About P. Holmberg Knives:

Pontus Homberg (1852-1893) founded his factory, Aktiebolaget Pontus Homberg, in 1876. Following his death in 1893, the company passed to his brother Fritiof Holmberg (1860-1911) and later to Fritiof’s sons, Fritiof Ragnar (1889-1916) and Fritiof Ruben (1893-1952). In 1951, Heljestrands Industries bought out the company, though they continued to produce barrel knives until at least 1954 (catalog No. 18). Ultimately, the company closed their doors in the early 1960s.
