Roselli knives are designed by Heimo Roselli, who began making knives in 1976 and researched ancient bladesmithing techniques to rediscover the secret for making ultra-high-carbon steel. The Roselli knives are highly functional with little to no extra polish.
The Leuku is the traditional camp knife of the Sami, who are indigenous to the far northern region of Scandinavia. It is used for butchering game, building shelter, skinning, and chopping wood. These are large, serious knives designed for serious wilderness chores.
Lighter than its bigger sibling, the Small Leuku is a versatile forest tool with a slightly more knife-like characteristic. Still, an impressive ‘supertool’ in the outback and won’t back down from any job the wild throws at it.
The blade is made from forged carbon steel and the handle is cut from curly birch, coated with linseed oil – which ensure a firm grip, even when wet.
Comes with handcrafted sheath of light vegetable tanned Finnish leather.
Crafted, sharpened and perfected by hand in Harmoinen, Finland.
