SWEDF1EK: 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.

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

A Great Knife...
This is a great knife. The comments about the sheath can be solved by getting the beautiful black leather one made for this knife. That is what I did and have been happy...and I have a rather large knife collection. I just wish they made a version with a partially serrated edge as I find this feature to be really useful since I use my knives and EDC for so many different things.

good knife with OK sheath.
this is a really good knife as far as the blade shape. Convex edge is really good . the handle could be slightly thicker with more palm swell to it. the biggest disappointment is the zytel sheath. Not the zytel itself but the nylon backing which is flimsy and the strap that snaps around the handle is too loose. Poor quality control on the sheaths. The knife is made in Japan. Sheaths are made elsewhere where workers screw up measurements. Fallkniven can do better than this.

Ideal for Deer Sized Game
This knife is just about perfect for field dressing deer and other similar size game such as antelope and wild hogs. The handle is a tough polymer material which gives a good grip even when wet. The stainless steel blade is just the right size and very sharp out of the box. The knife is also easy to clean once the job is done. For skinning, I would like to have a little more curve to the blade, but this knife will do. The F1 is a good choice to take along on your next hunt.
