More than half the world’s population is female – and yet Model WM is probably the first sheath knife designed from scratch to suit the hands and requirements of women. The non-aggressive blade design, the safe well-tailored handle, the robust leather sheath – everything breathes functionality. The clean lines are not an objective in themselves; it is rather the function that has governed the design of what has become a complete sheath-knife for everyday usage.
The convex-ground blade provides a blade profile that is extremely strong, while giving a sharp edge suitable for whittling with. The comfortable, ergonomically designed handle gives a good secure grip even in wet or cold hands and enables full control of the edge positioning. The knife is also hygienic, as it is easy to clean.
The powerful blade runs through the handle at full width, and as we use the world’s strongest special steel, we are confident that this knife is practically indestructible. If you want considerably improved edge retention, this handy knife also comes with a blade in laminate powder steel, called WM1/3G.
The rust-resistant VG10 super steel is put through an extensive and very advanced tempering process, partly to achieve high strength, partly for added edge retention, qualities that make our knives much sought-after.
