Thumbs up The Sami Knife.



Advertise Here

This is hands down one of the best outdoors hunting knives ever buildt. It's a standard issue item for the Norwegian Army, even their special forces. Today, the StrÝmeng family, located in the "capitol" of the Laplander people, Karasjok, is one of the best and well known makers of this legendary knife.

The StrÝmeng family began their knife-making operation in Karasjok towards the end of the 18th century. Ever since then, the family has been taking the tradition from generation to generation. Knifemaker StrÝmeng is one of very few knifemakers left which still produce knives for Sami people.

The site says carbon steel; any references in english that might tell more about the steel and the treating process they use? Reason I ask is that I've deployed with Norwegians, in northern Norway for a NATO exercise, and they all had those knives. I was curious how you'd keep a carbon knife in a leather sheath from rusting up fast in that environment.

If I remember right I think Ragweed forge sells Stromeng. Also a good way to keep a knife from rusting is regular use. Thats if there is enough tasks to merit the use.

I'm pretty fond of Norwegian or Scandinavian knives. I have three or four in my collection. I Googled "Sami Knife" and found several pictures but this one seems to represent the name:

maybe a mail to Brusletto will give you an answer.

Think there's a person in Maine, or thereabout who sell them, not sure. You might also send them an email directly and ask, they might sell one to you directly from Norway.

In regards to the steel in these knives, i have heard that in the seventies and prior, they used steel from heavy duty truck spring blades, but i don't think they do that anymore.

Nice collection,I love Scandinavian blades and the Samii culture.

Swedish pack-saw,Hultafors classic Forrest axe from Sweden[esb 1697],1950 marttiini leuku sent to me by a Finnish friend,Harry J marrimaa puukko knife from Finland.

Also you can see a Kuksa made from birch and Samii sewing kit made from bone.

I have the black one, that the special forces use. I love it! Its a knife that can open cans, you can use it to chop down small (wrist) sized trees! True, i have done it. It takes a little more time, and i would rather use a axe, but then again, where did i leave that axe now... way over there? Sight...

I have even tried to cut stone (by accident!) and the knick in the edge it got its alot smaller than what my cold steel heavy machete got by cut'n wood! You have to clean the blade and handle that it can rust, but oil it now and then and it shouldn't be a problem.

The knife is... Forged? Not sure about the word, but its hammered out and not cast/meltet in a form. Before they used volvo springs and handforged them, but its a more industrial process now.

www.XXL.no is a Norweegian site and its the company i cot my knife from. Not so sure if they ship over seas tought, and i cant check right now because my computer just trows around error messageses when i try to go to their side! argh! Or you could just take a vacation in Norway.

I always wanted a Leuku ever since I first seen SaraDreaming getting one as a gift then Tactical did a video on one Snake gave his as a gift too, when I inquired Snake suggested Knife Heaven but it was in Europe but then I found out Ragweed Forge carried them out of New York at a great price so I got the trio I learned that Stromeng for a production knife was one of the best, so I got the KS-9, KS-5 and tge STAK (Bhuku) a 3 1/2" blade in Sandvik 12c27 Stainless with fancy handle it's a Beaut, so far so good, the Leuku is Carbon and hold's a decent edge as the 12c27 Stainless it's the same stainless that Mora uses on their knives, it's defenetly a light set of knives but I'm very careful about what size wood I baton with my Leuku, by comparison my BK-9 is just a little thicker blade, and baton's much better since the saber grind has a relief edge that helps it to split wood better but then the thinner blade on my Leuku KS-9 bites very deep and clean when I chop reasonable size trees like mentioned wrist size it does great for a lighter knife, although it won't replace my Rodent Rucki as my Summer Long knife for the brambles I need to cut my way through or to clear a camp, but I don't have a problem building a shelter or to cut down wood for a nice cup of coffee on the open fire, I don't use the KS-5 that much I seem to use the STAK more but it's a nice knife as a slicer in camp for making traps and is very light to carry too, I think their wood up North is a little softer than ours, so my heavier use blades and my most often go to knives are my Rodent-9, Rodent 7, and my Ratmandu, now because of their performance I had a robust tactical Rodent 6 Modified by thinning the blade and the top gaurd taken off its still robust but alot lighter and I can slice some nice curl's with it, it's like a Beefy Ratmandu on steriods and becoming one of my Fav's, but not to take anything away from my Stromeng KS-9 Leuku it's a fun knife to use, but in a survival situation my Swamp Rat Rodent-9, or my Rodent-7 would be preferred ( even though I have the Busse A.S.H.B.M. LE and the N.M.F.S.H. ) I'm just use to a full tang.

Brusletto
karesuando
Marttiini
Lapin Puukko
Kainuun Puukko
Helle
Roselli
Kellam
KPP - Kauhavan Puukkopaja
Paaso

Some less expensive, the others of far better quality.
