We also have received a limited number of specially designed knives for quill cutting. These knives combine new technological processes with traditional skills. They are handmade by Master Blacksmith Hannu Antila in Finland. The 3.5 cm long blade has one side curved to make a better shape for cutting the quill. The handle is made of Finnish birch burl, which is stronger than the birch hardwood . The handle has a metal insertion to change the balance slightly, so if the knife is dropped it always falls on its handle protecting the blade. The sheath is handmade of reindeer skin.
