Witch's Tooth Knife

Product no.: 2121010

The knife of an old witch, who used it to carve thin slices of dried meat.
According to old beliefs, the rattle made of reindeer horn at the end of the handle keeps the evil spirits at bay so that the user of the knife may eat in peace.

The combination of curly birch and horn in the handle turn this knife into a true gem.

Stainless chromium steel

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

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

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.

 
Bone

Bone

Marttiini's exotic Lapland tradition is best illustrated in knife handles which combine reindeer and moose antler bone with beautiful Finnish curly birch. Handling antler bone is demanding artisan handwork, which puts one's skills to the test.
