In 1946, the B. Knudsens Knivfabrikk A. S. had about 50 employees. The factory made all kinds of knives, including models that were very similar to the knives made by cutlers in Mora (after all, Broder Knudsen spent time at the Frost cutlery factory!).
However, the post-war production was not without problems, and the factory closed its doors around 1961. Below is a B. Knudsen knife (7 inches) made at the Ilen factory.
