The Fallkniven F series of knives might just be the most legendary and highly acclaimed knives that I’ve reviewed on my site to date. The F series boasts the mighty credential of being the official knife of the Swedish Air Force since 1995 and it continues to hold that title. The F series are also a fan favorite among bushcrafters and survivalists.

A lot of times, with military knives, you get an overly technical handle, far too aggressive gimping, and a half-dozen other features that over-complicate things. But the Fallkniven F1 stays true to what you’d expect from Swedish Designs. They have focused on functionality over trendy looks.
