A Puukko for your Thoughts

This is a (handmade, modern version of a) Puukko. 

A small traditional Finnish general purpose belt knife.

A thing of beauty, and practicality.

It was created – forged – by Muspell Forge

In Finland, receiving a puukko as a gift is considered an honour, the idea being that the presenter is giving the recipient a tool which is essential for both woodworking and preparing food and as a weapon and that the presenter takes into account the well-being of the recipient.

I gifted it to Mr E for surviving our first grade Taekwondo black belt test earlier this month.
