The 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.
The F1 has been the official survival knife for pilots within the Swedish Air Force since 1995.
The 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 leather pouch type, which safely houses the entire knife or an extremely tough double-safety, one hand operated zytel sheath.
The F1 Black – there are moments when you wish to avoid light reflection from your blade – then the black CeraCoat 8H F1 is the option for you. This extremely tough coating will also help protect the blade from corrosion.
