250 km north of the Arctic Circle, along the same latitude as middle Greenland and the northernmost regions of Canada. The village was founded with its first permanent house in 1670. Reindeer husbandry is one of the area’s most important industries and Karesuando lies within the Könkämä same by reindeer-herding area.
The knives we craft in Karesuando are adapted to our environment of the barren, arctic climate, Northern Lights and Midnight Sun. We make genuine products that are shaped by centuries of handicraft traditions and natural raw materials.
