Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Pekka Tuominen Lil’ Nilakka

I actually got to see this little folding puukko last year, when it was shown as a concept model. This production sample of the Lil’ Nilakka was a cool gent’s folder. It was a bit hard to operate for me left-handed, but it is an appealing design. The blade was very sharp and with no guard to speak of, I’ll have to be careful not to cut myself when I finally own the production version.















Overall Length: 14 cm / 5.51 inches
Blade Length: 6 cm / 2.36 inches
Blade Thickness: 3 mm / 0.11 inches
Weight: 81 grams / 2.85 ounces

    What is the handle material? Is it ivory G10? It’s a beautiful knife.

    It’s very heavy for it’s size. Kinda like the Kopa’s were. I had to sale mine because it was too heavy, like a little tank in my pocket.

    Aluminum spacer, skeletonize liners, thinner blade, might fix it.

    Love it if someone made a nylon spacer for it, and unload all of the weight and rust potential.
