Fallkniven Professional Hunter’s Knife PHK
This knife is really, really sharp. It actually put us in the mind of the San Mai series from Cold Steel, particularly given the laminated steel and Kraton grip handle over full tang construction. The main difference between the two is that the blade shape of the PHK is a better fit for hunting/skinning.
Here is the Fallkniven information:
The Professional Hunter’s Knife (PHK) is one of the best hunting knives in the world, where function, safety and hygiene are top priorities. The special blade design (upsweep-droppoint) offers a pretty long skinning edge yet without bother of a wide or clumsy blade.
The 3G stainless laminate powder steel (VG2-SGPS-VG2) offers a blade which is very strong and keeps an edge extremely well. The combination of a Thermorun handle and a stainless crossguard is both safe and comfortable. An injection-molded zytel sheath keeps the knife with double safety and is yet easy to keep clean. Is there a better hunting knife around? We don’t think so.
The injection molded zytel sheath offers a neat safe and strong combination of qualities which should be very attractive to any user.
