The model NL1 is a strong chopper of world-class quality. 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 now present a world first in regards to the blade as it is 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 knife-smith.

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 its assets.

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