Fallkniven S1 Forest

Model S1 has a straight design which gives good control. The blade is designed so that it functions in all kinds of hunting and fishing situations. The edge is specially ground to make the knife easy to whittle with, while it is extremely strong. The handle gives a sure and reliable grip, even in wet or cold hands. The steel is a rust resistant special steel (VG- 10), which goes through a comprehensive hardening process. The length of the blade makes it good for splitting wood, although the weight limits its use to light chopping duty.



The Fallkniven forest 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 S1 Black.



The sheath is manufactured in black ox hide and is of the open, hinged type - most favoured by hunters and anglers in northern Scandinavia. The sheath is deep enough to hold the knife in place without extra fasteners. The sheath has a plastic liner to prevent the knife from cutting through the end. There is a Zytel sheath for those requiring a completely weatherproof solution

    More than suitable for the woodsman/bushcrafter/survivalist.

    Posted by Paul on 10th Dec 2016

    Fallkniven have a long and successful history of making some of the finest blades on the market. Clearly a great deal of thought goes into their designs and choice of materials. While the plain white box packaging may seem unassuming and the unboxing is somewhat anti-climactic, the knife and leather sheath I bought are a joy to look at, hold, and most importantly work with and use in the field. The convex grind of the blade powers through wood when battening, and the laminated steel components hold an edge keen enough to feather and carve with ease. Although due to the convex grind it requires a totally different angle of approach, which is something you will have to get used to if all you have used are Scandinavian grind knives. I used this knife for a number of summer wild camps this year, and am still getting to grips with maintaining its edge. (See DC4 review to be posted) I am coming to the conclusion stropping regularly should be enough to maintain it's razor sharp edge, and the DC4 or other sharpening stones should only be necessary if the edge suffers more serious damage, which would only really occur through misuse such as trying to attempt tasks the knife is not designed for. On design, it is a thick piece of steel with which provides that extra weight to batton with ease, the drop point is perfect to maintain control when starting cuts into fish, squirrel, and rabbit for gutting, and skinning. The exposed pommel is also very useful for striking when carving with a mallet. The edge is razor sharp out of the box, and the fact that it is stainless steel and washes up easily for cooking and eating with is an added bonus. Although the handle is a bit square for my liking it is clear this is also by design. I understand they have addressed this issue along with the gradient of the moulded guard in the Pro version of the S1. Unfortunately that vesion was a little too rich for my budget. (This is the most expensive item In my bushcraft kit!) However it is my opinion it is not necessary to carry only one knife for bushcrafting in the U.K. If you want to carve wood out in the field there is no reason why you can't pack a smaller carving knife in your kit along with a curved spoon knife, and a spoke shave, a small axe, and an adz etc! It all depends what your goals are for the trip. Overall I do recommend this knife. I would give it 4.5 stars if I could with the .5 loss only because of the handle. I wish I had known at the time you can buy the blade as a blank and fit your own handle. Saying that I am very happy with my Fallkniven S1 with leather sheath, and highly recommend it to any serious woodsman/bushcrafter/survivalist such is its versatility, and that is not something you could say about most knifes on the market at a similar price.

    S1

    Posted by Dave .C on 20th May 2016

    This knife now makes two purchases from Hiennie and both times have been made an absolute delight by the shear efficiency and professional attitude of all the staff. The F1 is my most expensive knife by a country mile and buying it as been an hard decision. Do I need to spend all that money on a knife, I have moras and a few £50 pound knifes which for my use have been fine but I knew that in the event of an emergency situation only my mora came close to fitting the bill. Well yesterday my knife came so obviously my review is based on first impressions out of the box I but there are already countless reviews out there on both utube and various blogs that put the knife through its paces regarding shelter making and fire making. My use for it will mostly be hunting of which I have over 40 years experience. After inspecting and handling the F1 I have to say it's an extremely well made and well thought out design. I can't really add anything else that's not already been said. So I will close by saying I'm one happy chappy

    The Perfect Knife?

    Posted by Lee on 10th May 2016

    As you can see there are dozens of great reviews for this knife and with good reason. I am lucky enough to own a fair few decent knives from all sorts of manufacturers and I would say this one seems to fit the bill for real world normal use. The blade shape is great, the steel is brilliant and the grip is comfortable and easy to handle for extended periods. In the UK I see no need for a larger knife for general uses. If you want to go and tidy the garden get the right bit of kit, this isn't for that. I love this knife, I am very happy we found each other. As usual the HH team were great, helpful on the phone and seriously quick with the delivery.

    The only knife you'll EVER need.

    Posted by DoomDealer on 7th Apr 2016

    If I had to disappear into the wild for good tomorrow, and I could take only ONE knife, this is the knife I'd choose. Again and again. I would trust my life to this knife without a second thought. It's all the knife anybody could ever need. It's simply perfect in every way. It's not too big and not too small, which means you can do virtually ANY task - fine carving, chopping, drilling, slicing, prying, splitting, skinning. It's extremely well made. Functional, practical, reliable and pretty (in a no-nonsense sort of way). Get both sheaths. The best 150 quid or so you will have ever spent. You will not find a more perfect all-rounder. Period.

    Awesome laminated steel

    Posted by Rastilho on 10th Mar 2016

    Pros: Laminated Vg10 is a superb steel. Very easy to sharpen and holds an edge for a long time. Since the S1 has a convex steel it can be mantained both at field and at home with a strop only. I only touch mine with a stone once a year or to correct any nicks. Handle and pommel are very sturdy. This knife is usable anywhere in the world!! Cons: If you baton very hard woods it may create micro chips. But this is a technique that you don't need that much and it can be made with an axe very easily. The handle, after very long periods carving wood, can be a bit uncorftable.

    S1 FOREST AND ZYTEL

    Posted by GRANT.E on 13th Feb 2016

    Falkniven make really good knives there is no doubt at all, but i really do think they deserve a lot better sheath. S1 didn't come any where near as sharp as my F1 did but i eventually sorted it. They are really tough classy knives but i do wonder how fellas with big hands cope, I've got medium sized strong hands,and i wouldn't want the handles any thinner or smaller. VERY NICE KNIVES THOUGH..NICE ONE H.H

    Just arrived

    Posted by Andrew on 8th Feb 2016

    S1 Just arrived the knife itself looks and feels really good and the leather sheath is nice too shame I had to pay extra for a plastic left hand one, and all the things I've read about the sheath are true shame they haven't up graded to the S1 pro design. Will be a couple of weeks before I get chance to use the properly.

    If Carlng Made Knives...

    Posted by Andy P on 9th Apr 2015

    ...it would be a Fallkniven S1. I have owned multiple different makes of knives over the years and this one comes out on top. the build quality, crafts manship and sharpness of this piece is outstanding. As of yet I have to try it out in the field but I am sure it will live up to my expectations. I did buy the Wolf Wind S1 sheath for this model, and the sheath is beautifully made but in hindsight not really needed as the leather sheath that is supplied with the knife is thick, well made and very robust. I have yet to decide what to do with the Wolf Wind Sheath. I also own Cold Steel and I can see why there are people who prefer Fallkniven and people who prefer Cold Steel.. From owning thsi model I have now been swayed to the Fallkniven camp and this will now be the knife I reach for when in the great outdoors and EDC.
