    The Norwegian folk-art tradition reaches back to the days of the Vikings and continues to be vibrant and active today. The class choices at Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum's Folk Art School reflect the varied opportunities in Norwegian folk art, including fiber arts, woodworking, rosemaling, food, jewelry, and knifemaking.

    This guy knows Scandinavian style knives. If you are close and can make it, I think it would be worth your time.
