Fallkniven TK2 - seriously good
Even before you unwrap the TK2 the packaging is screaming quality and removing the heavy presentation box lid the lucky owner is treated to a cascade of quality leather aroma, the three crowns emblazoned sheath patiently waiting to receive the beautiful offering designated TK2. Lifting from the custom velvet moulding the knife has a good weight and sits very well in the hand, the handle contours predictably positioned exactly right. The wonderfully sculpted blade with its distal curves begs to be used and it certainly looks like it could tackle any task you are likely to throw at it - at 4mm thick at its widest point it is built for action. I think the blade profile is just about spot-on but any knife is only as good as the sharp section and the TK2 is frighteningly sharp and thanks to the G3 laminate steel construction it should stay that way for much longer than conventional knives. Although the black Thermorun handle could be described as the plainest of the TK offerings it is ideally suited to hunting tasks such as deer gralloching (gutting) where a hygienic knife is mandatory. In summing up the TK2 is a credit to the knife maker's craft with first rate materials and superb construction and although the knife has a top end price tag quality has never come cheap however this one is well worth the money.
