Founded in 1649, Fiskars is an ancient company that began life as a manufacturer of nails, wire, hoes, and metal reinforced wheels from wrought iron. This Finnish company - headquartered in Helsinki - is best known today for its axes, knives, and scissors.
Fiskars made its first pair of scissors over 130 years ago from heavy forged steel. In 1967, it designed the orange-handled scissors that remain popular across the world today. With over 350 years of manufacturing history, you can trust in the Fiskars brand as a sign of uncompromising quality.
