Comes with leather sheath.
The Skrama is a versatile heavy duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters, chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.
- Total length: 430 mm.
- Weight: 525 g (knife only).
- Blade: length 240 mm, width 46 mm, thickness 4,2 mm.
- Edge: 34° for chopping, 25° at the base for finer work.
- Steel: Carbon steel 80CrV2, 59 HRC
- Grip: Moulded rubber, rough texture for a good grip.
The blade is slightly curved, with a hole in the tip for hanging. The back of the blade is flat. Perfect for batoning. The blade is sharpened to two different angles. Near the grip a 5 cm portion has an angle of 25° for whittling and fine work. The rest of the blade has an edge of 34°, which has proven to be excellent for this type of chopping blade.
The handle is designed for a "one-and-a-half" hand grip. The back end gives a good, solid grip for tough chopping action, giving the blows more power, as a bush knife this is what the Skrama is designed for. The upper third of the grip is shaped to give you a good feel for detailed work, such as making firestarters. This is however not a miniature model makers scalpel and not intended as one, but as any self respecting Finnish blade it can be used to carve a proper wooden cock, "Leirikyrpä" as it's known in Finnish military lingo. The knife is rather well balanced, so the heavy blade doesn't cause problems when whittling.
- 2 mm vegetable tanned cowhide with stitched and riveted construction.
- Inside the leather sits the sturdy Skrama plastic liner, a thumb knob on the side of the mouth makes unsheathing easy and controlled.
- 6 cm wide belt loop, fits just about any belt you can find, even those extra wide military types.
- D-ring belt loop lets the knife turn on your belt keeping it from coming in the way when moving about or sitting.
- Snug fitting press stud strap secured the knife properly in its place. When brand new the strap may feel "short", just pull on it a bit or wet it with warm water and it will soon get a perfect length and shape!
- A grommet for a leg tie has been added to the tip.
- And last but not least the sheath does of course have a drainage hole at the very end.

This is my second terava knife. I have never been a fan of big knives but this one has changed my thinking on choppers. Feels great in the hand and so far no shock through the handle when chopping oak. Great edge retention also. If your on the fence go for it!!
