Not a classic looker but the performance is great. For this knife you are paying for the blade. It's built for outstanding performance and durability.

The blade on this Santoku style knife is one of the best in the business. The handle is made from the same super grip material used for special forces combat knives. This knife is all about performance rather than relying on good looks.

Fallkniven have a history of pushing knife technology that shows in this great light weight knife that is a joy to use and comfy to hold.

Performance

One of the finest western manufacturers' knives if you are just looking for sheer performance. All your money has gone into the blade on this one.

This knife lives up to Fallkniven's standards by using the awesome VG-10 steel to keep a wickedly sharp edge which is laminated in stain resistant steel to make it lighter in weight yet stronger. Sharp as a razor and a joy to use.

Beauty

Let's be honest, it will never win any beauty contests. But it was never meant to.

This is an exceptional work horse and not a prancing pony. It is named after a whale and if you squint it sort of looks like one. This knife is all about the function over form so let us consider it an ugly duckling. But what a performer.

This is an Olympic athlete of a knife, no room for fancy garnish here, it's all about doing the job it was built for and excelling at it.

Comfort

The handle on this knife is comfy, light weight and non slip. It appears like horrid black plastic at first but actually has a rubber like feel to it which gives a great grip even when wet. That pared with the shape of the handle and its various curves and cut outs means that it just "fits in the hand" so naturally.

Durability

The totally sealed handle means no germ traps on this knife. The blade is built to keep an edge for a long time which minimises the amount of sharpening required. If misused the blade might chip like any other hardened steel blade but if you use it for its intended purpose it will be flawless. Built to last.

Ease of care

Totally sealed synthetic handle means it is easy to clean and dry. No hidden dirt or germ traps here. The super hard cutting edge means sharpening is a rare event but when you do need to sharpen it you will need suitable sharpening equipment which can handle the harder steel (we recommend a diamond steel for all our knives anyway).

Value for money

Built to last. You are investing in top performing quality and durability. If, however, you are after some knife art to look great on your kitchen wall look elsewhere.
