Introducing the Puukko Design Template:

Embarking on an unconventional journey, I made a pivotal shift from Graphic Design to the captivating realm of bladesmithing. Over a span of 13 years, I dedicated myself to honing my skills, eventually earning the esteemed title of Mastersmith in the American Bladesmith Society. Having crafted knives for an international audience, I am thrilled to impart my knowledge through a series of downloadable PDF knife designs.

Let's dive into the fascinating history of the Puukko, a traditional Finnish knife with a legacy that spans centuries.

History of the Puukko:

The Puukko is not just a knife; it's a reflection of Finnish culture and craftsmanship. Its origins can be traced back to the early days of Finland, where it was an essential tool for survival, hunting, and everyday tasks. What sets the Puukko apart is its timeless design, characterized by a simple, straight blade, a single-bevel edge, and a handle made from materials like wood, bone, or antler.

Historically, the Puukko was more than just a tool; it was a symbol of honor and trust. It was often given as a gift, passed down through generations, and carried by many as a daily companion.
