Our Mushroom knife is a perfect tool for outdoor people who are not necessarily hunting or hiking overnight. It has small carbon steel blade which is sharpened from the straight side. This steel is same than in our other knives so it cuts mushroom sharply without damaging its construction. The handle is made from Finnish curly birch and it has a brush on the top of it. Brush is made of horse hair, from local horse stables. It is collected during natural care, brushing and cutting tails and mane. Brush may be shortened with scissors if you like shorter and stiffer brush to clean your mushrooms. Carbon steel blade must be cleaned and dried after every use and recommended is to apply some cooking oil to it. It needs attention but rewards you with service for decades.
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.
