With this knife a new world standard is being set! Technical design, ergonomics, and economy are brought together within the Fallkniven A1 survival, representing the leading concept available today. The knife meets and exceeds established international standards for strength, personal security and value.

 

Model A1 is a large all-purpose Fallkniven knife for highly demanding work. The powerful blade is manufactured from hard, resilient special steel that can withstand heavy usage. The knife is excellent for chopping with, but also works well for everyday chores, thanks to the ergonomically well designed handle. Since the blade continues through the handle at almost full width, it is possible, in an emergency, to hammer on the end of the knife without damaging the handle. Together with the Zytel sheath, Model A1 is a completely water- resistant and extremely powerful solution.

The Fallkniven A1 survival knife is available in an all-black design, with the blade coated in Teflon. In addition to reducing the risk of unwanted reflections, the Teflon coating gives further protection against corrosion. If the knife is to be used in salt water environments, we recommend the A1 Black.

    Legendary blade

    Posted by Graham on 7th Dec 2019

    If you like long walks on the beach, sherry wine, and crying during rom-com movies this knife is NOT for you. However if your the kind of dude who pulls his own nose hairs, may practice self dentistry and can start a fire with two sticks and some dry weeds this is your blade. This knife is a legend in its own right, and really not something you can a appreciate, until you get it on your hand.....once you do, you are hooked

    Great knife / terrible zytel sheath

    Posted by James on 15th Oct 2019

    This knife really is a great knife. I have used it for a while to date, though I had a index sheath made for it by Red Rhino Customs in the USA. I really couldn't handle the Zytel sheath that comes with it. The blade though is fantastic.

    Typical Fallkniven

    Posted by Doc on 30th Dec 2017

    I bought the black Zytel version from HH over 2 years ago and it does everything faultlessly. The black coating isn't very durable and the rattling sheath has been replaced by leather and then a custom thermal job. I purchased an F1 pro but I cannot see a reason to Pro my A1. Strong, razor sharp, a beast of a chopper for the size. It might seem too military for Bushcraft but it is a true utility blade. I own two CS SRK carbon V which I love and the A1 is just as loved. Awesome tool, service from HH awesome as ever!

    Simply outstanding

    Posted by AndyW on 22nd Jan 2016

    This is my second Fallkniven (I also have the F1) and I have been using this knife for about a year now. I therefore felt it about time that I wrote a quick review on it, based on how it performed on my last trip. Pros: - Great blade shape that is razor sharp out of the box and holds that edge surprisingly well, even with hard use - Stainless steel blade - a major bonus versus 1095 if you use it in wet environments as the laminated steel is far more rust-resistant than high carbon steel - Nice weight that allows you to chop and baton branches but is still light enough in hand for more fiddly activities such as making feather sticks, trap triggers, tent pegs and so on - Comfortable handle that doesn't chew your hand up - Good quality leather sheath that is solid and very well made. The plastic one is perfectly functional though, even if it does rattle a bit when the knife is in it. I have both sheaths and actually prefer the slim lines of the plastic one, it tends to be less cumbersome when you are out and about in the bush. Cons: - VG10 will chip out on you if you are careless when cutting or batonning wood and hit something hard such as a rock. - Sharpening the convex grind can take some getting used to but it is pretty easy when you are used to it (a strop touches it up nicely though) If I had to choose between the A1 and F1, the A1 would win hands down, given what I need from any knife that I use in the bush. This is largely due to the A1's stouter, longer blade and the extra length on the A1's handle. All in all, I reckon that this is one of the best (if not the best) all round survival knives available.

    Perfection

    Posted by Paulhw100 on 29th Nov 2015

    This is my third fallkniven , weight, size, design, everything about it is spot on. Really, I'm more of an axe man, but I could quite happily use this and nothing else. Exceptional.

    Superb knife and excellent service

    Posted by Tom on 7th Jul 2015

    Now I finally see what the fuss is about. This is a superb piece of manufacturing: excellent grind, extremely sharp, well balanced and with a no nonsense sheath. Some may dismiss the Zytel version as inadequate, but compared with a BK2 sheath, for example, this is a clear winner. Excellent service from HH, as usual.

    Do knives get any better than this?!

    Posted by DoomDealer on 7th Jul 2015

    In a word - no. My knowledge of knives is limited, but I can assure you, you don't need to be an expert to realise that Fallkniven knives have got to be among the best knives on the planet. I'm not gonna get into too much detail here (there's more than enough of that on t'internet), but suffice it to say, if you're looking for a no-nonsense, no frills, top-notch quality, reliable and beautifully made outdoor/ survival knife, look no further. Seriously. I bought the A1 and the F1, both with leather sheaths (I had considered the plastic sheaths, but upon unpacking I was immediately glad I went for the leather option). They compliment each other absolutely perfectly. Expensive but worth every penny, and a satisfying, and reassuring investment.

    Tough

    Posted by Wilson on 4th Jul 2015

    I bought this knife a while back because I was told by military personnel Fallkniven was the best knife maker out. This has proven to be true for me . Their blades are mostly triple laminate exotic steels that are very time consuming and expensive to manufacture making them far superior to most knifes on the market. I would recommend any Fallkniven fixed blade . They ( A1 ) stay sharp and have a bending moment of 556 lb. This is not a toy. They are exquisitely over engineered industrial grade tools that would save your life in any situation. They can cut a large hole in the sheet metal of an aircraft fuselage and then it's business as usual. I believe you can buy the sheath you want if you look around and ask Fallkniven themselves. Buy once . 5/5

    Impeccable Blade From Fallkniven & Service From The HH Team

    Posted by Norseman on 5th Jun 2015

    The Blade This is my first Fallkniven and subsequently will certainly not be my last. I had the requirement to source a well made/robust survival knife which is razor sharp right our of the box but, had some reservations as i did not want a jack of all trades and master of none. I spent the best part of a year ensuring i was well informed regarding survival blades, the market and what is on offer out there. I chose well, the A1 is spot on; well made, balanced, versatile, perfect for its intended purpose and with the bonus of being a thing of beauty. Whatever your requirement from bushcraft - survival to tactical you will not be disappointed. I opted for the leather sheath rather than Zytel as i intend to source a Kydex shealth with additions at some point to ensure optimum functionality. I had to wait some time before i could justify the cost of this blade and guess many of you out there are in a similar position, i am really chuffed knowing the initial cost is justified with a blade that will last a lifetime. Fallkniven - my respect goes out to them and their craft. The HH Service Again, i just do not know how the Hennie Haynes Team achieve such a great job by ensuring impeccable delivery without fail to date from my perspective. I have worked within the courier, supply chain, freight & general logistics business for decades and the team at HH really know how to ensure they get the very best possible service out of their service providers of course this is how it should be with all retailers but we all know the HH level of service is a rare achievement these days.
