Description
SWEDF1BL: F1 Pilot Survival Knife
Fallkniven

With this knife a new world standard is being set! Important factors such as technical design, ergonomy and economy are brought together within the model F1, and represent the foremost concept available today. The knife meets and surpasses by far established international standards for strength, personal security and value for money.

Mod. F1 is the official survival knife for pilots within the Swedish Air Force since 1995.

Mod. F1 represents an entirely new philosophy with respect to knives for survival use. At the same time it combines the experience of generations of knife manufacturing with modern technology. The handy size, the well thought-out design, the incredibly tough laminated steel are only a few of many details making this knife something you can rely on.

Mod. F1 is a handy knife and is tremendously versatile. The safe, pleasant grip together with a very hard yet tough laminated steel, makes the knife very useful for all kind of daily work but also demanding tasks. You can choose from two kinds of sheaths - an all-covering pouch type, which safely houses the entire knife or an extremely tough double-safety, one hand operated zytel sheath.

F1 Black
There are moments when you wish to avoid reflects from your blade and then the black CeraCoat 8H F1 is the option for you. This extremely tough surface will also protect the blade from any corrosion agent.

A beautiful knife
I'm far from an expert on knives, but even I can feel the solid heft of the Fallkniven F1 in my hand. I'm the furthest thing from an outdoors man. My idea of roughing it is ordering room service at The Four Seasons. Nevertheless, a dependable knife is an essential tool for the weary traveler. After all, it's better to have a knife and not need one, than to need a knife and have one. M. S. BTW: the people at Fallkniven recommended the Knifecenter Company and they were right. Knifecenter has the best selection, as well as being an exceptionally professional organization. Many thanks.

F1
F1 Laminated VG-10 Pilot Survival Knife... It's all good, does exactly what it's supposed to.. Only minor annoyances of mine is the tiny finger guard, and the laminated steel. I'm not much of a fan of laminated blades, but on the other hand i like Vg-10. The handle feels like very hard Kraton. Oh, and i love the convex edge.
