The Valhalla Designed By Faisal Yamin
The Valhalla is as majestic as its name. Designed by prominent knife maker Faisal Yamin, the Valhalla is a robust tactical folder. The handle is stonewashed titanium with chamfered edges and some beautiful vertical grooves. The hollowed handle variation features a milled frame with cut outs on the presentation side. A rock solid framelock mechanism with stainless lockbar insert ensures secure lock up and durability. The action is silky smooth on the Valhalla. Opening is rapid and snappy with a drop-shot closing action.
The Persian style blade with plenty of belly for cutting and slicing is simple, practical and good looking too. A small blade fuller is added to the blade flats for aesthetics and the top swedge gives the blade even more dramatic appearance.
The blade is made of Damasteel, RWL34 is a super steel developed by Damasteel. It is the Powder metallurgy version of the Japanese ATS34 steel. RWL34 was named in honour of Bob Loveless or RW Loveless by Damasteel. RWL34™ is particular successful product with very high strength and toughness combined with extreme edge sharpness that is easy to maintain.
