Salmiakki

Salty liquorice

Salmiakki - A variety of liquorice that contains a relatively large amount of ammonium chloride in addition to the liquorice root extract, sugar, and starch or gum arabic that constitute normal liquorice.

The canonical shape for Finnish salmiakki candies is a black diamond-shaped lozenge. This shape is so popular that in Finnish, the word "salmiakki" can sometimes refer to this shape, instead of the candy.

The basic components of a puukko are a hilt and a blade along with a sheath, which can be attached to a belt.

The puukko's blade has a single curving edge and a flat back.

Traditional material for the handle is birch. (also Oak, ash, pine bark, horn, scrimshaw and bone).

Finest puukkos have blades of Damascus steel, and forging a blade using blister steel was considered the hallmark of a master smith.

Usage:
Tool for all kinds of carving
