Handmade traditional knife from Finland, made by Pure Kamppila & Son. Ahti (also Ahto) is the god of the sea and fishing in Finnish mythology. The blade is made of carbon-vanadium Böhler Uddeholm steel (not stainless) and has a Rockwell hardness of about 58-59 °. The handle is made of stained curly birch and has brass fittings.
A small, fine outdoor knife. Tikka means woodpecker. Supplied with high-quality leather sheath.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
