Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson has always admired the sleek lines and dependable, highly functional blade shape of the classic Puukko. Ever since our inception in 1980, this classic Finnish hunting, and utility knife has never been far from his thoughts. Over the years, we have released numerous versions of the Puukko, and now, in a design collaboration with custom knife-maker Andrew Demko, Lynn is proud to introduce a new folding Puukko-the Finn Wolf! Taking the classic Puukko as inspiration, Andrew Demko brought his engineering genius to a new, hard-working folding knife. Thin, super lightweight, easy to carry and even easier to use, this modern EDC (Every Day Carry) knife is perhaps the perfect "everyman" knife.

The knife I received was extremely stiff and I had to oil it and work the action for quite a while to get it to open manageably easily although the action still locks up very tightly
I would look elsewhere if I were looking for a self defense knife, this knife doesn't deploy quickly.
If you use flat sharpening media as I do you'll have to remove the thumb stud to sharpen or strop the blade correctly but it's slotted to make removal fairly easy.
I picked this up for $30 on Amazon and it is a steal at that price. I am wanting to by a few more of thesr to put in my truck and with my tools and fishing boxes.
A couple things to note, when I first got it I had a hard time closing the blade. I had to press hard on the lock to get it to disengage. After a while it did loosen up. It's pretty easy now. Also sharpening it will require taking the thumb studs off, but that's only a minor concern.
Over all the knife has held up well to daily EDC tasks, opening boxes, small cutting tasks, etc.
While 4X the price of a plastic handled Mora, there aren't many true Scandi-Ground pocket knives anywhere near this price point, and even those are nowhere near the lock strength of the Cold Steel Triad.
Yet this strong knife isn't perfect. Unlike the fine and hand-filling wooden handles of it's truly Scandinavian competitors, the Finn Wolf has an OD Green Griv-Ex handle that is a bit too thin in girth for long, hard use. Blade steel is Japanese AUS8A, which when heat treated properly is just fine for an outdoors use knife, as would be the 12C27 of Eka and Helle; Enzo ups the steel ante with D2 and S30V, but again its the hard use LOCK that sells me on this, plus the reasonable price.
The blade comes VERY sharp. Works well for feather-sticks, stripping; back of blade works with ferrocerium (firesteel). I've batoned kindling size wood (less than 2" with ease and no degradation of the lock or blade or sharpness. Loose the thumb stud... this isn't a tactical knife, but an outdoors knife, and can easily be opened with two hands - the stud interferes with sharpening and slicing through materials, too. I've removed the pocket clip for that matter - I prefer a short lanyard, and generally this will ride in a sheath (Maxpedition Single, Foliage) along with a short ceramic rod and a segment of fatwood and Firesteel.
I love it as it is, but if it had a more hand filling handle, even of GrivEx, it would be even better.
(FYI: Other Scandi-Ground folders: Eka Swede 88 and S8; Enzo Birk 75 and PK70; Helle Skala and Dokka - listed in increasing $$)
This is not a product in that price range but everything they put their name on is quality. At any rate - I can hardly believe the few negative reviews that have been written. I would not let those slow down a purchase of this knife. The materials are not the finest money can buy but they aren't the cheapest either. The workmanship and attention to detail are key here - like all Cold Steel products.
This knife is not designed as a flic - open knife. It is a folding knife designed to have the stability of a fixed blade knife. Cold Steel's TRI-Ad lock does an amazing job toward this end. I have other knives from Cold Steel that feature this locking system including the "Esparza" I mentioned above. All of these knives are a little harder to close. Hint: push down in the notch as far back away from the blade as possible to gain the advantage. However, if for some reason you do not have average strength in your hands you might look for another design that would suit you better.
