Three Laplander knifes. "Lapin leuku" in Finnish. I have used birch bark and curly birch in the handles. The handles have been treated with tar oil.

I'm a Finnish knife making hobbiest from Finland. In these pages you can find pictures of my knifes. I buy the blank knife blades from knife factories and that's where I start my hobby making a handle for the knife by using different kind of materials from wood to antler, acrylic etc. To mention some blades and knife brands that I have customized... Roselli, Enzo, Helle, Lauri, Fällknifen, Polar, Puronvarsi, Karllson, Mora, Anssi... Mainly my works are scandi type knifes but fulltang knifes will do fine, too.
After finished the knife I start making the sheath. The sheat is most demanding and time-consuming work in knife making. There are lot of little details in knife making but also with sheath making. I could make a list of more than hundred stages to finish the knife and a sheath for it.
Please look at some sample pictures about knifes that I have made. I have got experience of hundreds of custom knifes and delidered them to all the continents in the world. Feel free to comment and enjoy what you see!
