The Single Sheath Härmä Knife

The Härmä Knife is based on the Visapää 1 model, which was designed by Iisakki Järvenpää himself at the end of the 19th century. Back then the Visapää 1 was a very popular knife. Later on the development work continued, the model becoming more and more decorative and eventually reaching the form of the Double Sheath Härmä Knife, the Helahoito set, which today has an immortal reputation. By returning to the roots was formed this Single Sheath Härmä Knife.

The Härmä Knife is based on the Visapää 1 model, which was designed by Iisakki Järvenpää himself at the end of the 19th century. Back then the Visapää 1 was a very popular knife. Later on the development work continued, the model becoming more and more decorative and eventually reaching the form of the Double Sheath Härmä Knife, the Helahoito set, which today has an immortal reputation. By returning to the roots was formed this Single Sheath Härmä Knife. The knife itself is exactly similar as the bigger knife in the Helahoito set. The only difference is the colouring. The double sheath model is stained red, whereas the single sheath model is beautiful black. The difference between the sheaths is bigger: the one of the single sheath model is simple without any decorations. It's made of dark coloured vegetable tanned cow hide, and the only decoration is so called stave or a metal hoop around the upper part of the sheath, into which is attached the belt loop. Stave is always made of the same material as the knife's ferrules. The ferrules are made of two different materials: brass, as in the double sheath model, and nickel silver, which is especially popular these days. There's a matching traditional costume belt, "Helavyö", available with both ferrule materials. The model looks simple and graceful, but it's very difficult to produce. The making of ferrules require numerous phases, like the handle finishing as well. Clear-cut lines are not only beautiful but also merciless for the one shaping the product. The blade is 10cm polished carbon steel, thus the traditional model serves also as utility knife. For a long time this model has been the knife used by some military detachments. Because of its outstanding properties it requires also some care: after each use the carbon steel blade has to be cleaned, dried, and oiled with some cooking oil, for example. The blade is extremely sharp and it's also easy to sharpen by oneself with a grindstone. It's possible to have an imposing engraving on the handle of this model.

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.
