The founder of EKA is Hadar Hallström, who opened his folding knife factory, Hadar Hallström Kniffabriks Aktiebolag in Eskilstuna in 1882. In 1917 the factory was bought by Johan Elmqvist and changed its name to Eskilstuna KniffabriksAktiebolag - later abbreviated as EKA-knivarAB.
Until the mid-20th century, Eskilstuna, famous for its metalworking traditions, was known as a city of knives. More than 40 factories specializing in the production of knives were located in the city at that time. During the crisis in the knife industry of the 50s, EKA remained the only company producing quality serial knives in Eskilstuna. Today we are the leading manufacturer of folding knives in Northern Europe.
Manufacturing and craftsmanship since 1882.
EKA combines centuries-old traditions with modern production technologies. Each knife is subject to the strictest quality controls and comes with a 10-year warranty. EKA knives are known all over the world for their elegance, functional design and first-class quality materials.
While working with the EKA knife, pay attention and feel how it lies in your hand, its strength and excellent sharpness are beyond usual. Flexibility and customer service are the keywords for us at EKA. A small and efficient administrative department made up of dedicated staff and quality work ensures that the client's needs are met.
