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.
Many years ago, when we began the development of our now famous knife series Tre Kronor, we wanted to test something new: A completely unknown laminate powder steel. Our own tests went well, but we also wanted to test the steel on the open market in order, so to speak, to be on the safe side. So, we manufactured 110 F1-knives using this 3G steel, knives which were then sold all over the world. The reactions were, to say the least, positive. And so we could start manufacturing our most exclusive knife series.
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 kinds 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.
