The genuine same knife...

The Strømeng family's ancestors brought the art of knife making to Karasjok in the 18th century. Since then, this craft has carried on from generation to generation within the family. Today, knife-maker Strømeng is one of just a few craftsmen who still produce knives for the Sami people.
