Commentaires : Johan Engstrom (Joh) was born in 1846 near Eskilstuna, Sweden. He was just 13 years old when he started his career by working in a razor blade factory. He studied and worked in Germany and England for many years. In 1873 he came back to Eskilstuna and started his own factory with four employees. He started with razors and smaller swords. In 1882 he started to make these 'Swedish barrel knives'. They became popular all over the world. Johan died in 1915 and his company ended shortly thereafter. Eskilstuna, Sweden is a city that grew enormously during the Industrial Revolution and became one of the most industrious cities in Sweden, having the nick name "City of Steel". Aside from barrel knives, the city also produced cutlery, scissors, keys, machine tools, precision instruments and firearms
