Laurin Lauri Carving 95mm with ricasso Blade

95carvingcarbonwricasso

This would be a good blade for a medium-to-large sized puuko knife. The ricasso (the squared portion ar the base of the blade) is not traditional, but does make it easier to get a tight fit between the base of the blade and the bolster/guard, which is important because you don't want any moisture getting inside your handle.

Below are the detailed measurements of this blade:
  Overall Length: 8.375 inches (21.3 cm)
  Blade Length: 3.75 inches (9.5 cm)
  Blade Width: 0.75 inches (1.9 cm)
  Blade Thickness: 0.11 inches (2.8 mm)
  Ricasso Width: 0.76 inches (1.9 cm)
