I´d say that this is a Jubilee- bayonet just by the looks of it. The text Valmet, Tourulan tehdas (Valmet, Tourula factory) along with the shiny outlook indicates this IMO. I have never come across with one of these before but I could try to find more info.

Hi,

I was visiting a friend of mine and saw it on the table at the garrage.

I asked him where he got it and he told me he received it from the army while serving as a conscript in the costal artillery troops here in Finland. Here in Finland, it´s a custom to give some remembrance items to a conscript if he/she has done someting to earn it. From a good service, for example.
Those items are donated by the Finnish Defence Forces or by some active reservist organisation. My military police guild gives a knive twice a year to a conscript serving in Santahamina garrison. The price goes to someone who the active duty officers select.
