Yew and Elm Puukko
I was commissioned to make this knife for a young teenage girl, so it needed to have a more slender handle than usual. I chose a 77mm Polar puukko blade and made the handle from yew, with a band of elm, with brown, red and brick red spacers. The section of yew I chose is a part of the wood which doesn’t get used often, where the heartwood meets the sapwood, hence the unusual colours. The neck sheath is 4mm veg-tanned leather and is dyed briar brown.
