Fallkniven U2

U2 - a world first! This is the world's first folding knife with a blade of laminate powder steel, the market innovation Super Gold Powder Steel, SGPS. Powder steel is extremely costly and difficult to work with, and requires advanced technology in combination with experienced knifemakers. The advantage of this steel lies in its outstanding edge retention: there is simply nothing to compare today. The slim handle consists of strong composite material, which makes the knife light and pleasant to carry. With blade grooves on either side, the knife is completely symmetrical and is as easy to use for right-handers and left-handers. The traditional lockback function offers no unpleasant surprises, but locks the blade in its open position with a distinct reliable click.

    Fallkniven U2 folder with laminated powder steel blade.

    Posted by Nick Herbert on 12th Jan 2022

    One star deducted because the Mars’s age to check for Razor sharpness obviously didn’t get through. It has to be said that most of my Mora knives are much sharper “Out-of-the-box” than this one - which, for the higher cost, SHOULD BE..! On the plus side, this could be the perfect pocket knife. It is lightweight, semi-legal to carry in most countries (not airports), has a strong, safe back- lock and disappears in most pockets - especially in the small leather pouch that I paid extra for. When locked open, there is some misalignment between blade and back lock bar, but though this is yet another example of slipping standards at Fallkniven, it does not affect the function. In short, perfect proportions - shame about the sharpness (or lack of).

    Fallkniven U2

    Posted by chris on 27th Oct 2020

    I'm afraid I fall in with those who say don't believe the hype around this knife. I knew it was a very small, basic knife, and was prepared for that. I was ok, too, with the very minimal packaging. But, to me, this knife felt cheap, and the action was rough and uneven. Worst of all the open blade and back lock bar didn't line up. As for the blade's legendary qualities, I wasn't prepared to keep this knife to find out. It didn't feel any sharper from the box than my other knives, and perhaps it does live up to the hype. For that reason I give it three stars. Much more positively I want to give the staff at HH top marks in promptly arranging an exchange without any questions. They certainly deserve all the hype. Online retail at its very best. And I'm over the moon with the Enzo Birk that I bought in exchange.

    Definitely worth the wait...!

    Posted by Heinz on 2nd Mar 2017

    Finally received my Fallkniven U2 after waiting so long for the next batch to arrive in stock, and was it worth the wait... YES, absolutely 100% worth every second...!!! Having a Fallkniven F1 Black, I know what quality and perfection is, but upon opening this tiny little box to discover shear perfection at its best, just took my breath away...! The only thing that could had ever topped this fantastic little knife, would have been a black leather sheath in the box too, but hey you can't have everything? The astounding build quality clearly deserves 11 out of 10, and with a blade sharpness that even puts my razor to shame. My only disappointment is me not buying one much, much earlier, so very highly recommended...!

    Excellent

    Posted by Jools on 7th Mar 2012

    For the money it's an excellent little knife that is easy to carry but with a very good blade. I've got large hands and it is not too small for me to use, The blade has a little play, but it doesn't rattle or cause any problems so I'll leave it alone. I've taken the sharp corners off the back of the blade to save my pockets. All in all am very pleased with my purchase and with Heinnie Haynes super efficient service.

    Just a tad overhyped

    Posted by StefZ on 14th Oct 2010

    Like a previous commentator, the blade on my U2 has some side to side play which I shouldn't expect from a knife in this price bracket. It certainly takes a fine edge but one that, in my experience, doesn't last longer than any other decent stainless steel

    Small but perfectly formed

    Posted by Cal on 27th Oct 2009

    I bought 2 of these for use by my wife and myself in our horse yard. They are strong and sharp, but smaller than I was expecting. I have big hands so they really were too small for me,but the wife loved them.

    The best there is

    Posted by George on 15th Oct 2009

    Hunted around for ages to find the best knife for my pocket. There is no better. Going on the basis that you get what you pay for this is still cheap. My edge is still as sharp as when I bought it after heavy use. No hype.
