Iisakki Järvenpää Knives - Sold Outright

Iisakki jarvenpaa knife

Iisakki Järvenpää was born on January 7th, 1859, and died on March 6th, 1929. Iisakki, along with his parents and siblings, grew up in Kauhava, Finland.

In 1879, Iisakki decided to become a cutler (a person that makes cutlery). There were no tools available for his new occupation, therefore, he had to craft all his own instruments. He, also, had to learn how to forge a blade, how to use alloy, how to harden steel, including polishing, sharpening, and all the other phases of knife-making. Finally after a lot of trial and error, the invention of the blood groove, as it is called, on the blade became the trademark of his knives.

Iisakki Järvenpää received his breakthrough when he forged a knife for Prince Royal (Perintöruhtinaan puukko).  He received nationwide publicity and after that, there was a huge demand for his knives.

The Kauhava (named for his Iisakki Järvenpää's hometown) Horsehead puukko with its varnished birch bark handle is a very popular choice among collectors.

The factory in Finland,  that makes the Iisakki Järvenpää knives, is no longer owned by Iisakki's family.  It was sold on August 30th, 2013.

 A few of these knives are available in the "Soldoutright" Shopify Store.
