Iisakki Järvenpää Inc has manufactured different kitchen knives and even forks and knives for decades. The making of all these have shut down at the latest the end of 1970s. Altogether there were around 20 different kitchen knife modelst in the old catalogues named as meat knife, bread knife and so on. Different models were made with a couple of handle options, with and without under fittings and with different blade lengths. We brought back into production two of these models. One of them was named carving knife after the original name, even though it is excellent for general use in the kitchen. The handle is made of mahogany that was in store from the 1970s. Blade is made with old factory tools, which gives it a traditional model. It is often asked, why the blade is such an unconventional form. There could be a fancy story behind it, but truthfully we don’t have any record stored for the basis. Either way, it must be good, because they have been made and sold as they are for 50 years.
Blade material is by the original model 1,2 mm stainless steel and the handle has been varnished as before. Because of the varnish, the knife must not be put in the dishwasher! Blade length is 16 cm, whole knife length is 27 cm. Carving knife can be bought as a packet with the bread knife that has the same handle. Also these kitchen knives are delivered in a gift box.
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.
