The Fällkniven F1 is a high-quality survival knife, specifically designed for pilots of the Swedish Air Force. It took 8 years to develop this model. The result of a lot of testing and design work is an advanced, well-thought-out and safe knife that combines strength with a modern design. The Fällkniven F1 is versatile for hunting, camping and trekking or survival trips.
In terms of steel, a core of VG10 steel has been chosen, which is laminated between two layers of softer steel. As a result, the F1 retains its sharpness well, while it is also a lot tougher than with a mono-steel construction.
The edge of the Fällkniven F1 has a convex grind. This means that the blade runs in a spherical shape towards the edge. This results in a very strong and sharp cut. In order to keep up with this cut, we recommend stropping this knife in good time.
Fällkniven chose Thermorun for the handle. This is a rubber-like plastic that offers a pleasant grip. You can tell from the handle construction that Fällkniven takes the arctic climate in its homeland Sweden into account with this knife. The tang of the knife, the steel part that is in the handle, is wrapped all around with Thermorun. This way the knife does not freeze on your hands during very low temperatures. This also works well in the heat so as not to burn your hands when the knife has been in the sun. So very well thought out.
