THE SWEDISH AIR FORCE’S ULTIMATE SURVIVAL TOOL
When considering survival gear, it’s hard to go past the Fallkniven F1, the Swedish Air Force’s tool of choice since 1995.
What makes Sweden unique is that it is positioned on top of the Arctic Circle. Any pilot who finds them self in a survival situation may have to rely on a special tool.
Given such a scenario, this survival tool should be sturdy, reliable and designed to be practical. It should have tough blade steel which can be easily sharpened.
The Fallkniven F1 is the result of over 10 years spent researching the design with a view to it being suitable for the climatic conditions of the subarctic. The Fallkniven F1 set a new world standard for a survival tool with its superior technical design, ergonomics and affordability. Surpassing international standards for strength as well as personal security capabilities, this is a tool which offers excellent value for money.
HIGH PERFORMANCE OUTDOORS
The convex grind on the Fallkniven F1 blade offers superior edge retention and is perfectly suited for varying tasks, such as fine work like cutting feather sticks for fire preparation to hard work such as chopping branches. The versatility of this tool to carry out fine tasks sets it far apart from other tools in the same class. Moreover, the Fallkniven F1 blade can be manoeuvered using different grips for achieving the type of cutting task required.
Survival tools are put through long stints of use and the Fallkniven F1 blade's edge is highly resistant to chipping or rolling even if it’s used intensely. Importantly, it takes minimal effort to sharpen the blade to a razor sharp edge.
