Fallkniven Northern Lights NL3 NJORD Fixed Blade Knife &Black Leather Sheath. Fallkniven Northern Light Series NL3L Njord Fixed Blade Knife with Black Leather Sheath.This Fallkniven NL3L Njord is new. However it is the survivor of a fire that ravaged one of my distributers warehouses. The knife and sheath are in excellent condition, but the outside factory packaging was smoke damaged and was therefore discarded.
There are some spots on the sheath that you can see when held in certain light, and some VERY faint spots on the blade. You can see these in my photos. We are an Authorized Fallkniven Dealer, so you will be the ORIGINAL OWNER of this BEAUTIFUL, Genuine Fallkniven collectible! The photos shown are of the EXACT knife and sheath you will receive.The Fallkniven model NL3L NJORD is a strong, well balanced knife that is a joy to handle. 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. We can now present a world first as regards the blade - it's in 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 unquestionably the best, 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 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. Our handle consists of specially selected ox-hide: 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 is also impervious to water. Dryness might cause glimps on the handle but they disappear when the knife is put to use again.
Fallkniven persists with the convex edge, since they consider this to be the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength, and of course the new NL1 Thor knife features this style edge. 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.Knives in general are, of course, mass-produced, where CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) 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, if you want top-drawer strength, corrosion-resistance, edge durability and design, the machine hasn't been made that can come even close to the craftsmanship of a trained, skilled knifesmith.
The sheath is made of black leather of the highest quality. All weights and measurements are approximate.Where youll be able to see ALL of my available items.
