Marttiini knives have been around a long time and are excellent quality. i own a couple of antique ones, but no recent ones. the antiques are beautiful.
i agree with you. i have a knife my father brought from northern finland 13 years ago , and gave me a couple of months ago for my 17th birthday . i took a picture from the internet , my knife is exactly the same except that on mine there is a slight custom-made finger groove near the blade for better handling. i will soon post a picture of mineMarttiini knives have been around a long time and are excellent quality. i own a couple of antique ones, but no recent ones. the antiques are beautiful.
SMKW has a few models:Is there a place here int he US that markets them?
The Marttiini immitation leather sheath is OK.
I dunno, I'm thinking SMKW simply blew the description. Mine seem to be real leather, the Marttiini site says they are leather, and three other sites I just looked at say the black ones are leather.http://www.smkw.com/webapp/eCommerc...t&SearchText=Marttiini&Search.x=11&Search.y=5
This is the Marttiini, I bought, I'm looking at the sheath and it is manmade material...Pleather?
Granted if you spend more than I did you'd probably get a leather sheath. I could care less about the sheath being Pleather...It's the steel in the blade that matters to me. What is jerking my chain right now is that I believe I gave 16 bucks or the one I have and they are advertised at 14. ::
