Vidar Eide is currently the oldest known living person in Norway. An article was just published about him two days ago.

He still lives on his own in the same house he was born in back in 1914.

from mendocino:

Mr. Eide is still creating hand-crafted shoehorns (skoskeier) as of 15 November 2023

He also included a hand-written note: 

"Handmade shoehorn of Norway's oldest man! 109 kroner, one krone per year".
