Fallkniven has been making knives for a relatively short time — only twenty years or so. How far they’ve come in such a short period of time. They are now known as one of the foremost makers of specialty knives and, as their marketing literature states, supply knives to the King of Sweden himself.
The knife featured here is their U2 model. It strikes an excellent blend of utility and compactness. It’s not easy to find really high-quality knives with shorter blade lengths — this knife certainly satisfies that need.
The blade is made of SGPS laminate powder steel, which allows it retain its edge better than nearly any other type of blade steel available. That blade is hardened to a Rockwell Hardness of 64, extremely high for this type of knife.
This is an ideal go-anywhere knife. The blade length is a relatively compact two and half inches, and the entire knife measures less than four inches overall. It weighs just one and a half ounces.
The lockback mechanism is standard and keeps the blade in the open position securely. The handle is an attractive black Zytel.
