"Nature has been for me, for as long as I can remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion." Lorraine Anderson

This knife fairly screams, "Quality! Quality! Quality!"

Marttiini is a Finnish firm that has been crafting superb knives since 1928. Both their knifemaking skills and authentic Finnish designs are outstanding!

For people in the arctic regions, e.g. the Finns, a knife has always been an important means of survival in harsh conditions. Knives were necessity in collecting firewood and making a fire, making tools and implements, construction, hunting, fishing and preparing the kill for cooking and eating. Marttiini knife factory has a long tradition in combining handicraft skills and practical needs.

This substantial, heavy duty folder (4 7/8 inches closed) has a 3 1/2 inch stainless steel blade which is hollow ground and with a mirror finish! It measures 57-58 on the HRC (hardness scale). It weighs 6.3 oz (180 gms).

This knife is all stainless - including the gracefully curved bolsters. The handle is shaped with a finger grip, and takes a long (4 inch) piece of fossil ivory.

This knife is equally at home on your belt in the wild, or in a collector's exhibit case!

Comes with either a leather belt sheath or a soft zippered collector's pouch.

Shown with Fossil Walrus Ivory - Light, with wildlife scene. (If you like, you may buy this very knife! Click on picture for larger image.) As an option, we will scrimshaw an etching of any animal, a ship of your choice, or your own boat (sail or power)on one side - Just email or snailmail us a picture, or let us draft one for you.


Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
