The Fallkniven F1 represents a philosophy with respect to knives for survival use. The F1 successfully combines the experience of generations of knife manufacturing with the most modern technology and forging. The well-thought-out design and incredibly tough laminated steel are only two of the many details making the handy-sized Fallkniven F1 a knife you can always you can rely on even with your life. The F1 is well proportioned and tremendously versatile. The safe, comfortable grip along with its hard and tough laminated steel blade makes the F1 knife incredibly useful for all types of daily work and demanding tasks. If your needs require that no reflections come from your knife blade, we offer a black CeraKote option. The CeraKote is an extremely tough surface coating will also protect the blade from corrosion. CeraKote is a hard coating made of Teflon and ceramics that we apply for military users and others who want to avoid shiny blades. Be aware, however, that although CeraKote is an industry standard, it is also just a finish applied to the metal blade like painting a car. Please note that physical abrasions could scratch through the CeraKote coating. Over time, the black CeraKote may separate from the blade, but more durable coatings make the knife difficult to sharpen and cost up to 100 times more than CeraKote.
