Luomanen Puukko from Kauhava. Luomanen & Partners manufactured knives from 1922 to 1945. Brown and marblized galalite handle with nickel silver fittings. Galalite is a  bioplastic which was developed at the end of the 19th century. 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.
