These materials include reindeer bone, antler and curly grained birch (known in Finland as “visa”), leather and reindeer fur. Not only large companies make knives. They are also made by talented individuals in their homes.
The craftsmanship is handed down from one generation to the next. Our suppliers have become closely acquainted with many of these talented people and have observed their skill in producing collector, hunting and fishing knives.
