There are survival knives, and there are survival knives for professional survival. Fällkniven models F1, S1 and A1 have provided exceptional service for more than twenty years and due to their outstanding quality and durability will continue to do so for many years to come. Nevertheless Fällkniven' desire to strive for continual improvement has led to the development of the new Fällkniven Pro Series which takes the concept of the survival knife to unimaginable heights of quality.

At first glance a knife is a simple enough thing, a blade and a handle. Not so for the guys at Fällkniven. When re-visiting three of their best selling knives they broke down these seemingly simple products and analysed them with the intention of optimising their designs and highlighting their individual qualities. Whilst they were happy enough with the overall designs, there were reasons to scrutinise the dimensions of the knife handles to see if there were improvements that could be made.

The knife that had to undergo the biggest changes was the S1 which now has a beefier handle whilst the F1 is straighter after they took another look at the front part of the blade (the so called false edge). And in order to highlight the small finger grip the A1 has received a new handle design.

No one will miss that laminate cobalt special steel has been used for these three survival knives. This steel has for years proved to be a really good, problem-free steel that provides and maintains and extremely sharp edge. These Pro Series knives have a thicker blade, whilst this may only be another millimetre, the increase in percentage is substantial and stress tests by the Lulea Technical University have shown that these new blades are significantly stronger than the original F1, S1 and A1 knives.

If you claim to call a knife “professional” you take on a responsibility to the user to raise the bar above what is normal. So it is with the Pro series.

  • The laminated VG10 steel is replaced with laminate cobalt steel (lam. CoS) which, amongst other things, ensures a durable edge and improved edge retention.
  • The blades are consistently thicker causing an increased torsional rigidity - they will withstand even greater external forces than before.
  • The tapered tang is wider and thicker and thus significantly stronger.
  • The cross guard is made of stainless steel and permanently mounted to the tang.
  • The convex edge has been refined to improve the cutting properties.
  • The Zytel sheaths are redesigned meaning they are more durable and are better suited to the Molle attachment system.
  • The knives are supplied with our most valued combination whetstone, the DC4. It offers both a diamond whetstone and a ceramic stone for field sharpening.
  • The knives are packed in shock-resistant, waterproof boxes that can be used for storage of smart phones, GPS, documents, survival gear and much more.
