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:

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.
