Fällkniven has applied a fantastic type of steel for the blade. The new laminate cobalt-steel (for the enthusiasts, the composition: C 1.1%. Cr. 16%. W 0.3%. Mo 1.5%. V 0.3%. Co 2.5%.) is extremely hard, while the resistance to chipping is large. And an additional advantage is that it can be sharpened even sharper than, for example, VG10 or 3G steel. The most important disadvantage is the significantly higher cost. The blade opens very smoothly because of the application of bearings lubricated with Teflon.
