Made of super-hard and tough laminated VG10 steel, Fällkniven’s A1 all-purpose knife ($260 to $360) is ready for heavy-duty use in both food prep and everyday tasks. It performs just as well in extreme cold as piping hot weather, thanks to its water-repelling properties—perfect for survival use. And to ensure that this knife is always handy, Fällkniven provides you with a sturdy sheath that can fasten to your belt or bag.
Checking in at 11 inches total, 6.3 inches of that the blade, the A1 weighs 12 ounces, made up of steel and an ergonomically friendly Kraton handle. Made in Japan by famed knife maker Ichiro Hattori, Fällkniven’s knives are tested at Luleå University of Technology of Sweden to confirm their strength and durability. These knives will hold up to any task for a lifetime of use and can be had with either natural stainless or black blade.
You won’t be the only one carrying this exceptional knife—Fällkniven is an official “Purveyor to His Majesty, the King of Sweden” since 1999.
