Bjorklund is the only cheese slicer producer in Norway, and the first in the world. Quality products from their factory are recognized around the world.
Thor Bjorklund from Lillehammer invented the cheese slicer in 1925. He was carpenter by profession and constructed the cheese slicer because of the irritation based on the problems with cutting nice slices of the cheese with a regular knife and based his idea on a woodwork’s plane.
Even though the cheese slicer has developed over the years, the principles of production are still the same as they were in the beginning. The patent was developed in a way that makes it easy to make slicers for different types of cheese. Since 1925, the factory has produced more than 50 million cheese slicers.
Bjorklund products, which are still produced in Norway, as they have been for more than 90 years have become a classic symbol of Norwegian innovation, quality and design.
