War Time Cardboard Sheath


These sheaths were made between 1940 and 1948. During war time the leather was used for more important items thus the creation of the cardboard sheaths. These were made for a typical 4" blade puukko. The designs on the sheaths, such as images showing grain, burning kaski, which is when the wood is burned to mix in the soil to enrich to grow new crops, and a grain house and well, are those often seen on items that were sold after the war to get funds to pay the war debts. Beautiful stylized images. Finland and Israel are the only 2 countries that have repaid their war debts.
The sheath is quite hard and probably can't fit a knife in it now but is an interesting historical relic. Rust on metal parts.
7.25" long (excluding belt loop)
