Norske Tools


Founded in January 2016 to serve the North American LBM market, Norske Tools was started by an experienced senior leadership team with over 75 years of combined experience in the power tool accessory (PTA) industry.

Norske has one simple goal: to improve and simplify the daily work of its professional users. They offer a wide range of innovative power tool acces­sories for the non-tradeable (buy new) and tradeable (buy new with trade-in) markets. Product categories include impact torsion bits, saw blades, hole saws, oscillating accessories, diamond blades and more.

All PTAs under the Norske (non-tradeable) and Trade-A-Blade (tradeable) brands are engineered with careful consideration for what profes­sionals require to be at the absolute top of their game. All products receive rigorous testing at the company’s test­ing laboratory and test stations in Vancouver, BC, in order to guarantee the same quality of all its products.

Quality and innovation are at the core of Norske’s values and its aim to lead the industry in developing inno­vative solutions that deliver increased productivity, reliability and longevity for its users. By leveraging its technical expertise and strong global manufac­turing relationships to shorten lead times, Norske is able to develop first-to-market products.

For instance, the company’s “Flextech” impact torsion bits use a proprietary tool steel and heat treat­ment process for maximum strength and durability and can typically withstand up to 50% more stress than other impact bits. This means “Flextech” bits last longer and break less often, keeping customers happier and coming back for more.

Norske Tools’ “Reversa Cut” framing blade features an innovative two-in-one design that doubles blade life. Radical twin tooth technology provides bi-directional cutting: when the car­bide dulls in one direction, the blade can be flipped 180° for a second set of teeth to save time and money.

Also worth noting: Norske Tools was the first Canadian company to partner with Fein and introduce Starlock OTAs. Norske Tools’ OTAs can be used on a full range of profes­sional oscillating tools, including those made by Bosch, Fein and other power tool manufacturers.

Norske and Trade-A-Blade products are available at select Home Hardware, RONA, Timber Mart, Windsor Plywood, Castle Building Centers, Slegg Building Materials, Gescan and Roofmart. For more information visit
