Sweden

So we have one of my wife's friends who lives in Sweden come stay with us for 2 weeks soon.
Anything cool from Sweden I should have her bring? Might give her some $ and have her bring me some stuff if anything cool. I'm into hunting and fishing and of course grilling.

  • Mora knives. Google them.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Maybe a few swimsuit models... :D

    Seriously though, if, and I know they don't make this in Sweden, but they probably sell it there (and not here) the friend can get a hold of some real black forest ham from Bavaria - ain't no better thing to eat on the planet.

  • +1 on the Mora's, we can get them at Bushcraft Canada, I have a gutting knife, works well and holds a nice edge, a hunter's knife - have no idea if they make "kitchen" knives.

  • Thanks for tip. I'll have her check. I'd love a skinning/gutting knife.
    Any idea on the price of one?
    Boom
  • Also can you recommend a few? I figure this is a opportunity I won't have often, to get something from Sweden without paying shipping and/or something that's hard to get in states.

  • @nolaegghead I dunno if she can bring food. How would she transport that that'd be cost effective?

    She could duct-tape it to her belly and I think she wouldn't have to buy a second ticket :D

    I would think you could bring in at least some food - I honestly don't know the regs on that. 

    This stuff is "the bomb" (maybe not a good idea to bring it on a plane).  We'd get one as a gift every Christmas when we lived in Heidelberg.

  • @nolaegghead so have her try for Adler specifically?

    I think they're the original, but there are some other operations down there.  They smoke with fir needles - it will blow your mind.

    Looftlighter is a Swedish invention but it's probably cheaper to buy it in USA.

    could we not do that on the egg?

    It's basically a cure with a long cold smoke, and lots of aging, could be as long as a year.  Similar to prosciutto but with a fir smoke.

    There is also a cured smoked lamb called fenalar (sp?) that is amazing as well.

    Bought one of these Rosewood/SS fish spatulas from Sweden by Sveico.  Versatile tool and good quality.  Pairs nicely with the CI.

  • Thanks for tip. I'll have her check. I'd love a skinning/gutting knife. Any idea on the price of one?
    Mine was <$50, it has a "deluxe" handle, same steel was available for <$30. Had it for at least 10 years.
