SOLD - Iisakki Järvenpää Horsehead Puukko - SOLD

It is made by immersing the naturally derived milk protein casein in formaldehyde. The name Galalite derived from the Greek words gala (milk) and lithos (stone). Producing Galalite works to some extent similarly to the making of cheese. Galalite is fireproof and can easily be pigmented. After World War II, Galalite was widely replaced by petroleum-based plastics. This is a traditional Kauhava style puukko. Missing belt loop.
