Being a newbie to bushcraft, I am looking at buying my first knife and was hoping you guys could give me your opinions.
I have read lots and lots of threads about the frosts mora / clipper knives but frankly I am not too keen on a plastic / rubber handle and would prefer a traditional looking knife even if a bit more expensive.
The knife I am considering is made by Lapin Puukko. I has a blade of 4 1/8", and is 8 1/2" long overall. Apparently it is a stainless steel blade which is about .121" thick and hardened to 59 on the Rockwell C scale and costs 40 euros. I cannot find anymore information than that so if anyone knows what kind of steel it is, etc all info would be very useful.
Is this a good knife suitable for a newbie? Are there any other more traditional looking options you experts would recommend?
