SACHA puukko

$275.00

Description

The SACHA puukko is the standard issue Wilderness Living Tool. The puukko is a lean but stout knife capable of every camp chore. It has just the right proportions for the ideal bush knife.

 

 

Materials

O1 Tool Steel is a low alloy American carbon steel. It has a proven reputation for edge holding and ease of sharpening. Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) is a tree that grows in the Sonoran Desert of Northern Mexico and Southern Arizona. It is extremely dense and stable. When polished to an almost glass-like finish, it is unparalleled in durability and beauty.

Construction

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 American epoxy. The handle features a countersunk lanyard hole. A handmade 6oz vegetable tanned leather sheath is included.

Care for your SACHA puukko

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 shiny and pretty. Each knife comes with a small tub of of Skidmore’s Beeswax Waterproofing. Apply it to the leather and use the sun or a blow-dryer on LOW heat to really melt it in to the leather and your sheath will stay waterproofed and conditioned.

    Amazing knife! I’m a big fan of the puuko style and have owned several over the years but I’ve never found one that has everything I’m looking for…until now. In my opinion, this is the perfect knife. Full tang, one-piece construction is rock solid. Quality steel and wood handle. Sharpens easily with the large bevel. Recently took it for a test drive on a four day walkabout. Blade sharpness was retained after extensive use and edge was easily restored. You can tell this is a great quality knife and the sheath is pretty cool too. As someone who has owned several knives over the years, I’d highly recommend this.
