The SACHA puukko now available with a Cotton Canvas Micarta handle in black or natural.
The SACHA puukko micarta is a lean but stout knife capable of every camp chore. It has just the right proportions for the ideal bush knife.
The handle is Cotton Canvas Micarta, which consists of multiple layers of canvas compressed together in a phenolic resin. This gives the handle a woodgrain-like appearance but has the added advantage of providing a grippy surface as the exposed cotton fibers provide additional texture. Micarta is dimensionally stable and provides good grip when wet.
The full tang construction means the blade extends throughout the handle. This is the strongest way to construct a knife. The handle is held together by two stainless steel corby bolts and top quality boat epoxy that won’t shatter under strain. The handle features a countersunk lanyard hole complete with a oil-tanned leather lanyard made from lace intended for wildland firefighting boots.
A handmade Herman Oak premium 6oz vegetable tanned leather sheath is included.
CARE FOR YOUR SACHA PUUKKO MICARTA
Carbon steel oxidizes when exposed to moisture, acids or bases. This is easily removed with fine steel wool or a Scotch-Brite pad. Keeping a light layer of food-safe oil on the blade will protect it, although some oxidation will protect the blade in the form of a patina. The natural oils of your hands will keep the handle conditioned. Each knife comes with a small tub of of Skidmore’s Beeswax Waterproofing. Apply it to the leather and use the sun or LOW heat to melt it in to the leather to maintain the sheath waterproofed and conditioned.
