Price : 54.99 USD with the sheath - $30 with no SHEATH
Leather Sheath – plastic insert – double folded leather
Excellent seams and stitching
Snap retention – when walking around camp, it doesn’t have to be snapped – tight enough to keep it secure
Leather belt loop
High scandi grind
Rubber texturize handle
Tacky. Doesn’t slide around – tough, has lasted my months of use.
Wet or dry, very secure
I like the palm swell
Lanyard hole - Pummel
Sharp spine – finger nail
Fine quality carbon steel, traditional Finnish puukko blade profile with a slight drop point and a practical grind guarantee a razor sharp knife straight out of the box, and it's easy to maintain too. This is the shorter model, blade length 110 mm.
The Jääkäri (or Jaeger for you foreign devils, the name derives from the backbone infantry of the Finnish army) is nothing fancier than a very simple, very practical puukko knife. The Jääkäri is a buddy you can trust to get the job done and you don´t need to be too careful either, these are built for use.
Steel: Carbon Steel 80CrV2 59 HRC
Blade Length: 4.3" or 110 mm
Blade Height: 1" or 26 mm
Blade Thickness: .157" or 4 mm
Blade Edge: 23 Degree Scandi with micro secondary bevel
Spine Edge: 90 Degree
Handle: Full Tang
Handle Material: Direct Molded Textured Rubber
Overall Length: 9.5" or 240 mm
Weight (w/out sheath) 6.17 oz. or 175 g.
Traditional and proven functional Finnish puukko profile. The thickness of 4 mm makes this a bit more robust than most old timey traditional Finnish puukkos. The grind is a scandi grind with a tiny secondary bevel, truly the most common type of puukko grind.
These knives sale VERY quickly so you will need to move quickly if you want one.
Do I recommend it? Absolutely! It is everything that a good forest knife needs to be.
Sharp. Simple. Rugged. Inexpensive.
If this version is sold out at the time that you are watching it, I have included a link to the other knives that are for sale. There are numerous versions including longer ones which you may want to consider.
This is one of the most impressive knives that I have seen and used in a long time. For the money, I’m not sure if I can think of a better product that would compare to it. In my book, this knife is trust worthy and I would equally consider it just as good as any Mora! That says a lot!
Out of the box it does through sparks and mine has done very well but I have seen comments from others whose spine has been slightly rounded.
