Where is this made? Despite the heritage and name, many Fallkniven knives are made in Japan... particularly those that are layered steels. I think most if not all of their knives are now made by subcontractors

I believe you are correct, knife is made in Japan. Price seems to be the lowest I have seen. May jump in.
I have had this knife for a little while now. I have many knives including an f1, s1 and wm1. I have been very happy with all of my fallknivens. Like the others the build quality of this knife is excellent. Most people buy a certain knife to fit a certain role. Hunting, bushcraft, cooking, edc, etc. I see this knife primarily as an edc or a hiking knife given its size. The leather sheath is a dangler style so works well with a backpack. The size and weight for me is about right for backpacking. Small enough for ease of carry but large enough to be pressed into hard service. If you want a knife for bushcrafting or more extended use I think I might look at the f1 or s1.
I've never heard of this steel. Can anyone comment on it? I'm used to the super steels of folder pocket knives -- for example, S35VN, S110V, ZDP-189, and M390/CTS-204P/20CV, M4, and Maxamet.

It is a stainless cobalt special steel that is sandwiched between two softer layer of stainless steel, and the only advantage it gives to the knife is that is won't snap into pieces if a large amount of force is applied to the blade. Because of the high Rockwell hardness, the steel has a tendency to chip if abused, thus the two softer layers will minimize the chance of larger chips occurring, though not increasing toughness in any way.

the CoS (the core steel)is as far as i know an uppgrade version of vg10 i prefer it too s35vn in edge retention but other than that i havent tried any on your list
I just purchased an F1. I have to pass.
The unit I ordered just arrived. Scary sharp, wonderful balance, VERY nice leather sheath, beautiful blade. My daughter absolutely loves the Kolt! This drop needs to happen again so I can get one for me.

@Neji It's dropping again
I've owned one of these for a few weeks now and I have to say it's great blade for everyday use. I have large hands and it's comfortably within a 4 finger grip. It's also the sharpest factory edge I've ever received. Plus the convex edge is easily maintained at scary sharp level by simple stropping. Not that it'll need much as the edge retention is excellent. It's surprisingly comfortable in the pocket with the zytel sheath, although I prefer the leather sheath as its small enough to be barely noticed yet extremely functional
It would be much appreciated if any owners of the Kolt knife would chime in with a review or comments on this knife as I can find very little about it online. I'm interested in this drop but the handle with it's extreme tapered tip and being only 4 inches long has me concerned about it's ergonomics.

I checked out the wealljuggleknives review. From the video, the Kolt seems like it will be a 3+ finger long handle for men’s medium/large hands. The steel is unquestionably excellent. I’m considering the Kolt as a “smaller task” F1 Pro. The Kolt should complement the S1 that I purchased on a drop here a few weeks ago. Then again, the F1 is the F1... 🧐Decisions, decisions!
Neji
Yeah if it's a 3 fingered knife or has that empty pinky feeling at the rear I wouldn't be too interested, I've had handles like that, but as the Kolt's has a bit of conturing I was hoping it's been done just right to fill out the grip, then I'll be on board. So, still calling out to all you owners of a Kolt out there for some feedback......hello.....anyone?......
This drop includes the leather belt sheath, and the Zytel "sheath" which is more of an edge cover. @Papeh @Secondmouse @Neji

With tha news, I am in!
Is this with the leather sheet?
hey massdrop! leather sheath included - yes or no?..
Is it just the Zytel sheath or the zytel and leather sheath?
Here is Fallkniven's description:
In its original form the KK or Kolt Knife had a very simple blade cover. However, many fans of the KK knife today were interested in traditionally shaped leather sheath. We are now offering the KK frock knife with well-fitting sheath made of heavy black leather of the best quality. A small zytel edge cover is also included.
Neji
this drop lists this knife as the KKLz. that model description includes the Leather sheath as well as the Zytel blade cover as per your description above. if it does NOT include the leather cover then the model number is simply KK-Z. Massdrop needs to confirm which this is, because the knife without leather sheath is available from vendors for the same price with free shipping...
Secondmouse
Thanks. Hopefully, Massdrop clears this up.
Hmmm... I may opt for the Kolt over the F1 Pro. Question: the drop shows the leather sheath in the last picture. Is there an option fo the leather sheath? Please tell me "yes".
Good knife at a good price. You can come close occasionally, but this is about as good as you might find anyway.
I have a bushcraft knife with the drop handle like this and I find it really limiting. You just can't get the leverage you need for some tasks and it's harder to apply direct pressure onto the point of the blade (for making a notch in wood for instance). Just fyi.
dingie
I agree with your handle shape comments, but then, the Kolt isn’t intended for that kind of use. It’s a utility knife intended for pocket carry (despite its size). The shape is intended to slip in and out of a pocket easily. Think coat/jacket pocket ... not pants.
billc
That makes sense then. The one I bought, which is otherwise a great knife, was framed as a bushcraft knife. It's a bit too big for an EDC (unless you're in an industry where carrying a solid fixed-blade knife is normal).
