Laurin Little Leuku 90mm with ricasso Blade

90littleleukucarbonwithricasso

This blade would make a smaller leuku knife, which is typically used for heavier-duty chores or skinning. 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.

  Overall Length: 8.75 inches (22.2 cm)
  Blade Length: 3.625 inches (9.2 cm)
