Fallkniven Model F1 Swedish survival knife


With this knife a World standard is 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.

the Fallkniven 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.

The Fallkniven F1 Survival knife is available in an all-black design, with the blade coated in black CeraCoat 8H. 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 Teflon coating.

    Incredible Knife!

    Posted by Phill McG on 14th May 2021

    The Fallkniven F1 VG10 is a thing of beauty! It has excellent steel which holds an extremely sharp edge even after hard use! Also, the thermorun handle feels good and has an Excellent feel in my medium-size hands! This knife makes an excellent companion with the Fallkniven S1 Pro that I had recently purchase from Heinnie Haynes! All in all, a really excellent built knife for bushcraft and/or survival tasks you can throw at it, highly recommend!

    So long

    Posted by Martin Orchard on 10th Feb 2021

    After who knows how much money and knives had been wasted I finally got hold of the almighty F1. And Omgg! Is all I need to say, As a user well as a collector I've stayed away from fallkniven solely on my own concept of what a outdoor woods knife should be, scandi grind is the only one that works. So I thought. Don't get me wrong I own afew fallk folders but this tool is awesome, get it right now, don't even read anymore just go and buy one

    The perfect knife

    Posted by Graham on 24th Dec 2019

    It is a job to see how this knife could be improved. Light but very strong, razor sharp, the handle is comfortable and effectively indestructible. Overall finish is exceptional and the blade is a thing of true beauty. Feels modern and hi-tech and I guess "Swedish" rather than "woodsman" I would imagine it would stand a lifetime of hard use.

    Excellent

    Posted by Neil on 2nd Nov 2017

    I've had the F1 for a couple of years now. I bought it as a 'bushcraft' knife and at about the same time, a very good carbon steel scandi grind knife with a birch burl handle, and the two make a good comparison. The burl handle fits my hand like a glove, better than the rather thin handle of the F1. Both sharpen up very well and hold their edge. The burl-handled scandi looks much nicer. However, at the end of the day, I tend to choose the F1 when I go out. I can't define exactly why, I just like it more; it just seems to 'work' better. Being stainless I can use it for camp cooking and gutting fish and with the Zytel sheath I never have to worry about it getting wet and staying wet. So it may not be the prettiest knife, but it feels really solid in the hand and as a working tool, I don't think it could be beat.

    As near to a perfect knife as its possible to be

    Posted by Ozalid on 30th Jan 2017

    I have owned and used a lot of knives and I mean a lot and have always said that there is no perfect knife and no one knife for all things and I still maintain this, however, after owning and using the Fallkniven F1 for a while I think I have found the knife that will always be with me, no matter what else I am carrying or using. The ergonomics of the F1 are close to perfect, the blade to handle ratio is just right, the laminated VG10 takes a super-fine edge and keeps it, even after some hard work, the weight and balance could not be improved and as long as you don't try and use the knife for tasks that it was not designed for, you will not be disappointed with this blade. The only thing I have had to improve is the sheath, the leather one is good for storage, but a nice deep Kydex sheath with Tek-Lok makes the F1 the complete package, buy one, buy two, you will never regret it.

    Just don't doubt yourself and buy it.

    Posted by Welshwnder on 29th Jan 2017

    Ok so first things first I was umming and arrrring between this and another knife on this site. Quick email to Richard and a speedy response later my mind was made up. Placed my order at 17:09 and the package arrived at my door 10am the very next day absolutely amazing service, you would think that after all my previous experience shopping with Heinnie I would no longer be amazed but this level of service will never get old. Now onto the F1 itself it's true that it will win no beauty contest but immediately it felt practical in the hand. The blade is convex and came real sharp straight out the box, I stopped the blade a few times for good measure and now it's just scary sharp. I decided to head for the woods and put the knife through some tests. Feather sticks we're made easy, quickly and in abundance. Next some battoning, and again the F1 made light work of the task. I then used the back of the blade on a ferro rod and huge hit sparks were produced with ease. Living in Wales we get a lot of wet weather and all these tests we're carried out in the wet. The handle was a joy, no hot spots it wasn't cold to the touch and the grip kept things nice and safe. After all the tasks the blade remained shaving sharp and with absolutely no micro chips or damage to the blade. This knife feels like it could take some real abuse and last a lifetime I hope so. So if you are thinking of purchasing one but are unsure as I was just do it you won't regret it, and if the guys at Heinnie use it themselves with all the stock they have access to...............well enough said.

    Best all-around knife I own

    Posted by J on 30th Dec 2016

    I've had one of these for ten years, and it looks close to new. Decently sized, comfortable for long use, and takes an edge and keeps it very, very well indeed.
