Our comment: While you could maybe imagine a "Survival knife" to look different, the Fällkniven F1 is one of the best known Survival knives for good reason. It is very popular in the Survival/Outdoors/Bushcraft scene for its outstanding quality and ergonomics. The rubbery handle fits your hand incredibly well and will get you plenty of grip even when wet. The blade is made of high quality VG10 steel and can take a really sharp edge and hold it for quite some time.
