Really like the look of the Lapin Puukko Camping Knife. Anyone have any experience or opinions on it? Pictures, especially in-hand shots would be nice.

Thanks - Pat.

The knives by Lapin Puukko are simple rough made ones. I guess they are reliable but as I fear the tangs don't protrude they are not for me. Have seen and handled them at the shop but I want more quality than this plain rough make.

Just my taste however.

I've never used nor handled a Lapin puukko before. But I just wanted to add my opinion on what foxhunter said about the knife not having a potruding tang.

I have a Karesuando knife that also does not have a potruding tang, and I have never felt the knife inadequate for cutting jobs. I feel that for as long that you don't use the knife in batonning, it should be fine.

The price point of the knife suggests that it might indeed be poorly finished, but leaves you the opportunity to do some work on it to make it more your own (sanding the handle a bit, polishing/reprofiling the edge,...)

It all depends on what you want out of the knife really... As long as you keep it sharp, it will cut

regards,
Willem

I have one. The handle is a bit skinny for my taste...somewhere on the order of a #1 Mora. The blade is a Lauri made 95mm...same as the one on the Ahti Metsa in the photo.

@ wiggles
I'd say with 100% confidence a Karesuando is the
MUCH better choice over a Lapin Puukko.

And about the non protruding tang
In the wood I am feeling a bit underequipped with such a blade. As one never knows what comes along.
So there is at least a knife with protruding tang in my rucksack if not on my belt.

If I go on trips where I feel that breaking my knife would mean serious trouble, I'm definitely going for a protruding tang (preferably even fulltang) knife. But for short trips, dayhikes, fishing, woodcarving, etc, a decent half tang scandi will work fine IMO. That being said, I always carry a spare knife
