Fallkniven Taiga Forester 1 - Desert Ironwood (4.75" Lam. CoS) Zytel Sheath TF1Z
Fallkniven Taiga Forester 1 is a handmade knife with a handle in the very exclusive desert ironwood. Desert ironwood, which grows in the southwestern United States, has a somewhat peculiar quality – it is heavier than water, its density is 1.2 kg/dm³ which means it will sink. The fact that the blade goes full width through the handle, full tang blade, results in a very strong and reliable construction and gives a comfortable weight to the knife.
The sheaths is a bit special about these knives is the very secure plastic sheath where a specially designed locking system ensures that the knife is properly locked when it is placed in the sheath. It works regardless of weather and wind, sand or snow.
**There can be some variation in pattern and shades on the wooden handles.
