    Bark handled puukko and traditional sheath.

    Just recently recieved this puukko from a friend who made it with birch bark I harvested and sent him.

    It needed a good sheath, so I decided to try my hand at making a very traditional back sewn Scandinavian sheath with hand carved wooden lineer.
    I think it matches the character of the knife well.

    Let me know what you all think.

    A sheath as they should be for these knives.
    Well done :-)

    Glad it meets with your approval Rune, I researched the traditional sheath styles for a while, but info on Scandinavian knives is a bit jumbled here in the U.S.

    Ah always had a soft spot for these knives. I haven't had the pleasure to use a bark handle yet but they are purdy. Nicely done on the knife and especially the sheath

    Your sheath is quite similar to the one on my Grandfathers Geilo knivfabrikk "Rover" knife.

    I made a write up on it for the forum with pictures here: http://www.naturalbushcraft.co.uk/fo...dfathers-knife

    Actually sitting with that knife in front of me now. It's one of my favourite possessions :-)

    That's a great knife, and the story makes it all the better.

    Is the sheath wood lined???
    Most more recent Scandinavian knives I've seen have plastic liners, but it seems to me that that one might be wood since its older.
