Fallkniven NL1 Fixed Blade 10 in Satin Blade Leather Sheath NL1L
Model NL1. Its a strong chopper of world-class quality where nothing has been spared to make the knife as strong beautiful and comfortable as possible. The knife is a pleasure to look at and a thrill to use. The blade is made of laminated VG10 steel where the edge is made of our now renowned VG10 steel and the sides consist of tough all-stainless 420J2 steel. This combination is good since it brings together all conceivable and desirable properties such as resilience resistance to torque and edge-durability in a single blade. A 7 mm (0.28?) thick blade would be strong enough for most tasks - with laminate technology one can expect an additional 20% strength in the form of resistance to bending as compared to an ordinary VG10 blade. Everyone who has used a chopper knows that it is designed for heavy use which makes great demands on the blade and handle. Our handle consists of specially selected oxhide: sadly a material that is usually overlooked by manufacturers but which gives a sure and rugged grip. It ages beautifully and as the years pass it acquires an attractive brown patina and it is unaffected by oil and solvents and impervious to water. Dryness might cause small cracks on the handle but they disappear when the knife is used again.
