In Norse mythology, Idun was the goddess of fertility, and responsible for guarding the apples that ensured the gods eternal youth. To many, she was also a symbol of love and rebirth, and in a poem she was referred to as the lover of the gods (sa leika). It is our pleasure to present to one of the world’s most advanced hunting knives Mod. NL5cx Idun, with a blade in Cowry X Damascus steel. This is probably the world’s best edge steel, all categories, and definitely one of the most exclusive blades ever made. The edge comprises a powder steel with the following extreme content: C 3%, Cr 20%, Mo 1%, V 0.3% and iron to 100%. Its hardness is no less than 64 HRC! The sides consist of stainless, 120-layer Damascus steel, and with the edge of powdered steel, we have formed a blade which in its beauty and strength is world class, no less. The fittings are of solid nickel silver, while the rest of the handle is in stacked leather and fiber washers. The knife is manufactured in strictly limited numbers, but we hope it will be available for at least a few more years. The knife is an excellent utility to all, but in all probability in most customers will acquire it for its exclusive collectability. Whichever, demand will probably outstrip supply.
