Fiskars

FISKARS Founded 1649

Iron smelting is said to have taken place among the Calybes of Armenia, subjects of the Hittite Empire, at about 1500 BCE.

When their empire collapsed around 1200 BCE, the various tribes took the knowledge of iron making with them, spreading it across Europe and Asia. The knowledge of ironworking in all of Europe and Western Asia can ultimately be traced to this source.
