"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."

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.

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.
