No doubt those puukko style blades carve wood like no other. Not big on exposed tang pommels, but would like to see the functionality foreseen by the designer. Knowing LT wright, I bet it will have a 90 degree spine that will spoke shave wood, scrape bark, and scrape a ferro rod like nobody's business. Good looking knife....somewhat reminds me of the Lagom bush knife, also built by LT Wright. My interest is certainly peaked by this design....!!
