Product DescriptionFallkniven F1 Pilot Survival Knife, 3G, Zytel Sheath
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.
Many years ago, when Fallkniven began the development of the now famous knife series Tre Kronor, they wanted to test something new: A completely unknown laminate powder steel. The tests went well, but they also wanted to test the steel on the open market in order, so to speak, to be on the safe side. So, they manufactured 110 F1-knives using this 3G steel, knives which were then sold all over the world. The reactions were, to say the least, positive. And so they could start manufacturing their most exclusive knife series.Specifications
