The Karesuandokniven AB is a factory, which produces huntingknives, blades, axes and Lapland-inspired handicrafts. The village where the company is located is called “Karesuando”. It is a small village with around 300 inhabitants in the very north of Sweden. 250 km north of the Arctic Circle. The company was founded 1975. During the first three decades it was grant-aided by the government to keep the old handicrafting traditions of Lapland alive. Since 2004 it has been in private ownership. We introduced the company to the international market, where there is a growing amount of customers, who appreciate the products.
We know our stuff
Okay, so now is the one time we´ll brag. Our knives are made with over 40 years of design experience. Our product crew has, with their skilled knifemaking experience, crafted over 200.000 knives and aditionally to that, over 1 million of single blades. That´s years and years of working with and learning about materials, trying different designs and figuring out why stuff works or doesn´t work.
Our company is more than 40 years old now. We are who we are, and we make what we make; a lot people love that, and for that we are eternally grateful.
