The Tundra is a tough performer

The Tundra is a full-blooded bushcraft all-round knife for the demanding user. This bushcraft knife is designed for heavy-duty use. Made of high-strength stainless steel, the full tang structure and robust blade provide excellent durability. The blade and the full tang are 3.5 mm thick.

On this knife, traditional materials go hand in hand with modern design. The handle is made of Finnish curly birch. The red details on the handle and leather sheath seal the dynamic look.

The Tundra knife is available with two handle options: deadwood-like, grey-waxed curly birch and natural-coloured, waxed curly birch. The surface of the waxed wood and the design of the handle ensure a firm grip. The sturdy leather sheath is reinforced with rivets.

If needed, the knife handle parts can be re-tightened. The screw has a Torx T10 head.

Stainless chromium steel

The stainless steel used by Marttiini is easy to maintain as a blade material. A stainless steel blade remains sharp for long. Chromium makes up 13% of the steel mixture and the hardness of the mixture is 53-54 Rockwell units (HRC). A diamond sharpener is recommended for sharpening chromium steel.

Rubber mixture

Rubber mixture is extremely well suited as the material for knife handles. An ergonomically shaped rubber handle can be washed in a washing machine, is easy to maintain, hygienic and safe. A rubber handle feels pleasantly warm to touch even under outdoor conditions, for instance in freezing or wet weather. The roughened part of the handle and the finger guard guarantee a safe and firm grip for knives of the Condor-series.

Leather sheath

The leather sheaths of Marttiini knives are made with either vegetable or chrome tanned oxhide. The leather hides are purchased from both Europe and South America. The sheaths are made with both dyed and natural coloured leather.

The knife sheaths are still made mostly by hand. Each sheath has to be exactly the right size and shape, so it forms a fitting pair with the knife. A section of the leather is cut with a model iron, and the seams are attached with glue before sewing. Most sheaths have a plastic piece inside that supports the sheath and protects the blade.

The printing on the sheath is made on either the cut section or the finished sheath. Rivets, and in some cases a bronze collar, strengthen and adorn the sheath.

Brand

Marttiini

It all began in 1928 at the land of dark Arctic winters and the midnight sun, when a blacksmith Janne Marttiini decided to establish knife factory to Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland. With the user in mind, he began to create beautiful, high quality utility articles to be used in the harshest conditions imaginable. But don't let its beauty fool you. The moment you put one to a test, you're convinced it is the perfect tool for your need. You feel the sensation of natural materials like leather, curly birch, reindeer antler, and of course the ultra sharp blade always made from finest steel. Today, Marttiini knives are a combination of generations of craftsmanship and modern technology that create knives that are not only sharp, but also perfectly represent the beauty and toughness of the North. They're called "puukko" – the Nordic knife.
