FallKniven NL1 Northern Light Thor Bowie, 10 Inch Laminated VG-10 Blade, Stacked Leather Handle. Model NL1. It's a strong chopper of world-class quality, where 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. This ensures qualities that no other manufacturer in the world can offer.

Everyone who has used a chopper knows that it is designed for heavy use, which makes great demands on the blade and handle. 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 impervious to water. Dryness might cause glimps on the handle but they disappear when the knife is put to use again.

We are persisting with the convex edge, since we consider this to be the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength, and of course our new NL1 Thor knife features this. 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 quotes. 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.

Therefore, we take great pride in being able to present the first model in our new Northern Lights Series - the NL1 Thor. Well aware that only the most quality-conscious will appreciate it's assets. It felt natural to give this chopper the name of the Aesir's strongest and most powerful god, the ruler of the Aesir's domicile, Asgard, the strong, red-bearded god of thunder - Thor.

The sheath is made of black leather of the highest quality.

I have owned this tool for approx. 12 years. Living in Alaska this tool is used extensively from field dressing bear, moose to building wilderness shelters. This Thor has never let me down even though I have used it in conditions that would have destroyed many high end knives. The edge retention is incredible. The only way I would buy another Thor is if I left this one on a river bank and the high tide took it away. Obviosly Fallkniven knows how to craft cutlery. I do own many other high end knives such as Chris Reeves Project One A2, Tops Eagle 1095, Bear and Sons Damascus, Harvey King D2 CLEAVER, some custom blades, damacus, etc. but When it comes to heavy hard wilderness use I default to my Thor. The VG 10 LAMINATE is excellent. To add to my overall collection I will be buying the Odin and the Wilderness Tools. At 60 years of age I still have many ventures to pursue here in Alaska. Thank you Fallkniven for your outstanding quality of tools you create.
