The History of Mora Knives
The strong foundations of Frosts Knivfabrik date back to 1891 when Frost-Erik Ersson returned to his home village of Östnor in Mora, after working in North America for four years as a lumberjack. Upon his return he soon started a factory making products such as sleds and carriages, along with timber handling tools and knives.
During 1912, businessmen Krång-Johan Eriksson and Lok-Anders Mattsson founded the knife-making factory, Eriksson & Mattssons Knivfabrik and the company would eventually become known by the name of KJ Eriksson AB. Nearly 100 years and many thousands of knives later, in 2005 KJ Eriksson AB acquired Frosts Knivfabrik, and the company changed its name to what it is today - Mora of Sweden AB.
