Blade from Brisa in Finland, this is the "Nessmuk" style of blade named after George W. Sears, pen name "Nessmuk".
Sears was an early pioneer in writing about bushcraft, calling for going to the forest "not to rough it, but to smooth it". His book is available for free online and considered a "must-read" by many of us who go to the bush to enjoy a few days of quiet, stoking a fire and holding down a log.
The Brisa Nessmuk is a full-tang, carbon steel blade in 80CrV2, hardened to 59 HRC. The blade is 3.8 mm thick, 25-35 mm high and has 125 mm of blade length. Total length including handle is 235 mm. The handle has holes for 1/4" corby bolts and 1/4" lanyard tube. The blade is razor sharp and shaves hair off your leg straight out of the box.
This high-quality kit is 80% completed.
Work required is to glue on the scales to the blade using Epoxy glue. In some kits the red spacer material is already glued to the scales, and in some kits this come as a loose item. If it comes loose in your kit, drill holes for the bolts and glue the spacer material to the handle scales using Max Strength Epoxy (Araldite). When the glue is dry, the spacer material can be cut to fit the handle scales using a sharp knife or file.
Attach scales to blade with Max Strength Epoxy.
Securely screw down the Corby bolts, then file or grind off the bolt heads sticking above the handle scales.
Then sand the scales and finish them with oil, dye, wax or similar to seal them for improved durability.
The leather sheath is ready to use, in thick, brown oxe leather.
