The story behind it all

Sandviken, a steel town


I was born in 1988, and have always been fascinated with making stuff with your hands. I grew up to try a lot of different crafts, and blacksmithing is one that got me caught. That, combined with my interest in cooking led me to trying to forge myself a kitchen knife. This was in the fall of 2014, and since then I have explored the world of knifemaking pretty intensively.


I am located in the town of Sandviken, a couple of hours north of Stockholm, Sweden. The city has a heavy history of steelmaking and manufacturing. I aim to provide hand made quality products in a price range that fits common people.
