This week, the new Fällkniven R2 Scout in Elmax steel arrived here at the Awaken HQ and I am really excited about it! The R2 Scout is short but very stout with a blade length of 3.14″ inches, an overall length of 7.125″ and nearly a 1/4″ inch thick!
Here are my limited first impressions (more to come as I gain field-time with it):
- The knife fits small to medium-sized hands very well (think of this as a compact bushcraft/survival knife). It reminds me of a compact-sized Fällkniven F1.
- The blade grind is perfect, very symmetrical, and razor-sharp.
- The Zytel Sheath with secondary lock is solid. Having to release the lock before unsheathing will take some getting used to though.
- I haven’t had much experience with the R2 Scout just yet, besides making some simple feather sticks + kindling. So I will update this article later on with proper field experience.
