Reindeer depend on lichen for food. Many of the Sámi (Indigenous people who live in the far north of Europe) depend on reindeer. The animals are central to their society and identity.
.
The Swedish forestry industry is threatening the Sámi’s traditional lands by planting vast areas with one type of non-native tree species to turn into pulp.
.
But this type of tree doesn't support lichen. The Swedish Sámi are demanding respect for their right to the land and their right to herd and graze reindeer here. "We do not accept lodgepole pine being planted on our land.”

Which handle design is more efficient at chopping? Straight or curved handle? We are about to find out. All thought the straight handle axe head does weight more and is about 2” longer.
Head weights:
Straight handle 28” - 2.10 lbs
Curved handle 26”- 2.2 lbs

The Sámi knife (Leuku in Finnish) has a long, wide, and strong blade that is suited for light chopping tasks such as de-limbing, cutting small trees for shelter poles, brush clearing, bone breaking and butchering tasks, and is sometimes used as a substitute for an axe for chopping and splitting small amounts of firewood from standing dead trees - an essential ability when all dead and fallen wood is buried underneath many layers of snow. Typical Sámi knives have a blade length ranging from 200 to 450 mm. This one here was made in Finland and my good friend @ahma_osmo helped me pick it out. ↟
