I just got back home from an exercise. We had a squad competition and it consisted, among other things, the disassembly and assembly of the Valmet KvKK, a light machinegun in cal. 7.62x39.

First it was taken to pieces and then put back together, it took me 32 seconds.

Agreed. Thanks for the photos. In the 2nd picture... I think I see a Puukko knife strapped/lashed to the soldier's hip. Very appropriate and very cool. I have a "Ranger" Puukko style knife that's outstanding.

Yes,
it´s a "Puukko" style knife. It´s very common for a Finnish conscript to get a Puukko styled knive with engravings when graduating from a military school or class. Reserve officer school or NCO school, for example.

I have that Ranger Puukko M95 also. Known as J-P Peltonen´s Sissipuukko (Ranger knive) in finnish.

Interesting. That's the knife I have... a M95 Ranger. Owning it and using it makes me feel connected to Finland's finest!

It´s a fine knive allright and made of good steel. It can open a catridge box made of thick sheet metal without scratches. It can also be muonted to a finnish combat west´s shoulder harness.

They say that the newer model M07 is better than the 95. I have no experience with it though so I can´t say if it´s true.

I own a M07 as well as the M95. I purchased them both from the following U.S.A. retailer:

http://www.kellamknives.com/index.php?m ... 1_33_83_87

There is actually very little difference in the two knives, apart from the length of the blade. Both have the slightly "tacky" grip. That grip together with the high carbon, hand forged blade is what sold me on them. While I'm not a solder, if I ever had to "deploy" for armed service, I'd take one of the two with me.
