Customer Reviews

Great Knife, Mora alternate WOW, this a really nice nice. Very similar in every way to a Mora. Scandi grind, arrived super sharp, plastic sheath, rubber handle, almost full tang. The value rating is off the chart. I like this better than a Mora for two reasons:One the fact that it is NOT a mora. i am a knife guy and outdoors man, lots of friends carry or own moras, it is nice to have a just as cool alternate. A silly reason i know, but i list it to be truthful.Two is I love the look of the blade, unfinished with the polished edge.Other stuff, fits my large size hands nice, resharpens very easily, and so far has been tough as hell after a fair amount of abuse. I actually bought a few more and have literally tried to destroy it though normal hard use, it has held up great. 5Fantastic KnifeAnother great Scandinavian knife. The Condor Timberjack is a great knife. The price is unbelievable. I like this Condor slightly better than the Mora Companion. The handle feels better in my hand than the Companion and it throws sparks on fero rods easier. There's no need to alter the spine in order to throw sparks as I've heard some people do with some Moras (I haven't had the need to do that on my Moras so far.) The blade is slightly longer and thicker than the Companion.That it comes with a sheath is a bonus I guess. They cheaped out on the belt holder design. I may cut the belt holder off and drill a hole in it to run some paracord through. Marttini makes a leather sheath too and sell it with a Condor for $25. I may pick up another Condor Timberjack with that leather sheath. Having 2 of these would be a good thing. It also fits Mora Companion and Lightmyfire FireKnife (also a Mora knife) sheaths. 3rd party sheaths are hard to find for this model. You can find Kydex and leather sheaths for most common knives in abundance online but the Marttini doesn't seem to have enough fans yet.5Better that I thoughtHad to do the right thing and change my review on this knife. I shitted on it at first because at first glance it looked like crap. I was mad that the blade looked horrible and the even the mirror polish wasn't quite mirror. The tang seemed like it only went about a couple inches down due to how easily I could flex the blade.Today I put it to hard use along with a couple Moras and a Hultafors GK. Despite it seemingly having a weaker tang to handle marriage, it ended up being the preferred knife to work with when it came to carving.. It even batoned no problem. This thing will break if worked around too much, but it works beautifully at normal and even somewhat hard tasks. I was batoning maple and black walnut and carving all kinds of shit and it still held its edge better than my mora. Looks can be deceiving.4Impressive to farI was recently introduced to Marttiini knives and decided to start on the low end of their product line. I've read it many times that this is a step above a Mora, which is almost sacrilege. So far, the Marttiini is in the lead over the Mora that I own. The mirror polish on the blade is quite impressive and it shaved hairs off my arm w/o a bit of tug or pinch. Maybe someone can explain the darker portion of the blade and how it was treated to look different. Is it a coating? A particular "wash"? And, yes, I'm not going out to baton this thing to death with a rock or tree branch. To me, it's obvious this isn't its intended purpose unless you have zero other options to split wood.Recommended? For just a few dollars more than a Mora, it's worth adding it to your gear or collection.5Worth Getting, Although It Is More Expensive Than My MorasThis knife was more expensive than my Mora's, but I wanted something different to try out. It's from Finland, has carbon steel (1095?), and a basic plastic sheath. The mirror polishing on the bottom section of the blade is beautiful, but I will probably end up forcing a patina on it. The plastic/rubber handle is comfortable, and the blade grinds are all even. In terms of blade thickness and edge geometry, this knife is on par with my Moras. There is nothing super wonderful that makes this knife stand head and shoulders above my Swedish mistresses, but it's still a nice knife to own. I put a magnet on the handle, and it adhered down most of the length of the handle, so I suspect this knife has a decent stick tang. