Most Scandinavian knives don't have finger guards, which is why the maker named this the "children's knife," although honestly it's the perfect size for carving and whittling, and the guard allows you to apply more force without worrying about your fingers slipping onto the blade. The handle is made from curly birch wood, sanded, oiled, and polished to a smooth finish, and has a hooked pommel to help you maintain your grip. The full-length tang is evident by the brass nut on the pommel, giving this knife added durability.
The sheath is nicely detailed with stamped and stained artwork, has a snap closure to keep the knife securely in place, and contains a plastic liner to prevent the very sharp blade from slicing through.
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.
