EKA-knivar AB was founded in 1882 by Hadar Hallström, under the name Hadar Hallström Kniffabriks Aktiebolag. In 1917 the company name was changed to Eskilstuna Kniffabriks Aktiebolag – later abbreviated as EKA-knivar AB.

Until the middle of the 20th century Eskilstuna was a real “knife town”. More than 40 factories specialising in knife manufacture resided in the city. With its focus on quality and its will to develop, EKA managed to stay in the market. Today we are northern Europe’s leading folding knife manufacturer.

In addition to folding knives EKA’s product line has been augmented with fixed blade knives for outdoor living, hunting and household use. After a hundred years in the business EKA has become a well-known name, associated with quality and craftsmanship. Our knives are known throughout the world for their strength, safety and first-class design.

Proficiency, precision and experience of outdoor living as well as hunting and fishing are the foundation of our good reputation. EKA places the same high demands on all products; from folding and fixed blade knives to saws and accessories.

We usually say that there are three basic requirements for manufacturing a quality knife:

1. The steel in the knife must be of high quality. EKA uses stainless steel from Sandvik in its knives, a steel with the technical description 12C27.

2. The hardening of the knife must be 57-59 Rockwell C.

    3. The edge must be well made. To guarantee a sharp, durable edge we use an edge angle of 40 degrees.
