Finnish knife (Damascus, Karelian birch)
The Finnish knife is a special type of knife that was widely used in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union in the first half of the XX century. The popularity of knives from Finland (puukko) has led to the fact that Finnish in Russia began to be called almost any knife with a straight blade and a bevel of the butt ("pike"), regardless of the place of manufacture. This model of knife is used for hunting, fishing, and tourism. In this knife, the blade from the butt goes to the cone, which gives the blade a certain elegance.
