Knifesmith Strømeng

The real Sami knife should be a lasting companion. Just as good for hunting and fishing as when you set up camp in the forest or in the mountains. A useful tool at home or in the cabin.

The Strømeng family’s ancestors brought blacksmithing to Karasjok at the end of the 18th century. Since then, the family has passed down the craft traditions from generation to generation. Today Knivsmed Strømeng is one of the few companies that manufactures knives for, among other things, today’s Sami.

The new knife forge, located by the bridge in the centre, is a popular visitor destination in Karasjok. Bus groups and individuals choose to get an insight into the production of the well-known Strømeng knives.

The same knife is probably one of the most practical pieces of hiking equipment available. But the Sami knife also has its own “magic power”. From ancient times and in Sami folk medicine, the knife has a magical healing power that was used at the time to stop blood, relieve gout and remove boils.
