The Fällkniven F1 Pro is the improved version of the well-known Fällkniven F1: the pilot knife of the Swedish air force. For years this has been a very popular knife amongst outdoor enthusiasts. The convex edge is very sharp and very strong. Cutting wood and many other tasks will become a piece of cake. The Fällkniven F1 Pro is an all-round fixed knife that can withstand the most extreme circumstances. The thermorun handle offers enough good grip, even with wet hands. The tang of the blade runs all the way to the pommel, for optimal strength.
Although many believe the Fällkniven F1 to be the ultimate large survival knife, Fällkniven felt there was still some room for improvement. That is why the Fällkniven F1 Pro was developed.
Differences Fällkniven Pro-series
The Fällkniven Pro-collection is the long awaited successor to the very popular regular F1, A1 and S1. The VG10 core was replaced by top-quality CoS cobalt steel. This type of steel is even better when it comes to sharpness retention and won't chip as easily. The entire blade is also thicker for an even stronger knife. This is not only the case with the visible (cutting) part of the blade, the tang is also larger and thicker.
The thermorun finger guard was replaced by a steel finger guard, for more firmness and an improved balance. But that is not all, the convex grind of the blade was also improved.
Just like the Zytel sheath. It is now even more sustainable and easier to use with the MOLLE-system.
This is the 10-variant of the Fällkniven F1Pro. This means that this model comes with a 10 year guarantee but that luxury waterproof case with sharpening stone isn't included. The advantage is that this model is a lot more affordable.
