One of the most famous and the most wanted products of Iisakki Järvenpää Osakeyhtiö is the Helahoito set, consisting of the Kaksneuvoonen double sheath Härmä Knife and the Helavyö belt. The knives have red painted curly birch handles and polished carbon steel blades. All decoratings has been manually engraved. The smaller knife (Junki) has a 7cm long blade and the bigger knife's blade is 10cm long. Decade after another this masterpiece of handicraft of Kauhava has been one of the most famous knife models of ours. The knives, the sheath and the Helavyö belt are completely hand-made from beginning to end, therefore the production phase takes several meticulous hours. For example, every single hanging loop for the Helavyö belt's ornaments are still twisted by hand with a thread and sawn by hand. Each loop is attached to the belt one by one, not too loose, but in such a way that they rattle. That's how it's always been done. The belt is easy to shorten by removing ornaments, but it's long enough (115cm) also for a sturdier person. Longer belts are available to special order.
