The Junki is the smaller knife of the famous Helahoito set. This black Junki has a painted curly birch handle, nickel silver ferrules, and a polished carbon steel blade. The blade is lightly inscribed with the Iisakki Järvenpää signature.
The sheath is nicely detailed with stamped and stained artwork, it contains a plastic liner to prevent the very sharp blade from slicing through, and it has a small snap-clasp to attach to your belt loop or purse.
The detail is great and all-around this is a wonderful little package!
