Not to be a Negative Nancy... But I don't really understand the choice of steel. VG-10 on something that is marketed as a survival knife seems strange. I understand that VG-10 has great corrosion resistance, but I would personally want a tougher, less chippy steel on a survival knife.

Agreed, and with the size and weight of the blade.... why isn't it 35-40 dollars? Oh, because it's a Fallkniven. At least it has imo the best style of grind, but I wouldn't want just a vg10 blade
At about $20 shipping, this is not a good deal. You can buy these all day long on Amazon for about $120 shipped.
I'm happy with mine, but the box got beaten up pretty badly after being shipped loose in a bubble wrap envelope.
Shipping is $21+. That seems extortionate. It's shipping within the EU. And is quite light and small. What is this exorbitant fee for?
$112.27 with leather sheath at Walmart.com
A week too late for this drop. I ordered one from an online vendor for $35 more! But, I purchased one with a leather sheath. This is a great deal for anyone on the fence.
If you can only have 'one' knife this is the one. Google/youtube "Fallkniven A1 Destruction Test" grab a beer or cup of Joe and you'll be very entertained. The F1 shares the same laminated VG10 design as the A1.
If you have the extra cash, save a bit more and spring for the F1dz with Lam. CoS. It's amazing.

Or maybe just try the Mora Companion and find out that's all the knife you really need. ūüėĀ

So true
Do these come with the fallkniven hard case with foam inserts?

No. That's only on the Pro model. And the Pro is a very different knife in steel and blade shape.
I’ll look for the next drop or maybe the leather sheath version. My wallet needs a chance to recover from other Massdrop purchases.
One of my all time favorite knives, I have two of them plus the S1. If I could only have one knife, this would probably be it. That or my new MSK-1, which is AMAZING. This is a way better price then I ever paid for the two I have. I'd jump on this if I didn't have two already.
Does anyone know if the sheath is MOLLE-compatible? Or if there's a MOLLE sheath for this knife?

We use a rubber knife with a kydex holster that's provided for by the group for hand to hand practice, but for actual operations we need to have a knife.

Sheath is nylon belt loop only. At least the one that comes with it. It's a basic nylon sheath... it's actually pretty decent but nothing special or tactical. I also bought leather sheath for mine. I'm sure you could find one or make one. I would not pass on this knife just because of the sheath. I love mine. I have 2 of these and the S1 which is bigger, super nice too. This is a killer price:-)
So is there a reason VG-10 knives seem to be so expensive? I ask because I bought my Spyderco Centofante III from amazon for $50 back in '09, which uses VG-10 steel.
Edit: By the way I know that sometimes sheath and handle materials come into play, but I can't imagine $50+ worth of play.

I felt others may have been skeptical. Too often, some makers use a thin welded on rat's tail to connect the pummel. Also, other flight rescue knives I have seen have an enclosed partial tang to minimize the odds of electrocution and those with pummels did conduct electricity from the blade.

the reason I said it is full tang is because that guy is asking why the price is high...full tang need more steel...so it may bring up the price. full tang is not better than partial tang or hide tang if they done by good knife maker. Fällkniven is very well established knife company, full tang and full convex grind blade are almost signature feature for them. I adore skeptic people, and I am a skeptic myself...but waste time on some company already being known to be truthful and quality driven is not something I can personally understand... I don't mean that good company won't do something like that, I am simply saying they have less chance to do it and people should not spend time to worrying about every company may fake things. or the whole 'building your reputation' is pointless...
