I've got some pretty cool and collectible knives for sale this week, so please be sure and take a look at my other items before you go. Quality of this knife is off the charts good, with an ebony wood handle, brass pommel and tang, with a stainless steel blade. The lines of this knife appear to be possibly Japanese upon first glance, but Hackman is a Finnish company.
The designer, Tapio Wirkkala, often used a Puukko style knife in his daily tasks, and eventually designed this knife as part of his body of work. This piece is in good condition.Most notable issue being a little wear in the finish on the top part of the handle of the knife, probably from thumb placement there, and a missing loop of leather from the sheath. Blade is in great shape.
I haven't touched it to clean it up or anything so it's got what light wear it came with. This knife would have been used for hunting purposes or even in a kitchen. This knife feels very well-balanced in your hand.It's one of those things that feels "natural" when you're holding it. Please see photos for the best idea of condition.
