Founded on the harsh south-west coast of Norway in 2015, Tyrfing Innovation descends from the ancient Vikings. The Viking era was known for its brutality and the Vikings as raiders, but they were in fact no better or worse than other communities of that time.
Conceptions of the Vikings as violent, piratical heathens who plundered and colonized are complicated by the fact that they were also known for their innovative and entrepreneurial exploration of the world. They were sailors, craftsmen, merchants and settlers.
The modern Viking is an individual who pursues an idea, takes on challenges and looks for adventure. A modern Viking looks beyond the horizon and finds new solutions to old problems – those creative enough to think differently.
