The Leuku is a large knife carried by various indigenous groups in and around the European side of the Arctic Circle. Used for everything from cutting shelter poles, preparing firewood, and butchering game, it is an indispensable tool.
The blade for this knife was handmade in Finland from 80CRV2 high carbon steel. It features a Scandinavian grind that has been hand-honed to a razor's edge, and given a blued finish.
The handle features a solid brass bolster, and a highly decorated grip, hand-carved into the likeness of a raven, crafted from blackwood and purpleheart.
Comes with a handmade, heavy duty leather sheath that has been intricately tooled and features a dangler belt loop.
