S1 The Forest Knife is probably the best hunting and fishing knife ever made. Its sturdy blade made of the new extremely strong stainless laminate VG10 custom steel is convex grounded for extra strong cutting power with no risk for edge breakage. The modified clippoint design works well for penetrating purposes, the long curved edge is ideal for skinning. The blade is long enough for lighter chopping and won´t break, it´s full 5 mm (0.2″) thick!
Would you prefer to get no reflection from the blade, we offer a black CeraCoat 8H version.
The checkered handle gives a good grip even when your hands are cold or wet. Depending on your needs, you have the possibility to chose from two kinds of sheaths, an open-top dangler in thick, black leather or a zytel sheath with snappers around the handle.
Like all our models, the S1 Forest Knife is well tested before release, you will find no teething problems. If your looking for total quality, a classic knife from Fallkniven AB, is never wrong. Try the S1 Forest Knife, you won´t be disappointed!
S1 black coating
If there are moments when you wish to avoid reflections from your blade, then the black CeraCoat 8H A1 is the option for you. This extremely tough surface will also protect the blade from corrosion. Cera-Coat is a hard coating that consists of Teflon and ceramics. We apply it as a result of a demand, particularly from military users – glossy blades and objects are usually not very popular among these users. However, one should be aware that it is an applied finish, much like paint on a car, and that physical abrasion finally will make the coating to leave from the blade surface. Attaching a black surface on a rust resistant, perfectly smooth blade so that it sticks for time and eternity is all impossible. We have tested some extremely hard coatings, but they proved to be 100 times as costly and made it impossible to hand sharpen the knife.
