Finnish knives, commonly bunched all together as Puukko designs, are built solely with the user in mind. The knives are attractive, comfortable, sturdy, and best of all, sharp! EnZO designs, and most Puukkos for that matter, generally feature a Scandi grind, which is like a flat ground blade without the secondary bevel. The edge of the blade generally goes up about half way up the width of the blade, or higher, making for a sharper edge that is also easier to resharpen. EnZO knives are perfect for bushcrafting as well as everyday carry since the handles are perfectly sculpted to provide the best ergonomics possible for every hand size. EnZO knives are some of the highest quality designs we have in the Puukko category and best of all, they won’t break the bank. Check out these awesome new knives from Finland at www.knifecenter.com.

The latest addition to the Spyderco line is the folding Puukko design by Pekka Tuominen, the Nilakka, and what a cool knife this is. Based off the successful Spydero FB28WDP Puukko and adapted for the folding knife enthusiast, the Nilakka is unlike any other knife in your collection. The squared off G10 handle is robust, comfortable in the hand and will not rip up your pockets. The knife buries deeply, opens smoothly and locks up tightly – as with all Spydercos. What makes the Nilakka unique is the zero grind it incorporates all the way down the blade to the cutting edge. There is not a separate bevel on the edge, which makes resharpening the knife more difficult but this kind of grind is unparalleled in slicing performance. You can find this unique folding knife at www.knifecenter.com.

Zero Tolerance has become well known in the knife community for making wide blades of quality materials and near-unbreakable toughness. People around the world have been calling for a slimmer, lighter knife built to the same stout standards and ZT responded excellently with the model 0780. Loosely based off the ZT0160 combat fixed blade, it incorporates features from different Kershaw and ZT knives to make for a useful and ergonomic design. It’s got a solid skull crusher on the end, nicely textured G10 handle scales, and a four-position deep carry pocket clip for secure carry. The 3.5″ S30V blade has sharp, functional jimping on the spine and can be opened with either the flipper mechanism or the tapered thumbstuds that Kershaw uses on the Blur models. The knife has an entirely black tactical look but at 4.0 ounces and very slim in the closed position, it is definitely the right size to have on your person at all times.

The design my be quirky and unfamiliar to most but in no way does that mean that it’s an inferior tool. In the case of the new Zero Tolerance 0750 assisted folder, the unique blade and handle shape actually make it a superior knife for many different applications. Designed to be especially useful for draw cuts and in the reverse grip, the talon shaped S30V blade is an absolutely ferocious cutter. The reverse curved handle is surprisingly comfortable to use normally but it really shines in the reverse grip, locking into the hand very tightly. This makes this knife a superb last ditch tactical defense weapon for more powerful slash cuts and you can find it at www.knifecenter.com.