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the sheath for this knife fits my Terava 140mm puuko, so I relegated my Marttiini knife to an old Marbles sheath. I haven't had a chance to try out the steel on this knife yet, but I've been impressed with the carbon steel on my other Finnish knives, so I've got high hopes that this knife will be a good cutting tool as well.5Cosmetic issues, lame belt loop on sheath, but good cutterBesides this knife, I own three Finnish knives - a Rapala/Marttini, a Jarvenpaa, and a Wood Jewel. I also have about nine Moras, so I know Scandinavian knives reasonably well, at least the lower to medium end. I got this because I really like my birch handled/stainless steel blade Rapala/Marttini and I was curious to see one of their carbon steel blades. The knife came with a great edge, though so do Moras. The handle is comfortable, although the finger guard is slightly canted back towards the handle and that feels a little odd. The biggest problem with this knife is not performance - it s cosmetic. Somebody on quality control slipped, I guess. The knife comes with a polished edge, and it really is polished - great job. The rest of the blade is left with the scale/patina from the forge and this is something that I have on my Jarvenpaa - I like the look. They botched mine. The left side of the blade looks fine, but the right side, where I expected to see the company s name laser engraved, looks like somebody took a magic marker and covered over most of the patina area. It looks pretty bad, and I m quite surprised they let it go out the door. Perhaps someone did it later, but that makes virtually no sense, unless you are willing to imagine a conspiratorial bunch of Mora lovers who are trying to poison the Marttiini brand, LOL.A special word about the sheath, which is the other low point here. I knew about this before I bought it, but the belt attachment is just lame. I m used to plastic sheaths from all my Moras, and I like them when they are done well, but this one has a belt loop like the older low-end Moras - you re supposed to slip the belt horizontally through two slits in the cheap plastic loop, but there s no room for any sort of belt I own, and the plastic is going to break almost immediately. I m going to cut the whole loop off and figure something else off, as the rest of the sheath is fine - it locks the knife in and there are no defects in it.The performance of the blade is very good, but so is the performance of the equivalent Moras. This knife has a thicker blade than the equivalent Moras, but if you want a cheap and beefy Scandinavian knife, get a Hultafors Heavy Duty; it s even cheaper than this was.3these come razor sharp and are easy to sharpen after lots of use wow. wow. and wow. these are much sharper and more ergonomic than the Morakniv knives. I own both marttiini and morakniv and much more prefer the marttiini. these come razor sharp and are easy to sharpen after lots of use. stays very sharp and the grip is very comfortable. the blade isn't finished or treated so it doesn't rust so you'll want to be careful with that. I used this knife on a ranch for 3 days while we rounded up 1000 cattle and had to castrate and cut a hundred or more calves, one slash and they were gone. 5Has potential as a good carving knife, just rusts stupidy easyI know a guy who owns a puukko and uses it for camping and swore by this brand as being better than moras and over all a great value for the money. I saw that it was carbon steel and though, ok, so are a lot of my knives and they never had a problem with rusting. I got this and carves some stuff with it, held an edge really well, came out of the box razor sharp, then I used it to carve an apple. I washed the apple first so it was wet and then cut into it. I dried the knife off on my shirt and figured it wasnt that wet and would be safe to put away. I take out an hour later and it has rust spots all over it. I thought it was actually pieces of the apple at first but then I realized, yeah, it rusted in less than an hour. I took some steel wool to it and most of it was surface rust but some of it was really deep in there. Possibly caused by the sugars or acidity of the apple or something.I will more than likely use this as a carving knife and make sure it doesn't go near water. It still works and still has a good edge its just knowing it can rust that fast and with that little use is discouraging for outdoor use. If you are using this for carving its a comfortable and easy to use knife, if you are planning to use it for camping I would reconsider3Just like a Mora, only different.My son has a friend of Finnish extraction who swears by Marttiini knives. He was raised on Michigan's Upper Peninsula and grew up with Marttiini knives around the home. He still uses them today. Mention a Mora to him, and he sniffs,"naturally we prefer Marttiinis". (I prefer martinis, too, but that is a different matter.)I don't know anybody who grew up around Moras. I just discovered them a few years ago, and I love them. They are light, they are sharp, they are easy to maintain, and they are so cheap you don't have to baby them or lose sleep if you lose one. Marttiinis are the same.The Timberjack, 8.5 inches long with a blade just a hair under 4", is almost