"A knifeless man is a lifeless man" - an old Finnish saying.  The long Finnish knifemaking tradition goes into every piece of these knives.  Originally from far north of the Arctic Circle - Saami, where the indigenous Finno-Ugric people inhabit.  Saami people typically use two knives; the smaller one can be called a puukko and the larger "Saami knife".  Traditionally, a Saami knife (nejpieh) is made of a mix of reindeer antlers and burrs, with the sheaths being made of burrs and leather.  Naturally these saami knives became symbols of one’s status, and a good way to impress a prospective wife was to give her an intricately decorated knife.  Nowadays many Saami women wear small knives as alternatives and additions to wedding rings.

This Saami Knife Kit comes with real character from Finland while reliable that was tested in the harshest Arctic climate.  For the more adventurous knife making, it will allow the owner a glimpse into the Finnish craft of knife making.  Every piece of this DIY kit is well built, razor sharp and perform faultlessly in the field.  It contains all you will need to construct a fully functioning quality sheath knife.  Now you can enjoy a flavour of the processes that go into making such a beauty with this knife kit.   In order to make a Saami knife handle, you’ll need to cut your antler into a number of pieces (supplied in the kit), which you then slowly attach to the blade – this process involves cursing using a knife and drill, and then finally superglue the pieces together and leave them for a week to dry up before polishing.
