The family names that tell our story

The family names that tell our story

There has always been a strong craft tradition in Mora, thanks to the proximity to Swedish nature, rich in materials such as iron ore and timber. People from Mora have made sharp knives for the rest of the world for more than 400 years.

As long as there have been knife makers in the area, Anders and Erik have dominated men’s first names for several generations, just as Anna and Kerstin have done for the women. In fact, children were often given the same name as their parents or grandparents. When there were too many people in the same village named Anders or Anna, a family name was added before the first name.

The family name could be taken from a previous relative’s skill, an ancestor’s name, or from some geographical phenomenon. Then an Anna could be named Smids-Anna, whose ancestors were a blacksmith, or Anders could be named Sol-Anders because he came from the neighbouring island, Sollerön.

You see, these family names share a common thread throughout our history. That’s why we proudly present our new collection of wooden-handled knives. The names of which come from people who in one way or another were involved in the foundation for knife manufacturing in Mora. With the knives Finn, Wit, Lok & Rombo, we look decades back in time and note that the story of our dear Morakniv begins long before our company first saw the light of day.

The story of Lok

The story of Lok

Another Anders who at the beginning of the 20th century sought his luck in the knife business was Lok-Anders Mattsson who, together with Krång-Johan Eriksson, founded the knife factory Eriksson & Mattsson’s Knivfabrik. With Lok-Ander’s ingenious touch and Krång-Johan’s business mind, prosperous conditions were created for the company we all know as Morakniv.

A kind observation
from the village archive

“Lok-Anders Mattsson became legendary for his peculiar technical talent during his lifetime. Locals had seen him walk to his workshop with a precise measurement between his hands, without losing the actual measurement. That’s who he was, and despite its absurdity, it was said to have been astonishingly accurate. Today, more than a century later, it’s still an understandable routine in Mora.”
