Wilderness Iron Works Full Tang Puukko Knife
Forged by hand, especially for us, by Robert Burns.
Robert burns grew up camping in the outdoors of Pennsylvania, eventually becoming a wilderness survival and primitive skills instructor. Robert also began training as a blacksmith at the age of thirteen. At 19, he began to incorporate designs from his bush craft experience into his knives and axes and has been producing high quality tools for the outdoors ever since. He is a member of the American Bladesmith’s Society and is pursuing his Journeyman Smith ranking. The description that follow on this page are in his own words. Each piece is a functional piece of art made to work and be at home in the outdoors.
When designing this knife, I wanted to capture the simplicity, functionality, and beauty of the traditional Finnish Puukko knife. I wanted to take that traditional knife design and make it more robust by adding a full tang in addition to incorporating local materials like Minnesota Birch burl for the handle.
