Award wining Swedish maker, Pär-Olof Eklund lives with his family (wife and 4 children) in Skellefteå, a city in the north of Sweden.

The majority of knives he makes are traditional Sami-style knives known as antlerknives. Each one is one-of-a-kind in the world. The blades are purchased from the most skilful smiths in Northern Sweden. All of the remaining work is done by Pär-Olof during the dark winter months -- from making the sheaths and handles to sewing the leather and engraving the knives. He uses traditional Nordic materials: antler from reindeer and moose, curly grained root from birch and sallow, and leather from reindeer and cattle. The engraving is traditionally carved with a knife, and colored with an ink made from bark from alder-trees.

Eklund first encountered these knives as articles for everyday use in the village where he was born. Järvträsk is a small village not so far from the arctic circle. His first knife was made in the beginning of 1980, and he has made a lot of knives since then. Eklund is appreciative for the input he has received from many great makers including Randolf Lindblom (the grand old man in knifemaking) and Ulf Avander. Taking a course on horn engraving led by Jonny Walker Nilsson was extremely inspiring.
