Legendary vintage
butterfly knife!


Early known as the Hackman butterfly / balisong knife
- PUUKKO, as we all know, has travelled along the history of
mankind since 1959/60, when this model was originally invented by 
Hackman, Finland. 

The story goes like a Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkala worked
with Hackman in the area of Sorsakoski (still there, by the way),
and one of his modellings is our puukko.
It is nowadays in the good hands of Saga Spirit Ltd, Finland,
and is manufactured handicrafted, as always.

By an american historybook in the early years of the 
Vietnam war, the CIA did issue these butterfly knives
 

At the time Hackman sold the old equipment to a new entrepreneur,
puukko had to change its name - so, as known as by its original
place in Sorsakoski, it was named again as the sorsakoskelainen,
the Sorsakoskian. The handle still has its birth place name on it.

Many of Finns have grown up with this puukko model, or seen it in the hands
of their grandpa's, just like Saga did had her first teaching how to
handle a puukko in a right and safe way!
