Spyderco C221GPWH Lil’Nilakka — Pekka Tuominen’s Lady/Gentleman Folder.

I first had the chance to play with the Son of the Nilakka at the Minimeet. It looks beautiful but the action was not smooth and the handle squarish. I was not really a fan. Especially as I thought my Nilakka full size was…

PEKKA TUOMINEN IRON WOOD PUUKKO – A glimpse at the Northern Woodlord.

As you can notice the blade of the Puukko is not tapered like the Nilakka. It’s a real different animal to work with. More strength to the tip for example.Even if I had never got any issue with the folding version which is one…

SPYDERCO NILAKKA ~ C164GBN – Pekka’s Folding Puukko is a North Star !

Tuscan Raiders #4 – Geometries, Gayle Spyderco Gayle Bradley Junction and whittling.

It has all started when I wanted to review the Spyderco Gayle Bradley Junction. It’s a great design for an EDC fixed blade which can be used for everything. Easy to carry in its pancake constructed bolteron sheath. But the edge was just too…

FARID K2 – No Rest For The Wick2d

This is a big knife but it has found its place in my pocket. The flat design makes it easy to carry and forget in your pocket. Also the single screw clip makes a beautiful print like a much smaller knife. this is deceptive and…
