Also known as the Leuku of Lapland, the Big Leuku is a blade made from forged carbon steel and is suited for forestry work. Traditionally the Leuku of Lapland was kept in the reindeer sled during travels and was used to build huts. The Big Leuku is more of a striking tool like an axe or a billhook, but thanks to its versatility, it can be used to cut the bones of a large game animal or fillet salmon. The handle is made from birch, coated with linseed oil, ensuring a firm grip even when wet. The Big Leuku comes with a handcrafted sheath made from tanned leather.
