The Fallkniven A1 is an all-purpose knife on the larger side designed for heavy duty use. The powerful blade is made of extremely hard and tough laminated VG10 steel, and will withstand the stress of hard use. The knife is superb at chopping as well finer daily cutting tasks thanks to the ergonomic grip. The full tang goes entirely through the handle so you can strike with the end of it without breaking the grip. The sturdy black leather sheath allows you to fasten the knife on your belt or your pack, and even upside down. The Fallkniven A1 is unaffected by water and works equally well in extreme cold and stifling heat.
