Product DescriptionFallkniven S1 PRO10, 5.12" Lam.CoS Satin Blade, Thermorun Handles, Zytel Sheath
Fallkniven began developing the Pro Series knives back in 2010 and finally five years later, they could offer three amazing Pro Series survival knives that are the new world standard for survival knife performance and manufacturing.
Simply put, a knife is a blade and a handle. To remain strong and stay sharp the knife must be made of high quality materials. But if the claim is made that a knife is “professional” then the knife and its builder has a responsibility to the user to raise the bar far above what is common. The Pro Series truly is professional.
Compared to their predecessors, the Pro series of F1, S1 and A1 differs in the following important areas:
The original laminated VG10 steel is upgraded to a laminate cobalt steel (lam. CoS) blade that ensures a durable edge and improved edge retention.
The blades are thicker increasing the torsional rigidity so the knives will withstand even greater external forces.
The full-length tapered tang is wider and thicker and therefore significantly stronger.
The crossguard is now made of stainless steel and permanently welded to the tang.
The convex blade edge has been refined to improve its cutting properties.
The zytel sheaths are redesigned, more durable, and better suited for the Molle attachment system.
This edition of the S1pro is sold without the waterproof box and DC4 sharpener, and with only a 10 year warranty instead of lifetime warranty. The option includes only the knife and the Zytel sheath.
Understandably these knives fall into a higher price category. However, considering the unparalleled quality they are by no means over priced.
A professional survival knife must perform in all weather with no exceptions. The professional survival knife must be comfortable and safe to handle for both fine and rough work in summer heat and winter cold. We at Fallkniven have considered every design aspect of these superb professional survival knifes and we stand behind them with a lifetime warranty on materials and workmanship.
