Aleksandr Afonchenko is a young maker from the Ukraine. Known for his EDC, Bushcraft and Hunting designs as well as his attention to detail, this example of his work showcases his talent. 

 This is Aleksandr’s popular Hi Tech Puukko – a knife that blends Traditional and Modern

The Hand Ground blade on this Afonchenko Puukko was crafted from High End Crucible Particle Metallurgy CPM 3V 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 has a Acid & Stonewashed Finish with a Near Full Height Flat Grind and a Hollow Ground Full Length Swedge. Look closely and you will see the Handle also incorporates a Bow Drill Socket for Survival Fire Craft.

The Handle on this Aleksandr Afonchenko Puukko was crafted from a Single Piece of Thick Natural Linen 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. 

 The profile of this Afonchenko Puukko is immediately recognizable to any student of blade History, this is of course an updated rendition of the Finnish / Scandinavian Puukko.  This style of knife has been the preferred choice of Scandinavian Hunters and Bushcrafters for generations. Aleksandr does excellent work and once this knife is Sold it will be several months before I can get another.
