I was skipping through some old Garcia annuals online and unfortunately can't remember which ones! I spotted one having an advertisement for Garcia accessories, including what I recognized as a Finnish Puukko knife exactly like one I had as a youngster. Now I know my father was totally a Mitchell man, so there is no doubt in my mind the knife came from the same source.

Does anyone here have any information on Garcia offering these knives?

      Gary,
What color or colors was the knife and sheath?? What was the handle made from???  Garcia had several knives made for them that they sold. One is exspensive and the other is relatively cheap. Thanks.

The handle was layered leather, brown with a bone pommel. The blade was a carbon edge, steel layer. The sheath was leather. I have never seen another one and I have no idea what happened to it!

Gary,
Is the knife you're talking about the manufacture of the knife or the "style"??? I have a knife made by JACQUES for Garcia's Sporting Arms Division. Has what you mentioned but with a metal screw on top. The hollow handle holds matches.The knife was made in Brazil.Garcia's CODE:900 0050. They come up for sale at times on ebay. Expect to pay $150 and up for one with box and all. Possibly cheaper for knife and sheath only.

Puukko is a style of Finnish knife. No guard. The handle is layers of either leather or birch bark. I have an early Fiskars fillet knife and a puukko version as well. Both have bronze and hard plastic handles and both were really made for commercial use. This was a good 40 years ago when Fiskars made top of the line knives.
