The GPdi is made of Lam. CoS steel and with a handle of desert ironwood. Desert ironwood is a very durable, heavy and hard wood that, due to its high density, can be a little difficult to process and it also sinks in water.
The Fallkniven Gentleman’s Pocket Knife appears to be a traditional, slightly old-fashioned pocket knife but if you look at it closely you will find nothing but modern materials and hi-tech solutions.
We had some professional hunters to look at a handmade sample of the GP, and their spontaneous review was: This is how a folding knife for hunting purposes should look like! Aside from personal preferences, we guess that many will like the steel of this knife, our newly developed laminated cobalt steel is unlikely sharp. Other benefits include the reliable blade lock. A properly built liner-lock system is, in our opinion, the world’s strongest blade lock while still being easy to deal with. This technical solution also means that the knife is easy to clean. Rinse it under running warm water and let it dry for achieving best hygiene and function.
As the strong blade bolt is threaded, you can adjust the blade inertia to suit your personal taste. The blade joint does not require lubrication. Oil and grease rather attract dust and dirt and this will increase rather than reduce wear. The shackle at the end of the handle allows you tie the knife – you wouldn’t like to lose this beauty!
This version of the GP features desert ironwood handle scales. As a natural material, each one is unique.
