Matched Leuku & Puukko set

Up for show today (and it's looking for a new home too) is my matchin Leuku & Puukko set. Leuku is a larger camp knife used by the Sami people in Lapland. It has traditionally larger handles, a wider, longer and thicker blade but is not quite the same as a parang in application or blade dynamics - it's basically a bigger knife to handle heavier and larger chores, compared to the puukko. The Laplanders rely on good tools to see them through harsh long winters. Those long winters are no joke.

Handles are African Wenge with an awesome surface texturing, hardware is stippled brass and hammered brass for the collars. It will age very nicely.

The Leuku features a handforged 9" Anti Makkinen blade, scandi grind and razor sharp of course. The Puukko features a forged 'sanmai' or sandwich blade by Karlo Ban with a silversteel core (that's great stuff). More of a droppoint than the typical puukko profile.

Both knives were made by Barbudo .

I cannot say better things about the texture of the Wenge handles (and yes, real Wenge doesn't always look like that horrible fake laminates we see adorning the Zen style cabinetry of 10 years ago, lol).

Please contact me if you are keen to take over custody of this set...I'm asking for only 400usd via PayPal, plus fees. (Updated) If I split it up, I'll keep the puukko as that holds some sentimental value to me.

Min shipping from KC is now Usd27. And present exchange rate is USD1:SGD1.33

Prices are going up as compared to 6months ago, I'm not familiar with the model though.

Most of the time, Autosol and some elbow grease would repair it but it all depends on how bad the rust is.

Ah okay. The metal is somewhat greyish in colour, so im not sure if autosol would be a thing to use since its like a metal polish?

can use autosol to remove rust from SS but if you keep polishing, it will give the surface a shine mirror finish.

Try rust removers, vinegar, coke or scrubbing with WD40. Depends on how bad the rust is. Autosol works but polishes the metal. You can go to hardware shops. Basically you want a mild acid to dissolve the rust but not till it etches the metal.

In trying to remove the rust, you are bound to affect the "greyish" metal of the blade.
This is what happened to one of my knives, after I tried various methods to remove the rust, including using Autosol, WD40 and fine grit sand paper, etc.
After removing the rust, the blade's sheen/colour was not uniform. I then soaked the blade in coke for about 12 hours; rinsed with water and dried.
This resulted in a greyish-black patina, which looked good. The patina also protects against rust.

you have more than 100posts so perhaps you can post a pic, you can host it on one of the free photosharing sites - it'll be easier to identify/know how bad the rust looks. When you say 'greyish' - do you mean it is beadblasted (matt) or satin/polished? also, is it carbon steel, stainless steel, an antique, what is the value etc. For antiques, you really don't want to remove anything but arrest the rust. Restoration may hurt its value. There are lots of youtube videos showing the use of vinegar, baking soda etc on rust removal.

Thanks! Not sure if it makes sense but im trying to find food grade mineral oil

Edited: seems like the ikea mineral oil is a safe bet for knife which might be needed for food preparation !
