Ultimate survival knife

by Jakob

The ultimate survival knife,in my opinion, is called Fallkniven - A1 Army Survival Knife. It is a semi-large all-purpose knife for heavy duty use. The blade is made of high quality stainless steel with a length of 6” (15 cm). The blade has a convex edge, which make it suitable for both chopping and cutting.





The full tang goes entirely through the high-friction rubber handle. This is the type of tool you need for tough tasks in the wilderness.

The weatherproof, black zytel sheath secures the knife in place by both friction and a snap loop.

Fallkniven A1 is very well balanced and a very well made item. This knife has met and exceeded my expectations.

Fallkniven, the ultimate survival knife!

Fallkniven, all the way!

Fallkniven, all the way!

I would also recommend the Fallkniven knives, but I have gone for the slightly smaller F1 knife (as issued to Swedish air crews). I have had it for 2 years now, and see no reason to look any further.





For a pocket knife, I would also agree with the leatherman option.

My Top Three Survival Knives

by Nick
(Perth, WA, Australia)

3. ESEE-4: Great knife, great sheath. High quality but you pay that extra for it. ESEE also do the best warranties around by re-supplying a new knife if the old one is damaged. Only down side is it is carbon steel and therefore not as rust resistent as stainless.





2. Gerber LMF II: Great knife, sharpener on the sheath, can lash it to a branch for a spear. Bear Grylls 'Ultimate Survival Knife' modelled on the LMF II.

1. Fallkniven A1: Predictable but the best. Fallkniven also offer the S1 Forest for hunting/fishing which is slightly smaller, then the smaller 'Pilots Knife' the S1. All of the best quality, and IMO worth the price tag.

Opinions Vary

I do agree that both the Frost, (now Mora of Sweden) Morakniv, and Fallkniven are both solid knives. I myself Like the Classic Mora 2 or 2/0 for a general light duty neck knife. My favorite is the Becker BK-2 by Ka-Bar.

Both the Frost Morakniv and the Classic are made by Mora of Sweden. Ask anyone and they will tell you that Mora knives are one of the best knives for the money. They have an almost cult like fallowing. Get any of them and you will be happy.

I like the size and over all feel of the BK-2 over the Fallkniven. I like the heavy 1/4" wide blade. For me, the BK-2 is a better built knife. Saying that, that is not why I would choose the BK-2 over the Fallkniven, or the Classic over the Frost Morakniv. I like high-carbon steel. Yes, you do have to take care of your knife a little better than with the stainless steel. But high-carbon steel is easier to sharpen in the field, and it throws a better spark. Try to sharpen a stainless steel blade on a rock you find in the field. It's almost impossible.

When you get down to it, everyone should buy the knives that fit them the best for the chore that they want to do. There are many knives out there some are good some not so. Some are worth the money you spend while others are a complete wast if money. My recommendation, do a little foot work and see what everyone is saying. Make it a large sample group. For the most part, they public will tell you what to steer away from and what they like. The best reviews are the ones that tell you both the pros and cons of a knife and why they think it is a pro or con.
