The scout knives were developed in the beginning of the 1930’s, making them a modern classic after 85 years of production. When this knife first saw the light of day, the new, flat knife sheath was a differentiating detail. It was both simple to sew and manufacture, so the entire knife became commercially viable and popular.
The first Buschcraft model was developed after a request to put the blade from the Mora 2000 on the handle of the classic 911-handicraft knife. What started out as an experiment became a great success and resulted in several more models based on existing blades and handles. At the same time, we developed the new soft belt loop as a complement to the belt clip. Models such as Forest, Triflex, Forest Camo, Desert Camo and Force soon were released.
Companion was created in the same spirit as Bushcraft. When the worn out Clipper tools needed replacing, we decided to update the handle and sheath geometry for the Craft range. The result was TopQ and later also HighQ on the tools side, which became Companion in the outdoor segment. During the following years, the series was completed with Military Green and Hi-Vis Orange, and with bright color mixes. After a while, Companion HeavyDuty also arrived with its slightly stronger handle and thicker blade. Today, we are in the midst of adding stainless HD blades to the range.
In 2014, the 7 knives in the Pro range were launched, with the single largest machinery investment in the history of the company being made at the same time. We acquired “Gabriel,” our name for the injection molding facility. The knives in this range are primarily intended for handicraft usage, but this hasn’t prevented outdoor enthusiasts from using the knives in outdoor recreation. This is most obvious in the USA where both Pro C and the classic 511 are very popular entry-level models.
Our knives in the Expert range, which are primarily for more experienced users, are a further development of Bushcraft Black and similar knives. We have enhanced the knife sheath with a MOLLE cover that allows the knife to attach to MOLLE rucksacks for example. A very flexible and popular function.
Now we have taken the properties once developed for the camp fire and adapted them to the needs of a modern kitchen. Together with international top chef Johan Jureskog, we have developed a series of kitchen knives for the restaurant kitchen as well as the for the home chef.
