Martef-coated hunting knives are excellent tools for hunters.
The dirt and moisture repelling Martef coating reduces friction to almost zero whilst protecting the blade against corrosion. Due to the coating the blade moves extremely smoothly through cut meat or fish, and cleaning the blade after use is extremely easy.
The skinning hook is an excellent tool for opening deer. The hook at the back of the knife helps to open the animal without touching internal organs, whilst the round shape of the blade ensures that the hide comes away cleanly and intact. The hook can be sharpened with a pen type sharpener (such as the Marttiini diamond sharpener pen).
The orange rubber handle and finger guard ensure user comfort and safety. Due to the sharpening angle of the stainless chrome steel blade, the knife can be used as a normal knife. A true multi-purpose knife for hunters.
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.
Rubber mixture is extremely well suited as the material for knife handles. An ergonomically shaped rubber handle can be washed in a washing machine, is easy to maintain, hygienic and safe. A rubber handle feels pleasantly warm to touch even under outdoor conditions, for instance in freezing or wet weather. The roughened part of the handle and the finger guard guarantee a safe and firm grip for knives of the Condor-series.
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.
