Fallkniven Pro Series A1

Fallkniven Pro Series A1

£468.95

Description

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.

Understandably these knives fall into a higher price category. However, considering the unparalleled quality they are by no means over priced. A professional survival knife should be able to be relied upon in the all-weather and we really mean all weather. It should also be pleasant, safe and comfortable to handle whether it’s fine or rough work, summer heat or winter cold. Fällkniven have considered everything in the design of this quite superb knife and, therefore, offer a 10 year warranty on materials and workmanship.

Really impressed.

I note a frequent complaint that this knife often arrives not quite sharp enough, but mine was excellent. Well-made with a beautiful satin finish, perfect weighting and a handle which seems to cling to your hand. Sturdy and well-made. Arrived in a high quality case.

Is it worth the price? I'm not entirely sure; but if somebody offered me a refund, there is no way I would accept.

If you can justify the cost, then get it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

This knife exudes quality. My knife wasn't sharp out of the box , which was not a problem, you can get it like a razor quite quickly. Spending some time and useage makes you realise what a serious tool this really is , a wonderful piece of design and engineering. A beauty and a beast, this knife holds a sharp edge even after some severe punishment which is evident it is designed to take, no problems. (Posted on )

OK the original A1 is still in production but you get my drift!
What a fantastic job Fallkniven have done with what was already a top survival knife.
Just the addition of the stainless steel finger-guard is justification for choosing the Pro over the original. No more damaging the front of the grip when batoning after a hard days trekking and you're cold and tired and in need of fire and shelter!
Ergonomically this knife is superb with just the right amount of front end heft for the perfect chopping action with a perfectly formed grip to complement.
Surprisingly that finger-guard also makes the A1 Pro more user friendly when doing smaller tasks around the camp site with its more pronounced shape over the original.
If ever I found myself lost in the middle of nowhere and was allowed only one thing, it's the A1 Pro that I'd want, there's no such thing as the perfect survival knife but right now this is as close as it gets ...
Dilemmas dilemmas what to buy next, S1 Pro or the F1 Pro, thank God Fallkniven haven't made the A2 Pro ( please God) ...
And last but not least thanks to all the staff at HH for the fantastic service ...

A:
Hi Doc, I couldn't get any really bad rattling from it when I filmed him in that lovely outfit. No negative feedback about it.

Hi , I purchased an A1 at the end of September , as I am looking for an example of a good quality laminated blade to add to my collection with regret I had to return this knife as it appeared to be poorly ground ( ie off center to core ) This was of course a great dissapointment but I still have a gap to fill. a) how are these blades (A1 Pro) for uniformity of grind across the laminations b) Can the knife be purchased on its own without box,sheath and sharpening stone? I look forward to your reply Many thanks
A:
Hi Richard...sorry your A1 wasn't up to scratch. It's difficult to say whether the grind is uniformly positioned with the Pro series but if you wish to place an order we can try and find one from stock whose grind is level. Unfortunately we are unable to sell a knife on its own.

Hi what does the lifetime warranty cover? Is it just material defects or is it actually guaranteed for life like a leatherman.
