Early known as the Hackman - PUUKKO, as we all know,
has travelled along the history of mankind since 1959/60,
when this model was originally invented by
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 handicraft, as always.
By an american historybook in the early years of the
Vietnam war, this folding knife was with the CIA special forces;
blade do not rust, handle do not suffer from moist.
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!
In Finland, as everywhere else, a puukko has been just to help you
in every day life. It continues your fingernails, aids you surviving in
the wilderness, and if you have a bread to cut, what do you do?
You have a knife!
And as the common sense is getting rarer and rarer all the time,
I have to tell you folks, that knives do not kill people; odd people
behind them kill people. So therefore I, the manufacturer, am not to blaim, if one
gets into accident or misbehaves for good.
Value common sense, what ever you do! This is an order!
