Fallkniven: SK2 Embla - Desert Ironwood - Leather Sheath
The design of this beautiful hunting knife follows the basic principles of Swedish minimalism – that the design should be simple, neat and functional.
To this minimalist foundation, we add our laminated cobalt steel, which is renowned for its ability to take and keep an excellent edge. If you’ve had enough of knives that become dull immediately they detect the proximity of a moose or a wild boar, the SK2 Embla is one of the finest and best options available. Of course, the edge is convex, the sharpest/strongest edge construction we know of, and what’s more, the oldest in human history. For handle material we have chosen desert ironwood, an extremely hard and compact wood, so dense that it does not float in water. It can be treated with any kind of furniture polish, gun stock oil or other liquids containing thinner and linseed oil. Should the knife happen to get dull, use one of our DC4 combination whetstones. A black, low-hanging leather sheath houses the knife when not in use.

The category is between 3” to 4” this knife in my opinion is the best in its class . Nice classic look high-end and sturdy materials . Happy to own it .
To start... I am a huge fan and collector of Bark River knives and own over 25+ different blades styles and steels, of which, non disappoint me. I have wanted to purchase a Fallkniven for years and my go to was the Northern Light series. Regardless of that, I saw this blade... So I dropped a dime and got it... Perfect size, laminated exceptional steel, custom made heavy duty dangler sheath that contours to the blade perfectly. The handle could use a little bit more contour, as BRK has perfected, but there are no hot spots. The steel is extremely sharp and impressive and the lamination line is exquisite! I have many many beautiful and functional fixed blades but I will be purchasing another Fallkniven very very soon!
