Marttiini Fish Knife

For people of the arctic, a good fishing knife has always been an important tool for survival. The Marttiini knife factory has been producing the Lynx since 1928, with a curly-birch handle and a slightly curved blade at the tip—part of the company's Traditional Series. This stunning fishing knife features a rosewood handle, a ferrule of cast-bronze fish scales, and a bronze fish head on the butt. This fishing knife comes in a wooden presentation gift box. Both feature hand-sharpened blades of the finest German stainless steel and a genuine leather sheath. Imported from Finland.

Good Knife, Great Deal,
December 9, 2014

"This is a quality knife that is razor sharp. The blade is exceptional, blemish free, and mirror polished. Handle is hardwood with brass hilt and butt. Fit is good but trim work could be a bit better. A good knife from a good international maker."

Longtime admirer of fine cutlery,
October 18, 2014
By: WalterVB
from Overseas / USA
"Having worked all over the world I have seen many fine knives that acquaintances have carried.
Many years ago a friend from Finland carried a Marttiini that struck my eye as the finest working knife I have ever used.
There are many custom knife makers out there today but few can give you a quality knife at the price point of a Marttiini. Marttiini makes working knives that are showcase quality.
Now thanks to Orvis after many years I have my own Marttiini Fish Knife. With all the travel restrictions imposed since 9/11 it is harder and harder to transport knives where I travel to. Putting such a fine article in checked baggage is taking a real chance of loss these days. Orvis not only has a 100% satisfaction guarantee but a price break that is impossible to match (Especially when on sale) even in the overseas markets.
When you buy with Orvis you buy with confidence.

Gorgeous and Sharp,
January 16, 2014
By: TinkerToy
"This knife was purchased as a birthday gift for a gentleman that already has a quite extensive knife collection. Needless to say he was blown-away with the beauty and detailed craftsmanship. The sharpness of the blade along with the the brass and wood accents are beautiful, and the knife has a wonderful "feel" in your hand. He is still talking about it and showing it to friends!"

Great Gift,

"Classic style with great quality...well received on Christmas Day...however the handsome box it was delivered in was crushed on the side...made me sad the presentation would have been lovely with a simple ribbon...had to patch the box and wrap. Not the way you want to present your Orvis gift to someone special"

"I ALWAYS WANTED TO PURCHASE THIS KNIFE AFTER MY VISIT TO Sscandinevia last year. He will be a trustful companion in fishing or camping trips. The price was the same as a similar knife I bought there for my son."
