Fallkniven NL5L VG10W Wolfram Steel. 

 

In Norse mythology, Idun was the goddess of fertility, and was responsible for guarding the apples that ensured the gods eternal youth. To many, she was also a symbol of love and rebirth, and in a famous poem she was referred to as the lover of the gods (ása leika). Unlike earlier knife models in the Northern Lights series, the NL5 is a little rounder and softer in form, and therefore an excellent choice as a hunting knife. The straight, fairly generous leather grip gives complete control over the powerful laminated VG10 blade. The NL5L is as attractive as it is effective especially in the hands of the experienced hunter. When it comes to the Northern Light Series nothing has been spared to make this knife as strong, beautiful and comfortable as possible. The knife is a pleasure to look at and a thrill to use.

 

The laminated blade is forged with an edge of VG10W steel to which we have added tungsten (W). In general, the addition of tungsten means that the edge becomes substantially more solid and keeps the sharpness better, at least that is what our own tests have showed. And the sides are made of a tough, all-stainless 420J2 steel. This excellent combination of metals brings together all conceivable and desirable knife properties including resilience, resistance to torque and edge-durability all in a single blade.

 

The 5 mm thick blade itself is plenty strong enough for all reasonable tasks, but with the laminate technology one can expect an additional 20% strength in the form of resistance to bending compared to an non-laminated VG10 blade.
