AK-Line

These knives are made by Altti Kankaanpaa, one of the best known and appreciated makers in Finland. He was born in 1930 and starting making knives in 1942 at age 12. His father who was born in 1904 was also a knife maker. Altti first learned from his father and since has had decades of experience making knives. His hand forged carbon steel blades are rugged looking from the forge. His hand crafted knives are easy to sharpen and re-sharpen for years of use for all kinds of tasks. These puukkos were originally made as basic working tools with no time wasted on unnecessary features. The lightly oiled handles come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Altti was also chosen as an honored person of Kauhava, the knife making capitol of Finland. He is a warm hearted man with a vast knowledge of knife makers and knife making in Finland.
  • Once these knives are gone - there will be no more.
