This looks like a traditional Scandinavian Scout knife, with a guard and a sheath with a snap, but the size of the blade and handle would equally suit an adult as a utility knife, camp knife, or as a hunting knife. The wide belly on the blade also makes this knife ideal for skinning. The handle is stacked leather, countoured and lacquered for a smooth appearance, and the fittings are aluminum.
The sheath is nicely detailed with stamped artwork, in the flat style with stitching and rivets up the sides.
Below are the detailed measurements of this knife. One important note: for best comfort and grip, the length of your middle finger should be similar to the circumference of the handle.
