All the birch bark handled, varnished knives are called Kauhava knives. The only historical maker of so called Ball Pommel Knives is Iisakki Järvenpää, so he can be thought to be the inventor of this model. Because of this, the collectable knives—made to celebrate anniversaries during the long history of the company—are ball pommel knives. The same applies to the models made every fifth year in honour of Finland’s independence. The Ball Pommel Knife's pommel or upper ferrule is round and made of cast brass. Over the time, handle has been made of many different materials, but today we produce handles of varnished birch bark. Like the others, this traditional model has its origins at the turn of 1880's and 1890's. It has been in uninterrupted production ever since. The blade is 10cm long polished carbon steel. The sheath is made of light-coloured leather with traditional stampings on it, and a decorative brass fitting at the tip. The sheath is similar to the one on the Kauhava Horse Head Knife (Kauhavan Hevospää).

Die Dorfbewohner und die Jungs waren begeistert und in Ehrfurcht, als eine riesige Kuriosität im September 1922 die Straße entlang rollte. Alfred Kosolas Pferde mussten ihre ganze Stärke aufbieten beim Ziehen des Schlittens, der mit einem Hammer von 5,000 kg beladen, unterwegs zu der Järvenpää Fabrik war. Die Jungen glaubten in ihrer Fantasie bereits das konstante Hämmern im Werk zu hören. Es war ein riesiger Vorschlaghammer, der aussah, wie ein großes Bügeleisen.
