard use. If you plan to do any chopping at all this is not the knife for you. My knifes edge got dented/misaligned only a few months after purchasing, and this was only on a small dead spruce sapling which is a very soft wood. Then I strengthened the edge by convexing it, this however didn't help as the edge rolled and misaligned right after this. In conclusion this knife is either a show piece or a utility knife, not a chopper. Also at it's size it doesn't make sense to carry a knife this large for just utility so for me it is useless.

    I have had this knife for a few months now and love it to death. It looks beautiful, and the fit and finish are pretty good(If one wanted to the finish could easily be increased with some sanding). It has very good ergonomics which allows for a good two and three finger chopping grip. The high scandi carves just as well as my puukko and the knife is balanced so it doesn't feel unwieldy in the hand when carving. Overall it is a great companion to a smaller puukko and a saw. Now for my one complaint, I'm not sure what the intended use of this blade is, but for me I do light chopping on wood up to about 3 cm thick, one day while in the mountains I chopped through a small dead spruce and when i inspected the blade at home before stropping, I noticed a small section of the blade was bent out of alignment. It wasn't rolled or chipped but the cutting edge was bowed to one side. So I'm not sure if I was misusing the knife or anything but it's a bit disappointing to have this happen to my favorite bush blade. Due to the high scandi grind the very edge of the cutting surface is extremely thin leading me to believe that the knife may not have been intended for chopping tasks, or maybe it is one of those tourist leukus I've heard about. So if you are to buy this knife and will use it for occasional chopping I recommend you convex the edge, do this by stropping it on sand paper mounted on your strop, this should increase the edge durability a lot and prevent the damage mine got, or look for a leuku with a lower grind.
