NL5cx Idun, with a blade in Cowry X Damascus steel. This is probably the world’s best edge steel, all categories, and definitely one of the most exclusive blades ever made. The edge comprises a powder steel with the following extreme content: C 3%, Cr 20%, Mo 1%, V 0.3% and iron to 100%. Its hardness is no less than 64 HRC! The sides consist of stainless, 120-layer Damascus steel, and with the edge of powdered steel, we have formed a blade which in its beauty and strength is world class, no less. The knife is an excellent utility to all, but probably most customers will acquire it for its exclusive collectability.

The handle consists of specially selected oxhide: sadly a material that is usually overlooked by manufacturers, but which gives a sure and rugged grip. It ages beautifully and as the years pass it acquires an attractive brown patina, and it is unaffected by oil and solvents and impervious to water. Dryness might cause small cracks on the handle but they disappear when the knife is put to use again.

We are persisting with the convex edge, since we consider this to be the ultimate combination of cutting performance and edge strength, and of course our NL5 Idun knife features this. Anyone who knows anything about knife making knows that such an edge can only be made by hand, and that’s why 99.99% of all knives don’t have that kind of edge. Knives in general are of course mass produced, where CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) robots and grinders shape the blades as best they can. The machines are loaded with stacks of blades so that production can go on 24 hours a day and the result is quite often really good – good knives at affordable quotes. However, if you want top-drawer strength, corrosion-resistance, edge durability and design, the machine hasn’t been made that can come even close to the craftsmanship of a trained, skilled knifesmith. Therefore, we take great pride in being able to present our Northern Light Series, well aware that only the most quality-conscious will appreciate its assets.

The sheath is made of black high quality leather.
