Fallkniven U2 Folding Knife, Laminated SGPS Steel, Zytel Handle, Lockback
The Fallkniven U2 is not your typical badass knife. It doesn't have a thumb stud for quick one-handed opening. It doesn't have a classic liner lock. It doesn't have a bunch of unnecessary bells and whistles like a glass breaker or seat belt cutter.
So what does the U2 have? A design and construction that will out perform nearly any folder you handle.
Despite boasting a classic nail nick and lockback, the Fallkniven U2 is one of the most innovative knives on the market. It is the world's first folding knife with a blade made of laminate powder steel.
The 2.52-inch blade uses Super Gold Powder Steel (SGPS), which has a core of SG-2. This technologically advanced steel boasts an edge retention that's unparalleled by almost any other. Even after putting this knife through the ringer, its blade will shave hair with ease.
And the steel is just the tip of the iceberg.
Its simple drop point blade design is versatile while nail nicks on either side make it easy for use with either hand.
Made from Zytel, the handle is simple yet effective. Subtle curves along the grip conform comfortably to the fingers and palm. Its construction is so tight you won't be able to find the seam. A classic lockback keeps the blade engaged during the toughest of everyday tasks.
This is one of the best EDC knives for those who want a gentleman's folder that's tough and reliable. A lanyard hole offers several carrying options.
The unassuming simplicity of the knife won't be lost on you, but non-knife people around you won't give you a second look. And the knife people? Well, that's a different story.

It is the absolute sharpest knife I have ever purchased.
Nice little folder. Laminated powder gold steel blade is a scary sharp example of one of the newest types of blade steels. Hair popping sharpness is unbelievable. Highly recommended.
This little knife has earned a permanent spot in my pocket. It's light weight, and holds an edge extremely well. It's expensive, but worth it.
It is lightweight with an excellent blade!
This is a light but sturdy knife with a blade that is above average!
