Kustaa Lammi Puukko


Kustaa Lammi 1901 - 2001

Kustaa Lammi, son of the old master of Finnish knife making, Juho Lammi, started making knives at a early age. When he was only 10 years old, he sold his first knife at the Kauhava railway station. Since then he had been in the knife making business. Kustaa Lammi made his last knife at the age of 95.

Since 1921 Kustaa Lammi had been running the knife making business which his father started in the Kettula, part of Kauhava. The products of Lammi's knife factory have been exported to over 15 countries, including Australia and the United States.

The shape of the puukko has remained the same as the original Lammi's puukko. It takes time to make a hand made puukko. Kustaa had appreciated the tratitional working methods and continued using them. Kustaa told that it takes about a week to make a puukko.

Finland's Central Chamber of Commerce granted Kustaa the Golden Award in recognition of his excellent work. The former president of Finland, Urho Kekkonen, also gave the President of Yugoslavia five Kustaa Lammi knives as a gift.
