Fallkniven A1 Army Survival Knife Review

Fallkniven A1 Swedish Survival Knife 6.3" Satin VG10 Blade, Zytel Sheath

Gotta hand it to the Swedes - they sure do know how to make a great survival knife. Fallkniven is a supplier of knives to the king of Sweden, so they're probably doing something right.

Along with the H1 Hunting Knife and F1 Pilot Survival Knife, this A1 is another of their most popular models. The 6.5 inch blade is VG-10 steel, a high-carbon, molybdenum, chromium and vanadium mix that is often used in high-end Japanese kitchen knives. It's well known for its ability to hold a very sharp edge without being overly brittle. The blade is hardened to 59 on the Rockwell C scale, quite high for this type of blade. Out of the box it is very sharp and its simple geometry makes it straightforward to resharpen. It is a full-tang blade, extending beyond the end of the knife even while it is hidden inside the handle. And speaking of the handle, it's made of molded Kraton for an excellent non-slip grip without being overly rough. Note that it features a finger guard, which you may or may not be interested in.

Included is a Zytel Sheath.

Weightier brother of the S1, an uncompromising survival knife able to split wood, cleave brush and chop hard. 6mm thickness of VG10 laminate steel gives you the strength of blade, safe and reliable when you need it most. The design has been created to offer excellent balance and 'hand feel' and the convex ground of the blade gives tremendous bite into wood. Popular in military circles for is strong,safe design it is also offered with the 8H ceracoat black blade. A no-nonsense survival knife, proven in the field.


Kraton. Kraton is a high performance elastomer. It has most of the properties of natural rubber, but is much more durable and resistant to heat,weather and chemical damage. The Fallkniven A1 is available in two models, the A1 and the A1B-Black blade for reduced reflections.
