The Pikku Uppo
The Pikku-uppo is based on the Jätkänvuolu model and designed for youngsters. The shape is similar but the size is smaller. The blade is made of carbon steel and the handle is varnished curly birch. The sheath is decorated with Sami style stampings.
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.
