In Norse mythology, Idun was the goddess of fertility, and 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 poem she was referred to as the lover of the gods (ása leika).
Unlike earlier models in the Northern Lights series, NL5 is a little rounder and softer in form, and therefore an excellent choice as a hunting knife. The straight, fairly generous grip in leather gives complete control over the powerful blade in laminate VG10 steel, and makes the knife a tool as attractive as it is effective in the hands of the experienced hunter.
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. 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.
Fallkniven Idun Northern Light Series No. 5. 8 1/2" overall. 4" laminated VG-10 steel blade is heat treated to HRC 59. Stacked leather handle with stainless guard and aluminum butt. Dark Brown leather belt sheath.
