Fallkniven


Fallkniven are, without a doubt, a well known and respected knife maker and today I'm chufffed to bits as I'm about to add their entire range to the Bearclaw website - especially my favourites below ;- the F1, A1 and the beast A2 ...........

Literally the standard all production knives can be judged against.

I have now only one Fallkniven,its the S1.

its bene on my use for some...6 months,with no mercy and i havent even managed to crack the edge,it still cuts well and keeps going strong.It just might be the best knife ive owned till now.
Im goin to make a new sheath for it though with plastic liner and loop for firesteel,and it will have a flap oven the handle too.
Maybe some day ill manage to get my hands on F1 just to se eis it so superb as i hear.Not that id suspect that it wouldnt be.

Hej Perkunas - thats interesting as I have just started to trial the S1 - the F1 is similar in the hand as the S1 but I suspect if you like the S1 your better off sticking with it.

The A2 is a big best and makes an ideal Leuku - I use this on winter courses instead of the smaller F1 and now the S1.

I'll let you know how I get on with the S1 when I get back from Sweden in a couple of weeks - if I like the S1 might even send you my old F1 to play with!

Sounds intresting,your idea of offering the f1.I can pay for it too you know:).

Leuku you say.Theyre maybe the most usable knives in our knife culture,IMO,as i like a bit tougher knives than the traditional puukko´s we mostly still have and use,although i respect and admire our own puukko makers so much,and im studying the technicues of knife making as much as i can afford to,in knife and blacksmith courses.If i am anyone to say,i might warn you about some specific finnish puukko/knife making companies that are having their blades and some full knives made overseas....as u might have been reading in my blog maybe. I own several leukus,and the older they are,the better they are too,its a shame.Im dreaming and planning of making full-tang lauku,it might be just the tick for me,as i like to carry atleast:) two knives with me,one bigger for harder tasks and one smaller,for food making,game skinning and general ligh use,this might be as well some folding knife too.
