    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!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    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!)
