As a sight, this place is somewhat limited being just one larger room at the ground floor of the building the company used have the manufacturing earlier (nowadays the company is about 5km away and the building is mainly used by a doctor's practice). Half of the space is a small museum like exhibition with some old models etc, and the second half is basically an outlet shop. There are plenty of knifes available without the plastic packaging. With the exception of the ones with some small, usually optical, defects, the knives cost the same as in the normal stores, and some you can get even cheaper from a large supermarket. Still, here you can check how the product fit your hand and how they really look.

90 year old knives house…One of the few buildings spared during the second world war. Take a look at the mini museum of old knives and pick souvenirs to bring back.

Traditional finnish knives.
Very nice knives with a huge range of types/prices.
I have looked at the knives our guides used and there were a lot of Marttiinin.
Don't miss - they have a defectives section with 20% off the list price. Some of the defects are almost none existent....
If you are not going for the defectives then the prices are the same here, inn the mall or in the santa village shop.

In this shop you can buy local made knives which are really good quality, and you pay them the right price for that!
Unfortunately it is not possible anymore to visit the old factory but they have made a little (very little) museum inside the shop.
There also are other shops around the town so you can see them everywhere, but this is the original one
