Description
SWEDA1K: A1 Swedish Survival Knife
Fallkniven

With this knife a new world standard is being set! Technical design, ergonomics, and economy are brought together within the model A1, representing the leading concept available today. The knife meets and exceeds established international standards for strength, personal security and value.

Model A1 is a semi-large all-purpose knife for heavy duty use. The powerful blade is made of extremely hard yet tough laminated VG10 steel and will withstand the stress of hard use. The knife is superb to chop with, but also works very well with daily tasks, thanks to the ergonomic grip. The full tang goes entirely through the handle, so you can strike the end of it without breaking the grip. The sturdy black zytel sheath allows you to fasten the knife on your belt or your pack - even upside down. Model A1 is a water repelling concept which works just as well in extreme cold as in stifling heat.

Zytel sheath
The new injection molded zytel sheath offers a neat safe and strong combination of qualities which should be very attractive to any user.

About the best knife you could ever want
While a bit large for a general survival knife (something the F1 fits a little bit better), I have trouble holding that against the A1. The weight, sharpness, and quality are simply top-notch. I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said a million times before. Basically, if you are looking for a larger survival knife, this is the one you want.

buy it
I bought this knife as a all purpose knife yard work in the woods self defense it works in all roles. the weight is good for chopping and excels on that its just heavy enough to work but not too heavy to not use. the blade quality is outstanding and the grip is pretty nice. the sheath is ok it does its job. the edge I got on mine was pretty dang sharp, sharp enough to shave but not sharp enough to slice paper but that's not a big deal to me it does what I need it to. anyways I highly recommend this knife to military service men or just the average Joe who is going camping and anything in between.
