R2 Scout Fallkniven Elmax Thermorun Knife
The knife is designed for those who have slightly smaller hands, i.e. women, young people, girls or for those who simply prefer a knife that is a little smaller in size – without sacrificing quality. In terms of quality, it thus competes with most knives on the world market (including many of our own models), but considering that more than half of the world’s population consists of women/girls, it is no more than right that this customer category also gets the best in the world technique. It is still not a “girl knife” but simply a knife for those who do not have hands as big as a lid.
The convex ground edge is wood sharp and keeps its sharpness very well. When the edge has lost its sharpness or if you have received a dent in the edge, use a fine, flat diamond whetstone like DC4 to restore the edge to its original appearance. If you think this is difficult, you can send the knife to us for sharpening, but then it costs a “penny”, of course.
A few words about the dimensions of the knife: The reason why we have chosen to have a really strong blade back is to give the knife the strength to withstand stress. The blade tang, i.e. the part of the blade that goes inside the handle, is also wide and strong and is visible at the handle end. The tip of the blade is reinforced in order to prevent it from breaking. In the event of the tip breaking in some way, it is possible to grind out a new tip. Same thing with the edge – if there is an edge damage, it is no problem for us to grind out a new edge. The knife is heavily dimensioned to withstand much strain, so if you use this knife with some thought, it will last a lifetime. It is not only climate-smart, it is also to care about the earth’s limited resources.
