SWEDA1K: A1 Swedish Survival Knife

With this knife a new world standard is being set! Technical design, ergonomics, and economy are brought together within the model A1, representing the leading concept available today. The knife meets and exceeds established international standards for strength, personal security and value.

Model A1 is a semi-large all-purpose knife for heavy duty use. The powerful blade is made of extremely hard yet tough laminated VG10 steel and will withstand the stress of hard use. The knife is superb to chop with, but also works very well with daily tasks, thanks to the ergonomic grip. The full tang goes entirely through the handle, so you can strike the end of it without breaking the grip. The sturdy black zytel sheath allows you to fasten the knife on your belt or your pack - even upside down. Model A1 is a water repelling concept which works just as well in extreme cold as in stifling heat.

Cons: None
Hard use outdoor knife.
This knife is everything you need and nothing you don't. The blade shape, grind lines, and edges sharpness are perfect. It shaved hair out of the box. The full tang goes all the way through the comfortable handle. The edge is convex, perfect for hard use in the woods while retaining sharpness. The overall heft and handling are just right. The polymer sheath is tough. I would drill a small hole in the end to let water drain out. Otherwise, everything is just as it should be. This knife is my new favorite.

Don't skimp and get an SRK...
Worth every penny even though you can find it for less on other sites (if you trust those random sellers...) Far superior to the Cold Steel SRK. Thicker blade, exceptional balance & heft, best laminate around and the unique concave blade profile splits wood lIke nobodys business. Sheath is modestly ok: I replaced the nylon belt strap with a kydex adapter plate and attached a Bladetech belt clip. Great handle, too: excellent grip and absorbs the shock from any sort of chopping.

This Knife is a BEAST
I'm not claiming to be an expert on blades, but I've handled my fair share during my military career and side projects. With that in mind, I've got to say this is definitely the best blade I've ever had my hands on. Depending on what you want from a knife, then that's all on you, but for me this knife is just outstanding in every respect. It's just straight forward and clean, no buzz-saw or bells and whistles, this is just a super high quality full tang blade. I could only think of maybe one or two manufacturers who meet the quality of this knife. Myself, I have small or medium hands, so the size of the handle doesn't phase me. I personally would like to see more handle options.... but aside from that I couldn't be happier with this blade. This chopper will get passed on for generations, my old military issued Ka-Bar has just been retired.
