Description
SPFB28WDP: FB28WDP Puukko Fixed Blade by Pekka Tuominen
Spyderco
 
Finnish knifemaker Pekka Tuominen once said "Every puukko is a knife, but not every knife is a puukko." A historically traditional Finnish fixed blade, the Puukko was developed for life in a forested, outdoor environment where woodworking, hunting and fishing are daily chores. Traditionally, a Puukko has a blade with a single curving cutting edge and a at level spine with a rounded wood handle. The level blade spine and lack of choil allow positioning the thumb directly on the spine concentrating force and leverage where it's needed most when cutting. Used for cutting as opposed to piercing or stabbing, Puukkos have no cross-guard or expanded pommel keeping the hand away from the blade giving the knife its fluid and esthetically-balanced appearance. Puukko sheaths are considered an equal component to the knife, designed to protect the blade and its' owner. The Spyderco Puukko carries in a fitted-leather belt sheath that pivots, moving with the body whether standing or sitting. Pekka's Puukko infuses equal parts artistic expression and tool while Spyderco's kicks in a high-tech influence.

Not a Puukko
It is ironic that they quote Pekka's famous line that not all knives are puukot because this knife that is supposed to be a reproduction of a puukko certainly is not one. There are a number of problems with the construction of the knife and sheath that make it not a puukko: 1. Puukot have what is a scandi grind either with or without a microbevel. This knife has a hollow grind. 2. Puukot handles are typically made of artic birch or burl native to Finland. This knife's handle is made of Arizona Ironwood. 3. The sheath is made in the design of a Scandinavian or English bushcraft knife, not a puukko, which have their sheaths sown up the back. 4. This is a nitpick, but the Spydiehole is completely useless. The Spydiehole is useful for the folders and certainly distinguishes their folders, but it has no business being on a fixed blade. 5. Puukot purists would be spitting fire over the knife having a stainless steel blade, regardless of the quality used. 6. While I commend knifecenter for marking down this knife (kudos to you), Spyderco must be out of their minds to be asking $350MSRP for this Taiwan made knife.

Cons: None
Great Knife
It doesn't matter where it's made (Taiwan is actually great quality these days) because the materials are all top quality- US made S30V stainless and Ironwood handles. Also, the fit and finish are impeccable. This is a great deal! and a great knife. I live it.

Pros: None
Cons: None
Nice knife, but way too pricey, even though i love spyderco. I'm not wild about the hole on a fixed blade either.
