In 1886, our iconic brand was born. Today, it is still a symbol of quality. Discover the history that goes into every Bahco product. Everybody understood that steel with a quality for fishing hooks was perfect for saws and other cutting tools as well. It was a great advantage, a brand logo not including letters, language or sophisticated figures making it a symbol easy to recognize. As late as the nineteen fifties, one could still hear boreal forest workers asking for a saw "with the little fish"; as is still the case today in countries with developing literacy rates. A fishing hook must be hard and strong, but absolutely not brittle. At that time producing the combination "hard but tough" was an inconsistent and thorny metallurgic task, but the "Bessemer steel" from Göransson's steel mill delivered optimal quality.
