Thank you very much for sharing this!

Is this some kind of a knife in front? Can we see some detailed photos of it?

It looks like one of these; https://www.marttiini.fi/epages/MarttiiniShop.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/MarttiiniShop/Products/240010  https://www.marttiini.fi/epages/MarttiiniShop.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/MarttiiniShop/Products/250010

I have a 240 myself, minus the badges. Handy piece of kit. Michael, is the blade engraved?

As far as I've understood, it is not uncommon in Finland for different military courses/schools to have a knife (well, scabbard...) manufactured as a souvenir. I can't remember whether I saw any when I was in Rovaniemi some 20 years ago (the Marttiini knife factory is in Rovaniemi). Maybe our Finnish members can shed some light on the matter?

OK, just the standard picture, then. I know you could have the blade custom engraved with your name at the factory shop. Thanks for asking your friend.
