Fällkniven F1 Pro

In 2015 Fällkniven launched the new knife series Pro. This series contain a sturdier version of the standard F1 knife. Let's check out the Fällkniven F1 Pro.




The development process of the Pro series started back in 2010 and the goal was to push the limits even further than the standard knife models; F1, S1 and A1. The extra durability of the Pro knives is enabled by; a thicker blade made of laminate cobalt steel, a stainless steel finger guard and a new zytel sheath. And all the above is delivered in a shock-resistant and water-proof box also containing a DC4 whetstone.

Hultafors Qvarfot Felling Axe

The Qvarfot Felling Axe is one out of eight models in the new Hultafors Premium Axe series.
The Premium line will replace the Classic line. The hand forged Qvarfot consist of a Swedish made slim 26" axe handle from American hickory and a 0,85 kg heavy axe head made of Swedish steel. This full size axe is one of my favorites when it comes to robust tasks around the camp. The axe is slim yet heavy duty.
