The KK knife (the Kolt Knife) is a traditional designed knife where the clean lines dominate the blade, the handle and the sheath. The history of the design goes back to the times when the knife was a common tool in your daily life, no matter if you were a hunter or a farmer. The knife is not intended for waist belt carry. Instead, it is intended for parts of the body where access to the knife is at best, like in your pocket. By offering a safe, comfortable handle, and a very strong blade with an extremely sharp edge, the non-aggressive design provides a knife which should fit any hand, and any task. The safe click-lock, hygienic zytel sheath protects the edge and stores the knife safely when off duty.
Satin finish laminate 402J2/CoS steel, HRC 60.
The edge is convex, pretty thin so called ICE edge, Improved Convex Edge.
Wide, hidden tang construction, lanyard hole of standard size.
Thermorun handle with checkered sides.
Black stainless crossguard, securely fastened to the blade tang.
The sheath is in injection molded polyamide (zytel) where a lever is locking over the crossguard. The sheath has got a thumb press notch for releasing the knife from its sheath on top, the release power should be equivalent with the force of around 10 N (10 kp) or 1 kg. This force is adjusted with the thickness and length of the locking lever of the sheath. The sheath is made with small tolerances for avoiding the edge to faulty cut in the sheath.
About Cobalt Steel
With the addition of Cobalt to Fallknivens blade steel, the edge performance is better than VG10 and nearly equals Fallknivens 3G steel but at a lower cost since it is not a powder steel.
