The original Terävä Skrama is a remarkable large knife in terms of its functionality and its affordable price. The Skrama chops, splits, carves, and generally just makes itself handy in the backcountry. It is a favorite of mine and I highly recommend it. But, maybe you’ve looked at the Skrama before and thought that you would prefer something just a bit smaller. The new Skrama 200 may be just the ticket.
The original Skrama 240, with its hand-and-a-half grip and impressive 240mm (about 9.4″) long blade, comes in at 17.93″ overall length. As you might guess from the name, the new Skrama 200 has a 200mm long (7.87″) blade, with a more traditional one-hand grip, has a 13.77″ overall length. It weighs 150 grams less than the original at 320 grams. Both are ground from super tough 80CrV2 steel, feature a 2″ portion of the blade near the handle with a finer 25-degree edge for finer work, and have an overmolded grip.
The Skrama 200 should be easier to pack while still offering a lot of capability and, like the original Skrama 240, it does it all without the high price. The Skrama 200 and the rest of the excellent Terävä line of knives is available at Varusteleka.com.
