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
Clean the catches of anglers and hunters
