Handforged Norwegian Tollekniv knife blades
The Tollekniv knife blade 160 from Loen is a very robust blade. The spine measures 5,5mm thick, and gently tapers down to approximately 3,5mm before the ground tip. The tang is also forged down to a similar taper keeping most of the material in the ricasso area where it is needed. As hand-forged blades go, these are quite rustic and are imbued with charisma. These blades are traditionally hand-forged with iron sides, and a high carbon steel core. The core steel is locally produced by Øberg containing 1,2% carbon.
The Tollekniv is the Norwegian adaption of a normal sheath knife. Historically, an everyday carry hidden tang knife in a leather sheath. Often handmade by the user, these knives were a matter of pride and worn publicly. The Tollekniv and Puukko have a lot of similarities, but there are some clear differences.
While not a rule, the Tollekniv is far more often made with a laminated blade compared to the Finnish Puukko counterpart. Joining different grades of steel and iron has been in the core of Norwegian blacksmithing for over a thousand years. It is not a coincidence that Norway is home to most of the Viking era Ulfberht swords that have been found. Over time the technology spilled over from tools of war to every day use items, such as the Norwegian Tollekniv.
Laminated blades offer strengths over single steel blades, but also some weaknesses. A laminated blade uses less material for the core steel, which allows a more expensive and better material to be used. The main drawback is increased labour. Laminated blades are also usually stronger than single steel ones. As the different materials joined have different physical properties, they end up strengthening each other.
Please allow a few mm tolerance as these are handmade items.
