Fallkniven NL2 Fixed Blade 7.8 in Satin Blade Leather Sheath NL2L
Together with Thor the one-eyed Odin is considered the highest-ranking god in the Norse sagas. Accompanied by his bearers of knowledge the two ravens Hugin and Munin he was the undisputed ruler of Valhalla. NL2 Odin is a powerful adaptable knife with its blade in our laminated VG10 steel. The striking action is excellent and the knife does not feel the least clumsy. When it comes to the Northern Light Series 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 from 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 6.5 mm 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. The 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 use again.
