Tommi Kit 125 with Handle Materials

Kit for making a traditional Finnish "Tommi" consisting of

  • Brisa Tommy 125 Carbon Steel Blade
  • Handle Block in Curly Birch
  • Brass bolster and (optional) butt cap
  • Vulcanised spacer materials

Note the recommendation from Brisa to add a micro-bevel on this blade to strengthen the edge before use:

"The Tommi knifeblade line is our developement of the traditional Finnish Tommi knifeblades. The grind high goes to zero. This will mean the knife edge is quite delicate.For improving strength it is receommended to do an initial shaperning to create a micro bevel before use."

The Tommi blade is 4.5 mm thick at the spine, with 125 mm of blade length at about 22.5 mm high. Total length including the tang is 245 mm. The blade is in C60 Carbon Steel with a Scandi ground edge that goes to true zero, creating a very sharp and thin edge. For "rougher" use, this edge will benefit from a light sharpening before use, to create an additional "micro-bevel" which will take off the thinnest part of the edge.

This is a stick-tang kit and uses these instructions: http://creativeman.com.au/how-to-completing-a-scandi-knife-kit/
