Which bushcraft relevant products are still made in Scandinavic countries?

I mean the production, not a headquarter and design office that orders equipment that is in fact made somewhere else.

I think we should count in here Greenland, Iceland, Faeroe islands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

Please don't assume here something, but tell us facts that you know for sure.

A lot of equipment that was made a couple of years ago in Scandinavia isn't made there any more. (The brands still exist, but the current production is located somewhere else.)

The Finns don’t consider themselves Scandinavian, just Finnish. But they produce a lot of good quality equipment. Sako make fantastic rifles and you have Lapua bullets and brass for the discerning rifleman, also Vihtavuori gunpowder. Savotta for military equipment/bushcrafting bits and pieces, although some manufacture has shifted to Estonia. Vision make some great fishing kit and you are spoiled for choice when it comes to edged tools - I like the Marttiini brand but there are numerous others. The Finns make good steel.

The small knife makers are interesting and it's surely worth to mention them.
Should I need a ship full of steel I probably would call Sandvik or Fiskars, but most of us just need a smaller amount of products and often appreciate an individual item.
Should somebody know a grandma who sells hand knitted pullovers on the faeroe islands it also should be mentioned, because she will need a bit PR more than Volvo.

Yes, I know. But who and where exactly is the question. I would like to read here the names of the manufacturers and makers!

What brands would those be and where are they made now?

Don't Oyo make knives and cutlery still in Geilo, Norway? I bought a folder of theirs in an outdoor shop in the town then saw it a year later in a shop in the UK for the same cost. There's another knife factory there too I think but can't remember the name.

Fiskars makes a lot more than garden tools isn't it?
I have seen at Wikipedia that they are huge!

Are Savotta packs still made in Finland? Mine have the neat little Finnish flag stitched into them that suggests they might be...

Yes, I think kitchen and table ware in various forms is much larger than tools.
I think there's a few user knife manufacturers who make more. Opinel from France for example. I think I saw brusletto make cutlery too. The two knife brands who make in Geilo, Norway also make a variety of other products. However Fiskars are bigger in their range. I really found out about them through gardening.
