I found a few pictures online today:

Sidenotes:
  • All wrappers are marked in Norwegian, or possible Danish.
  • The orange wrapper is 50% more expensive than the blue, possible because it's guaranties Swedish steel and have a hollow ground.
  • The blue and green wrappers held blades of "control grounded electro-steel".
  • The green wrapper is marked as a new model with a slot.
  • "Warranty for every blade"

What era do you suppose these are from? 1940s, perhaps, judging by the artwork?

Late 30's I would think, based on the spelling... not the early 40's, considering the War. Possible late 40's if they are Danish... written Danish and Norwegian are fairly close, and was closer back in the day.

Thinking about it; Å became an official letter in Norwegian in 1917 (replacing AA in most instances), but not before 1948 in Denmark... so that would indicate a Danish blade. But nothing is ever easy when it comes to Norwegian orthography; the use of AA continued in 'Riksmål'...

/Edit: I think the air-plane is supposed to evoke a DC-6 (in production from 1946) or a DC-4 (in production from 1942). Both were in use as passenger aircraft in Scandinavia after the war.
