Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Well I’ve got my hands on a blade that I haven’t seen on this forum or any really. Seems to be very unpopular, most likely due to low numbers of them around and their astronomical price (usually around $400). I fell in love with Fällkniven when I got my F1. My love affair strengthened with my F1 Pro. Fällkniven is definitely my favorite production blade company. So, I sold off all of my other knives that I do not use as part of my simplify and minimize my knives to only hard users (no collecting). It left me with a void in the hunting knife department. I decided to look at Fällkniven for the solution. In their line up I really liked the look of the HK9 and it is touted as a premier hunting knife in 3G steel, full tank, Micarta handles, etc. I searched and searched and found a deal on one so I picked it up. This is my initial impression of the HK9, next week I’ll post reviews and testing thoughts after I hit the woods a few times in this frigid weather hunting. God willing I’ll get the chance to dress a good animal with it too. Knife comes with a great leather sheath that is very stout and hold the knife with awesome retention: The knife comes polished, which I don’t like particularly because we all know polished stainless scratches if you look at it wrong, but it does look nice: Look at the sleek profile of this little blade, and it is a stocky but small blade in my opinion. The handle geometry is awesome. It has a thicker grip with nice palm swells. I have XL hands and my hand swallows this whole handle, comfortable though. It seems like it will be a good comfortable user, I’ll report next week on how it actually feel in hand with prolonged use: (Look at those perfect lamination lines) I’ll report back with more updates as I get time with this handy blade. Enjoy the pictures, I know I always do.
