This knife was one of the last I received from Aleksandr before Putin declared War on the Ukraine
This is new design by Aleksandr – a Dwarf Hi Tech Puukko – a knife that blends Traditional and Modern
The profile of this knife is immediately recognizable to any student of blade History, this is of course an updated rendition of the Finnish / Scandinavian Puukko. The Tang on this Afonchenko Puukko is Dovetailed into the handle and also incorporates a Bow Drill Socket for Survival Fire Craft
The Hand Ground blade was crafted from High End N690 steel and given a Cryogenic Quench. This steel has properties that make it unique among modern steels; it excels at Toughness and is widely known as a Superior Performer. It has a good amount of Carbon and a Higher Chromium and Vanadium content which puts it at the top of the Stainless Category.
The Blade on this Afonchenko Puukko has a machine satin Finish with a Near Full Height Flat Grind and a Hollow Ground Full Length Swedge.
The Handle was crafted from a Single Piece of Micarta. Given a Custom Oval Hand Filling Shape, easily indexed due to the smaller area on the bottom and a Thicker grip on the Top.
This style of knife has been the preferred choice of Hunters and Bushcrafters for generations.
