The 5 mm thick blade itself is plenty strong enough for all reasonable tasks, but with the laminate technology one can expect an additional 20% strength in the form of resistance to bending compared to an non-laminated VG10 blade. The beautiful handle consists of specially selected oxhide that gives a sure and rugged grip. It ages with elegance and as the years pass it acquires an attractive brown patina. The handle is unaffected by oil and solvents and impervious to water. When the oxhide drys out, small cracks on the handle can appear, but they disappear when the knife is put to use again.
Fallkniven Frey NL4L Hunting Knife
- Made by Fällkniven -
Frey was the god of peace in the Norse sagas, but also the god who rules over fertility and prosperity. He was king of trolls and elves, beings that until recently were an everyday part of life in the farming community. When it comes to the Northern Light Series nothing has been spared to make this knife as strong, beautiful and comfortable as possible. The knife is a pleasure to look at and a thrill to use.
Fallkniven believes the convex edge to be the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength. Anyone who knows anything about knife making knows that such an edge can only be made by hand, and that’s why 99.99% of all knives don’t have that kind of edge. Each Northern Lights series knife comes with a high-quality black leather sheath.
