Knife Knowledge

When you’re cooking in the kitchen, chop vegetables and then scrape down what is cut in the salad bowl, always make it a habit to turn the knife over and scrape with the back of the knife. If you scrape with the knife edge, the outermost foil-thin part of the knife edge is bent sideways and is clearly visible under a microscope. This is exactly the part that a sharpening steel has the task of straightening.

My grandfather KJ Eriksson

My grandfather Krång-Johan Eriksson was born in October 1889 in the village of Östnor, just north of Mora, in the village that would later become well known for, among other things, its knives. The metal industry had already gained a foothold in the village and he grew up in a craft and industrial environment with good opportunities to earn a living. Johan showed his business talent early on when he was 12-year-old and went to his big sister who had a café next to the church where he could buy buns and bread and then cycle around in the villages and sell them. It is said that he already by then earned as much as an adult man with permanent work.


Anders Zorn & Morakniv

The artist Anders Zorn is probably quite familiar to most Swedes but also known abroad as he became world-famous for his portrait paintings and made a fortune painting, among other things, several American presidents. That Anders Zorn also designed a knife may not be as well known.

Classic 1891 is temporarily paused

Since the kitchen series Classic 1891 was launched in 2014, it has become a favourite amongst many knife users. The high-quality blade of Swedish stainless steel with the classic barrel-shaped handle in red-stained birch has not only been used in exclusive restaurant kitchens around the world but also at the barbecue party with friends and at the Christmas table. Over the years, the characteristic ferrule with the Dala coat of arms has strengthened the knives identity as well as the Morakniv brand.
