Rest In Peace
Karl Erik Hagstr
(Made in Sweden)
18th March 1932 - 7th July 2010

Generous hospitality

I had the honour and distinct pleasure of meeting Karl Erik Hagström a few times. He was a modest man in many ways and never quite understood the interest in his business so many years after it had ceased production. He always had a glint in his eyes, he always knew when to pass a question by, but was equally generous with his recollections in recorded interviews. He took time to find answers and provide papers and pictures to make this site more interesting. He was worried about the future of the brand and the heritage of his former enterprise, but realised time moves on.

His hospitality, sense of fun, level-headedness and generous nature will not be forgotten. Now his time is over, we thank Karl Erik for what he achieved in his life, and for all the lives he touched along the way.

This is how I will remember the man. A wry smile and a joke or a question just to check if you are really listening.

Deciding to take us Moose sighting - even though he had to be carried in and out of his car. Then ordering the driver (me) left, right, over there. No hope of seeing anything, but we all had great fun!.

A very special man.

The Scandi-Man

There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?

Plenty has been said already and
will be said forever forward probably.
Only you know what's right for you!
