Factory made Puukko knife blades from legendary Laurin Metalli in Finland Zone Hardened series.
Lauri Zone Hardened series have a special heat treatment compared to the normal blades. Whereas normally the whole blade gets hot and quenched, these only the edge gets heated before quench. The result is a staggering 63HRC ad the edge, but the blade is kept from being brittle with a much softer 55HRC spine. Pictured the normal Lauri 95, closeups for comparison incoming.
The Lauri 95 is the most popular Puukko knife blade model, the bread and butter of puukko knife blades. Lengths around 90-100mm are often the Jack of all Trades in medium size knives and for good reason. A large blade can do everything a small blade can, except being light to carry and being less wasteful on materials. Knives evolved with the people that carried them, and the environment of course plays a large factor. Most climates do not require constantly chopping through thick undergrowth so priority on other aspects were adopted. Material was scarce in the old days, and a stick tang configuration knife in this length made sense. Being the tool of choice for the Nordic hunter gatherer society for thousands of years, no one can honestly question the reliability of a good carbon steel Puukko blade.
All Lauri carbon steel blades are made in tough as nails 80CrV2 steel. This steel is a high carbon tool steel by Thyssenkrupp which is technically designated as a spring steel. The black sides on the carbon steel blades are a result of hardening in an open oven. With this technique, a blend of burned oil and other materials are fused with the steel and acts as rust protection. While being very resistant, it will scratch and eventually wear off with time and heavy use. This will leave the blade with a unique patina only a carbon steel knife blade can get.
Lauri blades are made by stock removal from a stamped blank. Knife blades from Laurin Metalli is by far the most used knife blades in the Finnish Puukko industry. No matter if the blade is designed for a small souvenir knife or a workhorse chopping Leuku, blades from Lauri are all meant for use. Carbon steel knife blades HRC: approx. 58, stainless knife blades HRC: approx. 57
All Lauri blades except for the 10-5111 Blank are hardened, sharpened and ready for a handle.