exactly the same size as a Mora No. 2 or the rubber-handled Companion, which it more closely resembles. Some people claim the Marttiinis are sharper, but I can't detect it. The rubber-handled Marttiinis seem to run a few bucks more than most Moras, in the neighborhood of 20 bucks, as compared to $13-16 for the Moras. But if you want a wood handle on your Marttiini, the price is going to double. The traditional wood-handled Moras are no more expensive than the rubber ones.This knife comes with a plastic sheath, just like a Mora. It has a stick tang, not unlike a Mora, but full-length. You would probably not want to beat on it any more than you would a Mora. The rubber covering on the handles feels a little harder than a Mora, with a pronounced checkered texture that feels quite different. The finger guard is more pronounced, as is the flared pommel. A lot of small differences that might guide your choice, but in the long run, the similarities are more significant than the differences.5Truly a wonderful knife. Truly a miserable sheath.I bought this knife just to try something a little different than my Moraknivs. The knife is really nice, the handle is during use, no hot spots. It came nice and sharp, a little light woodworking really shows it's ability to slice and carve. I look forward to ordering more of their knives.The plastic sheath that comes with it is horrible. They could definitely learn a thing or two from Mora about how to do the polymer sheath. It has absolutely no retention and the belt loop is useless. Fortunately when I ordered the knife I also tacked on a Hide & Drink leather sheath. I have a couple of these and they are definitely worth every penny for either your Mora, Marttiini or similar knife.4This is awesome.I just got this knife, today. I had to go out and test it out. I have four Moras, and the biggest gripe is the spine I've ground the spine on three of them and they spark a ferro rod pretty good. On this Marttiini knife, I didn't have to grind the spine, and it throws sparks like a firecracker display. It feathers well, it batons like a champ within reason. I can't find anything to dis it on, except the sheath, and it fits in my mora sheath. The grip is comfortable and secure. I think, even with wet hands, it wouldn't slip. The 1/8th inch spine is comforting. I love this knife.5Unreal Deal, Best Knife for the PriceNiin hyv , would rate higher than 5 stars for a $17 knife. This is my first Marttiini and I did not expect it to look so beautiful. The sharpness is unreal, right out of the box it shaves hair and paper like nothing I've seen before, and I even strop my other knives with 10000 grit paste. I was wanting to save up some money for one of Marttiini's more traditional knives like the Lynx or Lapp Knife, but I recently saw my Companion had a bend in the tip so it was either this knife or the Companion Heavy Duty for a thicker high-carbon upgrade, and now here I am with this mora-puukko. The bolster with its extended finger guard and thumb grip feels really nice, and the handle overall is just more comfortable to me as it digs into my hand better. The butt is comfortable for the thumb to be placed over it and it has a hard rubbery feel to it. The mold line isn't noticeable to the touch really, except on the bolster where it digs in a bit too much. I like the weight of the Timberjack, feels a bit hefty. The dark blue-gray textured blade looks so good to look at, with all its colors and textures. I almost don't want to use the knife now, but just oil it and frame it instead. I'm so glad though that I decided to buy this knife as it's my new favorite knife in my collection and it's definitely the best knife in my collection. It has a 3mm thick blade with a low angle, so it is strong and sharp. The weird thing though is it has a very faint microbevel, which I show in one of my images. There is a mirror-like finish on the edge as my pictures show. The sheath is okay but the knife rests a bit deep in it and the belt loop is awful. It's street-legal length to conceal this in Florida without a permit, but I've yet to think of a comfortable way to wear it. Paracord/keyring and carabiners may be a good option. The sheath has no hole in it if you're wanting one but it should be easy to make one. Some versions have a leather sheath but I didn't see one on Amazon. The black color is starting to grow on me but I really hoped there were more colors available, like white and/or blue to make it more Finnish looking, or a slate or smoke gray with sage green. The Martef line has good options like green and gold. Marttiini's website states "The regular carbon steel (Cr 0.3%; C 0.75%) has a hardness of HRC 55-57" in their Use & Care section, which is probably referring to the Condor Timberjack, so it's a good blade for various uses.5
