Sami style knives


I made few "Sami style knives", because I love their shape, history, and also to use them.
But we have to not forget that a "Saami knife" is only made by a Saami man in Sapmi region !

Sami arts and crafts come from an ancestral and alive culture and society.
That's why I care to qualify my knives from "Sami style". This is my way to respect these people and their culture that I admire...
