Summary
    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).

    Hiiliterästerissä on toimitettaessa suojaöljy, joka on ehdottomasti puhdistettava pois ennen elintarvikkeiden kanssa käyttöä. Puukko on aina käytön jälkeen puhdistettava ja kuivattava ja mielellään öljyttävä. Jos puukko jää märkänä tuppeen, se mustuu ja saattaa ruostua. Mikäli käytät puukkoa elintarvikkeisiin, öljyä terä jatkossa esim. rypsi- tai auringonkukkaöljyllä. Oliiviöljyn happoisuus saattaa tummentaa terää. 

    Keittiö- ja kalaveitset sekä riistapuukko ovat ruostumatonta terästä, joka ei vaadi öljyämistä. Ruostumattomassa terässä lukee etsattuna teksti "stainless steel". 

    Carbon steel blade is corrosion protected with oil. The oil must be carefully removed before any use with grocery. Blade must be cleaned and dried after every use. We recommend using oil for corrosion protection. If the knife is left wet inside the sheath, it will get black markings and even rust. If you use knife with foodstuff, use eatable oil for example sunflower or rapeseed oil. Olive oil may be too acidic and affect marks on blade. 

    The kitchen and fish knives as well as the Game knife are made of stainless steel, which does not require oiling.

    The villagers and boys were amazed and in awe when a huge oddity rolled down the road in September, 1922. Alfred Kosola’s horses had to tax their strength when drawing a sleigh with an indenting hammer of 5.000 kilograms, along the snowless road to the Järvenpää’s factory. The cubs’ imagination really took over, when they began to hear a constant pounding from the factory. It was like an iron giant’s sledgehammer banging.
