    Yeah that would work so long as you have it ample time to dry. you could use linseed tun or teak oil, any of them will work.

    Thanks for the kind words fellas. I'm very happy that you are liking them. Keep in mind that these are THIN scandi's compared to a lot of what is out there, so they may not take any crazy abuse, but they will cut like nobody's business. Also keep in mind that the handles are essentially cork, so be mindful if you decide to do any light batoning with them.

    Anyway, here are the first two of the second batch. The other two needed another coat or to of oil so they should be done tomorrow.

    Has anyone with this knife made or had a sheath made for it? If so which style. I saw the previous post about a taco or back sewn. Just wondering if if anyone had a pic of their knife in one.

    I'm still carrying mine in that ratty old sheath I posted on the previous page.

    One thing to consider if it's as important to you as it is to me, is how deep the knife sits in whatever sheath you choose.

    Just as an example, I've owned several traditional puukkos with backsewn sheaths.
    The handles didn't have a birds head, similar to these MP puukkos. They sat so deep in their sheaths that it took two hands to remove. And if my hands were wet, or cold and numb it became a real wrestling match.

    MP carries an American Puukko in a sheath from Badgerclaw leather. It's a pouch/taco style.

    I dunno..... Not really an answer to your question..... But I thought it might help you in your sheath search.

    This is good info and thank you for the reply. I am leaning towards a taco style or simple pouch for this blade. I will post a pic when i get one.

    No doubt. Im actually almost out of birch bark... I think 120sq foot of it is what ive gone through... Choosing the best pieces and all. Ive got more coming though.

    mine has a more slender handle but ive carried it the last couple years in a fold over sheath from John. There is maybe 1 1/8 to 1 1/4" of handle exposed and it works well like that, for me.

    Hey Matt, could you send me the balance due on the knife and blank. I'm headed out of town for a few weeks and want to get you paid out so you're not held up while I'm overseas. Ship at your leisure. Thanks

    Thanks Matt.

    I’d like to get in line when you have any available. Looks like a very handy and capable blade that I need in my MP collection!

    I think I'll be taking a short break fro0 the birch bark knives once these are finished. So far on just these orders Ive cut somewhere around 1600 birch bark squares and individually sized slots with my knife :O but I will be making them again... I think the next ones will be a fancy hard wood.

    Karelian birch block handles would be sweet.

    I’m intrigued with the hollow ground model. Do any of you have yours in hand?

    I have the tanto prototype with hollow grind. It feathers oak like a razor.

    I made a sheath for mine. I hollowed out some mahogany trim scrap I had. Then I carved, glued and sanded it for the liner. I had an old leather mitten for the sheath. D ring from a thrift store belt and a copper rivet. DSC01188.JPG DSC01204.JPG

    That's a killer looking combo. Thank you for sharing. And from scavenged goods!
