    IMO a good and honest puukko with a above average sheath. Nice find!

    Definitely worth $10. I have 4 of these Finnish knives. Three of them were given to me when I was a young boy by our Finnish exchange student every year for Christmas after she left. They are all small and I never ever used them.

    The 4th is a very old one (with a pressed paper sheath). Don't know where I got it but it was heavily used and abused. While it's probably 50 years old the blade is still razor sharp!
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    They hold their edge forever. Ratisbons Auction has one for sale now. They listed it as a "trench" knife but I think that is stretching the truth. Just a great but quirky looking knife.

    My boys go to summer camp near Indian Lake (a mile or so past North River) and my Nephew worked for years at a family camp in Speculator. A great area (but cold in the winter!)
