Information about Fiskars
Fiskars Brands, Inc. is a subsidiary of Fiskars Corporation, which was founded in 1649 when a Dutch merchant was given a charter to establish a blast furnace and forging operation in the small village of Fiskars, near Helsinki. In the early years, Fiskars made nails, wire, hoes and metal reinforced wheels from pig iron.
As industrial and economic development accelerated in Europe, Fiskars Corporation began a tradition of being on the forefront of innovation, and expanded the knifeworks to become a premier steel and ironworks company, manufacturing agricultural machinery, steam engines and household utensils, including candlesticks, forks and scissors.
A billion scissors and still counting
Our first pair of Fiskars? scissors was created more than 130 years ago, and made of heavy, forged steel. Exciting new ideas helped us revolutionize the industry in the 20th century. The name Fiskars became synonymous with quality, and our tradition of innovation has continued to provide inspiration throughout the company. The orange-handled scissors have become our most well-known product and to date we have sold over a billion pairs worldwide.
