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.
