Iisakki Jarvenpaa Finland

Iisakki Jarvenpaa (1859-1929) began making knives in the late 1800’s and founded Iisakki Jarvenpaa Incorp. in 1904, which has maintained pace for over 100 years now, changing hands multiple times, and continuing to make high quality knives with primarily Finnish materials (the only exception is the steel, which is produced in Germany) in their factory in Kauhava. Iisakki Jarvenpaa was instrumental in Kauhava knifemaking and contributed many design elements now considered very traditional such as the stacked birch bark handle and the fullered blade.
