Svartkrutt.net is owned and maintained me whose name is Øyvind Flatnes. I'm a Norwegian black powder shooter and I started this web site in February 2000. The ambition was to provide Norwegians with a black powder site in our native language, but since then most of the content is also translated to English. I'm also the author of a black powder book, which was published in March 2005. This book is currently available in Norwegian only.
On svartkrutt.net you can read my articles about various black powder related activities, participate on the international discussion board, chat or find interesting black powder or antique firearms on the market pages. The discussion forum has become a valuable archive of interesting articles. Sign up and participate!
