SWEDNL5: Northern Light Model Idun

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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
I love this knife, its perfect. The only thing is it does not have a protruding tang. It has a nickel butt. But unless you need a hammer, this knife is perfect.
