Fin­nish Trio

Knives Illustrated - - Gear Up -

Wilder­ness tools are viewed as a set to com­plete build­ing projects in camp, as well as hunt­ing. The “one tool to do ev­ery­thing” men­tal­ity doesn’t ex­ist to the Finns. They rely on a whole tool sys­tem that con­sists of a saw, puukko knife and axe of some kind. In an es­tab­lished camp, a larger axe is usu­ally kept along with a larger bow saw, while a woods trav­eler gen­er­ally fa­vors a fold­ing saw, smaller hatchet and a puukko. This as­sures the right tool for each task.
