Pekka Tuominen 95 mm (~ 4") silversteel blade,
Ebony wood handle, silver bolsters
Here are some pictures of my Tommi puukko... ( my English is terrifying, but in this case Tommi is the right spelling, instead of Tommy :) ) Searching I-net you can find, that knife smith Kalle Keränen studied knife making in Fiskars 1867-1868. His teacher was English smith Thomas Woodward from Sheffield, who taught him to the latest metal-working techniques, and in favour of his teacher these superior puukko became known as "tommi puukko".
Pekka Tuominen is one of the most famous Scandinavian bladesmiths (to say nothing of Jukka Hankala after he stop taking orders and started to color his hair) :)
Two year ago it was easy to find Pekka blade. Today his waiting list is so long, that it takes him about an year to complete the order.
And, guys, - - - it cuts like hell!
