The mighty Thor oozes of quality and robustness bout in feel and looks. The impressive almost 26 cm long and 7 mm thick blade is massive but the nice balance makes the knife feel slick in my hand. The laminated VG10 steel never back down and the blade geometry delivers a tough tip and edge, all great features in a bad ass chopper. Back in the days when I bought the knife the NL1 was delivered with a light colored leather sheath. Today the knife comes with a updated black leather sheath. On my knife a sharp edge inside the lanyard hole had a tendency to cut the lanyard. But this was easy fixed with a thin steel file.
I'm really pleased with my NL1 and I hope my mighty Thor will continue by my side throughout my life.
