    Knivsmed Strømeng

    This shop calls on five generations of local experience to create original handmade Sami knives for everything from outdoor to kitchen use. They're real works of art, but stay true to the Sami need for durability, made with birch-and-brass handles and varying steel quality. Prices start at around 1000kr for a Sami kid's knife up to 2000kr for the real deal. To get here, turn southwest on Rv92 towards Ivalo at the lower of two main roundabouts along the E6 in the centre of town. It's on your left after crossing the bridge.
