    The blades are typical hunting blades over here.
    I guess that kind of blades are hard to sell outside of Scandinavia.
    A bit strange because we hunt about the same kind of animals as in North America.
    On the other side it is hard to sell a big full tang knife to the hunters i Sweden.
    Fun to se the difference it the knife culture!:)

    Lovely!
    The Scandinavian ones are very much like the "puukko" knives that I'm used to - but not quite. Is that a traditional style in some part of Scandinavia, or a modern take?

    It is typical Scandinavian models.
    It is the type of knives that most hunters use here.

    Oooooo.... I like them. Especially the top one.

    What did you use for handles? Some look like it could be birch, with a little color added.

    Continuing with my leather woork.
    Finished two with horizontal carrying and two
    in Bowie style or what you can call them.
    Think it is interesting with the contrast between the cape buffalo leather and cow leather. IMG_20191201_131427.jpg IMG_20191201_131520.jpg
