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, whose task it is to carry on their proud heritage. Today, knife-maker Strømeng is one of just a few craftsmen who still produce knives for the Sami people.
The knives' special features have been retained: the carbon steel blade, handle made from slow-growing birch and brass fittings on the sheaths. The Same knife is the same as it has been for hundreds of years, and the workshop's modern production methods guarantee a successful result - every time.
This is why the Norwegian Armed Forces' elite troops carry Same knives with finger protection.
The Sami knives that are 7" or longer can be used to open cans without ruining the edge.
