Marttiini has manufactured knives in Rovaniemi, Finland, since 1928. Marttiini’s knives for sale at Knives of the North tend to try to strike a balance between beauty, functionality, and ease of sharpening. This design is a work of art, and the blades are still quite tough; they hold an edge very well, but they are not as tough as those from other Scandinavian knife makers, usually 53-54 Rockwell. Most of the handles are made with sturdy curly birch, either left natural, stained, or lacquered, but Marttiini also has some handles in modern materials like rubberized plastic. The Marttiini knives for sale at Knives of the North are also much more affordable than other Scandinavian knives. Shop the full line of Marttiini knives and see their beauty for yourself.
