Swedish products have rather dominated the knife niche largely. Being a knife collector, you can understand my continued fascination with a Swedish brand- Fallkniven. Yet, this is not your run of the mill brand from the region; it is the best of what the country has to offer in terms of quality and consistency. I have until date collected Swiss, American, and German brands of knives and have been duly impressed with the proposed quality. Swedish based Fallkniven has also left a mark with their product line – Fallkniven A1 Survival Knife. It is a survival knife and lives up to its proposed functionality. Here is a concise review of this product and also why I think it is one of the few good ones in the niche to have in your collection.
Why buy Fallkniven A1
The company is a Swedish based institution it has been producing knifes and knife related gears as their consistent product lines since 1984. The company started importing knives and their own production started within 1987. It has been one of the most celebrated brands in the military and outdoor knives criteria. They have been one of the premier suppliers of knife and gear to the Swedish military for decades. They have also been one of the chief survival gear products for the Pilots enlisting in Swedish Air force since 1995. You automatically start expecting a certain level of standard from the brand and the product – Fallkniven A1 Survival Knife- does not fall short of these expectations.
Level of Performance
The design of the knife is unique and especially elegant. It is an 11 1/8 inches overall long knife with an impeccable VG-10 stainless steel blade. The blade has been modified to a spear point and has a satin finish. It is hands down one of the most beautiful looking tools. The product also has a trademark textured handle – black checkered kraton. The handle has a visible tang to it and has a lanyard hole as part of the futuristic design of the overall product. The ergonomic grip of the knife makes it a super versatile tool; however, it is especially good for chopping. The full tang has been designed to go right through the product so you do not have to break grip to strike until the end.
