Terävä is carried by those who move in the woods
Complex or fashionable looks are not necessary for tools. The best decorations of a Terävä are its practical details and marks of use that accumulate with time. A knife that was chosen for work over and over again shows that it serves its purpose well.
Terävä is carried by Finnish soldiers
The weapons and equipment in themselves are not the primary affection of the soldier, but everything they are used to defend. The Puukko-knife of a Finnish soldier is internationally known and follows neither the western or eastern mold of blades. Terävä knives fill the needs of soldiers and advances our old tradition.
Terävä is Made in Finland
Unless it's made in Finland, we don't call it a Puukko. To manufacture a reliable knife that is available for the common person, we utilize advances in material and manufacturing technologies. The line we draw for price competitions with Terävä is the line on the map that borders Finland.
Terävä knives are made in Finland in co-operation with Laurin Metalli, a family business from Kauhava with roots all the way to 1918. The company is known for its knife blades, which are used by many Finnish puukko-brands and hobbyists around the world.
Terävä carves its own path
The Finnish knifesmithing skills are internationally recognized for a reason. Terävä remembers the past but looks into the future; as traditional Puukkos with wooden handles are made really well and in abundance, it would have been difficult to offer a distinctive knife in that category. Terävä knives were born to combine features and meet needs we wanted to see on our own belts: a simple and reliable tool.
