SWEDS1L: S1 Forest Knife, Black, Leather Sheath

S1 The Forest Knife is probably the best hunting and fishing knife ever made. Its sturdy blade made of the new extremely strong stainless laminate VG10 custom steel is convex grounded for extra strong cutting power with no risk for edge breakage. The modified clippoint design works well for penetrating purposes, the long curved edge is ideal for skinning. The blade is long enough for lighter chopping and won´t break, it´s full 5 mm (0.2") thick!

Would you prefer to get no reflection from the blade, we offer a black CeraCoat 8H version.

The checkered handle gives a good grip even when your hands are cold or wet. Depending on your needs, you have the possibility to chose from two kinds of sheaths, an open-top dangler in thick, black leather or a zytel sheath with snappers around the handle.
Like all our models, the S1 Forest Knife is well tested before release, you will find no teething problems. If your looking for total quality, a classic knife from Fallkniven AB, is never wrong. Try the S1 Forest Knife, you won´t be disappointed!

Much more than you pay for.....
I wanted a nice knife to add to my bushcraft/camp knife selection and decided on this. It is great!!!! They really do a great job laminating vg10 steel to the blade for a super strong combination. It's convex edge is a little tricky to sharpen but not impossible. You can baton through wood or cut up deer. This blade will do almost all camp chores with ease. Ergonomics are very good for a bush knife---comfortable in the hand---no hot spots. If you look at the steel first when you consider a knife, this is a great choice. Can't go wrong with this Fallkniven offering!! Almost forgot, high quality leather sheath---beautiful work.

one of the best for its size
Got this for my husband for Christmas. He loves it; he has it in his flight bag. He says its one of the best for its size and very well made. The sheath is acceptable for hunting but for SERE, you would need a MOLLE compatible scabbard system. (So he says.) It took awhile to get to us, but was worth it.
