Fallkniven Frej Model FKNL4

Model NL4 Fallkniven Frej is not only a stunningly beautiful and compact knife -  it is, as with all Fallkniven, superbly functional.

The blade is made out of laminated VG10 steel, where the edge is made of their renowned VG10 steel and the sides consist of tough, all-stainless 420J2 steel. This combination is excellent and it brings together many desirable properties in the form of resilience, resistance to torque and edge-durability in a single blade. A 5 mm thick blade in itself 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 Ox-hide: sadly a material that is usually overlooked by manufacturers, but which gives a superb, rugged grip. It ages beautifully and as the years pass, it acquires an attractive brown patina. 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 put to use again.

Fallkniven manufacture the convex edge, they consider this to be the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength, and of course the NL4 Frej knife features this.

Knife officionardos who inderstand knife making techniques, know that such an edge can only be made by hand. 99.99% of all production knives don’t have this type of edge. Knives in general are mass produced, where CNC robots and grinders shape the blades as best they can. The machines are loaded with stacks of blades so that production can go on 24 hours a day and the result is quite often really good – good knives at affordable prices. However, for top-drawer strength, corrosion-resistance, edge durability and design from your working blade, then the machine hasn’t been made that can come even close to the craftsmanship of a trained, skilled knifesmith.

The Frej is a neat, well ballanced knife exuding the highest build and functional quality. A superb companion for trips into the wilderness.

Supplied with a black high quality leather sheath.

A Pre-owned knife from a private collection and un-used condition, supplied with original Box and packaging - never sharpened.
