  • Don’t bring your husband here if you’re short on time. This place is amazing- every handle is handmade by Palli in his shop and handles are made of local wildlife, like reindeer horn, horse hooves and whale bones. Palli is incredibly helpful, even to us spastic Americans who were interested in buying the prettiest knife. Highly recommend a stop to here and Alafoss next store, a very fun pit stop
  • I bought knives here 5 years ago of excellent quality and craftsmanship for about 200 euro a piece. Now as Pali has become closer to retirement thé prices are not only stratospheric but the blades are mostly imported massed produced some from Japan and some from Germany with a piece of horse hood or reindeer horn slapped on for a handle . As a knife collector I can see thé finish has dropped in line with the tourist boom. The same knives now are 900 euro and up ! Buy online from thé US for one third the cost and you are getting the exact same blade. Other blades are very low quality stainless that are not stamped and upon close inspection I can see are very mild steel. Like the ice caves I would catégorisé this as another Icelandic Tourist trap !
  • Pálli was Kind and willing to answer any questions. Amazing knives and some other artisanal products, carvings made by his brother etc. I bought a carving knife with a Birch handle and horse hoof detail. Haven't used it yet but can't wait to try it out.
  • I took my two sons to Palli's knifemaking class in Mosfellsbær. We had a great time making a one-of-a-kind souvenir. I wanted my kids to take home something that was more authentic than what you could get at the gift shop. He fed us a great lunch of traditional Icelandic foods. It was a nice way to wrap up our trip to this beautiful country.
  • Lots of beautifully hand crafted knives and cutlery. Well worth the visit.
