Njord was the god of fertility in the Norse sagas and belonged to the Vanir clan. He was also the god of sailors and fishermen, and the ruler of coasts and beaches. The Fallkniven NL3 Njord is a strong, well-balance knife that is a joy to handle. It is hard to find a more attractive all-round knife and its strength of course lies in the laminated VG10W steel. When it comes to the Northern Light Series nothing has been spared to make the knife as strong, beautiful and comfortable as possible.
The Fallkniven NL3 Njord is the third largest model in Fällknivens Northern Lights Series. The combination of a super modern stainless steel laminate steel (VG10/420J2) does not only offer superior performance with its hand ground convex edge profile, it is also uncommonly beautiful.
The inspiration for this Fallkniven knife comes from thousand year old remains discovered in Viking excavations.It has been known for generations that the laminate blade offers exceptional strength and keenness. With today's technology, Fällkniven have been able to add a resilient layer of 420J2 stainless steel to a VG10 high carbon stainless steel base. They have combined the properties of two different steels that together form a blade that keeps an incredibleedge whilst withstanding heavy use.
The handle on Njord is made from stacked sections of specially selected oxhide 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.
Fallkniven have persisted with the convex edge profile given that this is the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength. A convex edge profile can only be achieved by hand, which is why such a small number of knives feature it.
This is an incredible knife of uncompromising quality which despite its size feels nimble in the hand and lends itself to a multitude of outdoor pursuits.
The knife comes with a black high quality leather sheath.
