Welcome to EKA
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. At EKA a century of crafting tradition is combined with modern production technology. Each knife is subjected to most rigorous quality control and comes with a 10-year guarantee. EKA’s knives are known throughout the world for elegance, functional design and first-class materials. To work with an EKA knife; feel the grip, the strength and the excellent sharpness, is something above the ordinary.
Until the middle of the 20th century Eskilstuna was a real “knife town”. More than 40 factories specializing 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. Craftsmanship since 1882.
