Os Lauri Törni Perinnekilta ry logo was handcrafted with saw, file and pliers from silver. Then we made a mold and used it for casting these silver pieces, now used in the sheath of the knives, in a head of Larry Thorne 100 years anniversary knife and series of jewelry. All products are hand made in Kauhava Finland.
Model of this knife is traditional Jaeger knife. It has 13 cm (5 inch) long carbon steel blade and varnished curly birch handle. On the head of the knife is silver plate with casted silver guild logo welded on it. The blade is same than we use in Iso Uppo, which is very popular model for hikers. So despite all decorations, it is really functional tool for trekking even though most of these will stay in collectors cabinets.
The knife has protective layer of cooking oil over the blade when delivered, it can be cleaned and if the knife is not used with foodstuff it can be protected with CRC, WD40 or similar oil. Note: If the blade is not protected with any oil and left moisture, it will get black corrosion marks or even rust.
Only 100 individually numbered pieces of this anniversary knife will ever be made. For every sold Larry Thorne 100 years anniversary knife we will forward 50€ to support Os Lauri Törni Perinnekilta ry guild. All 100 years anniversary knives are delivered in our own handmade black sheetmetal box which has polished brass cover as in memory of Operation Shining Brass. Cover has engraved guild logo.
