Fallkniven describes this item as follows:

S1 The Forest Knife is probably the best hunting and fishing knife ever made. Its sturdy blade made of the extremely strong stainless laminate VG10 custom steel is convex grounded for extra strong cutting power with no risk for edge breakage. The modified clip point 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 reflexes 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!

Zytel sheath

The injection molded zytel sheath offers a neat safe and strong combination of qualities which should be very attractive to any user.

Stealth Tank?
This knife is a solid, heavy outdoor knife that just begs to be used, all in a sleek looking package. It came shaving sharp out of the box, and has stayed so. I am very impressed by the feel in-hand. I'll be making a leather sheath for this, though the plastic sheath works quite well. (A little form over function on my part, I guess) It can be found for $135, and is really a quality, bomb-proof knife.

fantastic knife
Fallkniven products tend to be a bit overpriced for their performance, but this knife definitely earns its $150. The VG-10 steel holds up very well, the geometry of the blade produces a very sharp and sturdy edge. The sheath is compact and comfortable, and the whole package is just the right size for a survival/utility knife. Does just about everything well, from wood to meat to paper. I very good choice if you can only take one knife.
