The SACHA large puukko is the second iteration Wilderness Living Tool. The puukkote is a full size knife for users with medium to large hands. The blade is just over .5″ longer than the standard size puukko, and the handle is proportionally longer as well. The handle is still slender to allow for a multitude of grips.
O1 Tool Steel is a low alloy American carbon steel. It has a proven reputation for edge holding and ease of sharpening. Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) is a tree that grows in the Sonoran Desert of Northern Mexico and Southern Arizona.
The full tang construction means the blade extends throughout the handle. This is the strongest way to construct a knife. The handle is held together by two stainless steel corby bolts and marine-grade epoxy that won’t shatter under strain. The handle features a countersunk lanyard hole and leather lanyard.
A handmade 6oz vegetable tanned leather sheath is included.
