The modern Finnish Army is pretty much the continuation of the WWII army with similar traditions. This troper served as conscript in the Finnish Army. The same tropes apply very much which applied in the WWII. On being a Knife Nut: this troper served in the Engineering Company of Reserve Officer Academy, and not only did we get class knives, we also got engineer officers' knives at graduation. So we basically got two commemoration knives, fully functional and good for both as tools and as sidearms.
