Nordic Her­itage Mart­ti­ini Knives

Knives Illustrated - - Gear Up -

Mart­ti­ini knives are man­u­fac­tured in the Arc­tic Cir­cle. To­day they are a com­bi­na­tion of gen­er­a­tions of crafts­man­ship and mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, which cre­ate knives that are not only sharp, but also per­fectly rep­re­sent the beauty and tough­ness of the North. The knife is known as a “puukko”—the Nordic knife.

It all be­gan in 1928 in the land of dark Arc­tic win­ters and the mid­night sun, when a black­smith, Janne Mart­ti­ini, de­cided to es­tab­lish a knife fac­tory in Fin­nish La­p­land. With the user in mind, he be­gan to cre­ate beau­ti­ful, high qual­ity util­ity knives to be used in the harsh­est con­di­tions imag­in­able.

But don’t let its beauty fool you. When you feel the sen­sa­tion of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like leather, curly birch, rein­deer antler, and of course the ul­tra-sharp blade al­ways made from the finest steel, you’ll be con­vinced it is the per­fect tool for you.
