The sharpness (razor sharp) of Marttiini® Knives is world-famous. The good reputation comes from the special Marttiini®-Steel and the high quality manufacturing process.
The blades are made from a special stainless chrome steel. Many tests and developing work have been done until the right combination of chrome and the other materials have been founded. The tempering at just the right temperature - determined from Janne Marttiini’s developing work - ensures the durable and strong blade. The composition of the materials (containing 13% of chrome) tempered to 54-56 on the Rockwell hardness scale (HRC) is the best combination for knife blade. The 13% of chrome assures the steel to be durable, absolutely stainless and saltwater resistance (even acid resistance). The hardness under 54 HRC is too low for knife blade, a softer blade is definitely easier to sharpen, but the sharpness will be not a long-lasting and the edge of the blade is too flexible for harder use. If the hardness is over 56 HRC, the blade is certainly hard and retain an edge, but will break more easily. The sharpening is then even impossible without the sharpening wheel.
All handles used in Marttiini® knives are manufactured by Marttiini itself in the turnery in Laukaa or Rovaniemi.
Many alternatives are used for handle materials and very typical are the different kind of wood materials. Traditionally the handles are made of pale Finnish curly birch. Curly birch grows only in a bounded area in the middle of Finland. This hard, thick grainy material is very suitable for knife handle, it is durable, easy to timber, beautiful and very sought-after. Due to limited availability it is more valuable than ordinary Finnish birch, which is an other highly used, traditional pale wooden material. To satisfy the demands of the international markets, Marttiini has for years use the other darker-tone wooden materials like hazel and rosewood. These beautiful hardwoods give the knife the valuable, more international expression.
As a company located in Lapland, Marttiini has always wanted to highlight the Lappish traditions and the arctic exotic. Each knife is an individual masterpiece but also a durable, usable knife.
The sheath covers and protects the knife, as well as protects the user to hurt himself. A perfectly fitting sheath has been designed for each knife model. Sheaths are reinforced by rivets on the edge of the sheath, press-stud sticking, band round the sheath or plastic inner sleeve.
The leather sheaths are completely hand made. The leather hides are cut to the different sizes. The sheaths are sewn by using ”the milk glue” to hold the edges tight together. The plastic inner sleeve is pushed into the sewn, printed and wet leather sheath.
All Marttiini® products carry a three year guarantee to be free of defects in materials and workmanship.
Janne Marttiini’s work continues. Each individual knife must pass a rigid quality control to have their blades engraved with ”J Marttiini, Finland”
