We own this one ourselves and it's one of our every day favourites. We call it "Susan" after Susan Boyle, not the most glamorous knife but boy does it have talent! Fallkniven have focused solely on the blade with this series of knives, that is where all the money is on this one.
Not the prettiest but boy does this knife perform? A good all rounder due to its size. Built to last and to high standards. Super sharp and its amazingly durable edge means it stays sharper for longer so you can just concentrate on the joy of cooking.
What we thought about this knife
We have personally tested and reviewed this knife to give you an honest and personal opinion about it and this is how it rates. Remember these scores are a reflection of the company these knives keep, all our knives are great (or we wouldn't sell them) but we can't give them all 5/5. A low score doesn't mean it's a poor knife, it just might be out-trumped by one of our other amazing knives.

Our aim is to measure everything as accurately as possible but some specifications (such as hardness for example) are provided by the manufacturer and therefore should be used as a guide only.
What you get with the knife
Like the knife, the packaging will win no beauty competitions but you get a sturdy white box with a HUGE Fallkniven logo all over it. Inside your knife blade is teasingly hidden/covered by a card board sleeve.
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
