The Fallkniven Gentleman’s Pocket Knife appears to be a traditional, slightly old-fashioned pocket knife but if you look at it closely you will find nothing but modern materials and hi-tech solutions.
We had some professional hunters to look at a handmade sample of the GP, and their spontaneous review was: This is how a folding knife for hunting purposes should look like! Aside from personal preferences, we guess that many will like the steel of this knife, our newly developed laminated cobalt steel is unlikely sharp. Other benefits include the reliable blade lock. A properly built liner-lock system is, in our opinion, the world’s strongest blade lock while still being easy to deal with. This technical solution also means that the knife is easy to clean. Rinse it under running warm water and let it dry for achieving best hygiene and function.
As the strong blade bolt is threaded, you can adjust the blade inertia to suit your personal taste. The blade joint does not require lubrication. Oil and grease rather attract dust and dirt and this will increase rather than reduce wear. The shackle at the end of the handle allows you tie the knife – you wouldn’t like to lose this beauty!
The first version of the GP is made in stainless steel and dark cocobolo, but other versions may also emerge in the future.
There is something really beautiful about having real stag for handle material. These days it is very hard to obtain a good supply of very attractive looking quality pieces, which can be legitimately purchased for manufacturing. The staghorn used on our knives is sourced legally. Staghorn is a natural material that is constantly moving, it shrinks or swells depending upon the humidity. After a period of time when horn ages it will shrink slightly, which is normal and cannot be controlled. This means that small stress cracks will appear around bolts and rivets. Please accept that is not covered by any warranty. If you are aware of the characteristics of horn you can look forward to a really nice example on these knives. These are AAA quality in terms of patterns and are matched for visual appeal. Because of the nature of the handle material no bale has been fitted to this model.
