It all began in 1928 in the land of dark winters and the midnight sun when Janne Marttiini, a blacksmith, decided to establish a knife factory in Rovaniemi, in Finnish Lapland. With the user in mind, he began to create beautiful, high quality utility articles to be used in the harshest conditions imaginable. Two of Janne's sons carried the business through to its sale to Rapala in 2005.
The blades of Marttiini outdoor knives are made from 420 steel with 13% chromium and have a HRC of 53-34. Today, Marttiini knives are still manufactured at the Arctic Circle.
They are a combination of generations of craftsmanship and modern technology that create knives that are not only sharp but also represent the beauty and toughness of the North.
Marttiini gives its products a 3-year warranty that covers material and production defects. Damage due to misuse is not covered by warranty. The warranty of Martinef coating is 12 months.
