Spyderco Nilakka Folding Puukko Knife
We have received our first shipment of the NEW Spyderco Nilakka Folding Puukko designed by award-winning Finnish knifemaker Pekka Tuominen. The Nilakka is a modern EDC Finnish puukko folding knife. The Nilakka's handle is built on a framework of full-length stainless steel liners that also provide the structure for it's Walker LinerLock mechanism. The liners are joined by a stainless steel back spacer and covered with machined G-10 scales that create the distinctive diamond-shaped cross section that is a hallmark of traditional puukko design. Bead blasted to ensure a secure grip, the scales are extremely ergonomic and allow easy orientation of the edge by tactile sense.
One of the unique things which sets this knife apart from others is the premium CPM S30V stainless steel blade which features full-flat-ground bevels that flow smoothly into a zero-ground cutting edge. This unique form of Scandinavian-style ("Scandi") grind offers exceptional edge geometry for superior low-drag cutting performance. It is accented by a subtle swedge on the spine of the blade and Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole. In the closed position, the blade is almost completely contained within the handle and the Round Hole nests in a scalloped recess in the obverse scale. This makes the knife extremely trim, yet still allows it to be easily opened with one hand. A butt-mounted deep-pocket clip supports right-side, tip-up carry, and makes the Nilakka a true "pocket puukko" that is ideal for everyday carry.
