    Wow. Just. Wow. I’ve had this knife for a couple of days and it is an absolute corker. The model has been around for years, and I already owned the PXL-WH, their ‘budget’ version, still pricy, and it has become my favoured knife when mountaineering or rock climbing. I hankered after the original version, and so I got one: from my perspective it is a very expensive knife - >$400 over here.

    I strongly suspect it has sat in the retailer’s stock for several years, and I had to oil the pivot when dialling it in. The action is sublime, now. No play, just perfect. It is a heavy folder, to be sure, but smooth as soft butter.

    Sharp as the proverbial razor, laminated 3G steel. Gorgeous blade design. However, the grind is uneven where the swedge begins in both my PXL models, and the laminate reaches down differently on either side! Not a problem for me, but the issue is pretty much identical in both folders - the same worker? ;)

    The rest of the fit and finish is fantastic, it is a wonderful knife to be sure. Big thumbs up from me.

    Will give it some use and update this review.

    A PXL was on my short list a while back but I never pulled the trigger because of price.
    Glad you are pleased. Fallknivens are beautiful.

    Man, it’s a beautiful thing. The machining is fab. Very, very pricy, I know, but happily it shows!
