The Fallkniven S1 Forest Knife is one of the best knife ever made for outdoor adventure and fishing. The sturdy blade of the S1 made of extremely strong laminated VG10 custom stainless steel. The edge of the S1 is a convex grind for extra strong cutting power. The modified clip point blade shape works extremely well for penetrating tough materials, and the long-curved edge is ideal for skinning. The blade of the S1 is long enough for mild chopping work. With a full 5mm (0.2?) thickness, there is little chance the blade could ever break. The checkered handle of the S1 provides an excellent grip in all conditions even when your hands are cold and wet. If you are looking for top quality classic knife, the Fallkniven S1 is one of the best in the world. If your needs require that no reflections come from your knife blade, we offer a black CeraKote option. The CeraKote is an extremely tough surface coating will also protect the blade from corrosion. CeraKote is a hard coating made of Teflon and ceramics that we apply for military users and others who want to avoid shiny blades. Be aware, however, that although CeraKote is an industry standard, it is also just a finish applied to the metal blade like painting a car. Please note that physical abrasions could scratch through the CeraKote coating. Over time, the black CeraKote may separate from the blade, but more durable coatings make the knife difficult to sharpen and cost up to 100 times more than CeraKote.
