    Marttiini Handy Knife with Curly Birch Handle 511017 Knives

    BladesKnives£ 49Trade
    New Handy Product no.: 511017 This knife has been one of the legendary Marttiini models for decades. In the 1970s almost every household in Finland had the Handy knife. It was a truly general purpose knife used for peeling potatoes as well as carving wood. The shortish blade of this knife is practical for jobs that require precision. In this updated model the traditional blade design is combined with a beautiful curly birch handle. The New Handy comes with a stylish leather sheath. Additional product information Length of blade 7,5 cm Total length 17,5 cm Blade material Stainless steel Handle material Curly birch Waxed Sheath material Leather   Stainless chromium steel The stainless steel used by Marttiini is easy to maintain as a blade material. A stainless steel blade remains sharp for long. Chromium makes up 13% of the steel mixture and the hardness of the mixture is 53-54 Rockwell units (HRC). A diamond sharpener is recommended for sharpening chromium steel. Curly birch The traditional material used for Finnish knife handles is curly birch. The material comes from the curly birch belt in Central Finland. The blaze-patterned curly birch is an excellent fit as a material for a knife handle, because it's durable and fair. This beautifully patterned curly birch is available on the market in limited amounts, which makes the price notably higher than regular birch.   Leather sheath The leather sheaths of Marttiini knives are made with either vegetable or chrome tanned oxhide. The leather hides are purchased from both Europe and South America. The sheaths are made with both dyed and natural colored leather. The knife sheaths are still made mostly by hand. Each sheath has to be exactly the right size and shape, so it forms a fitting pair with the knife. A section of the leather is cut with a model iron, and the seams are attached with glue before sewing. Most sheaths have a plastic piece inside that supports the sheath and protects the blade. The printing on the sheath is made on either the cut section or the finished sheath. Rivets, and in some cases a bronze collar, strengthen and adorn the sheath....Read full description
