It was the breath-taking scenery around Hardanger in Norway, with its fjords and majestic mountains, that inspired Odd Leikvoll to start Hardanger Bestikk in 1958. Odd Leikvoll placed great importance on good quality and this vision still permeates the company today.
Over the years, Odd Leikvoll has designed several best-selling collections including Ramona, which is one of Hardanger Bestikks most popular. Ramona and many others by Odd Leikvoll's cutlery clearly showcases the traditional craftwork found at Hardanger Bestikk. This tradition has since passed on to Rune Leikvoll, who took over the company from his father.
