Fallkniven A1 Survival Knife: With this knife a new world standard is being set! Technical design, ergonomics, and economy are brought together within the model A1, representing the leading concept available today. The A1 knife meets and exceeds established international standards for strength, personal security and value.
Fallkniven A1 Knife
Model A1 is a semi-large all-purpose knife for heavy duty use. The powerful blade is made of extremely hard yet tough laminated VG10 steel and will withstand the stress of hard use. The knife is superb to chop with, but also works very well with daily tasks, thanks to the ergonomic grip. The full tang goes entirely through the handle, so you can strike the end of it without breaking the grip. The sturdy black zytel sheath allows you to fasten the knife on your belt or your pack – even upside down. Fallkniven A1 is a water repelling concept which works just as well in extreme cold as in stifling heat.

Calling all campers and backpackers! New at Makais is this awesome wood powered stainless stove from Emberlit: The Emberlit Stove weighs less than 11.3 oz (316 g) and is constructed of rugged stainless steel. When you compare that to a full canister of fuel and burner, the difference in weight is astounding! The stainless steel EmberLit is impervious to corrosion and remarkably strong. This camping or backpacking stove will hold the weight of any pot or pan that will sit securely without wobble. Like the rest of the EmberLit line, this wood burning stove comes with a lifetime guarantee because you are never going to wear it out. With use, the individual panels that make up the EmberLit may take on a slight warp. This is normal and doesn’t affect the assembly or durability of the stove. Great for camping, backpacking, bushcraft, wilderness survival, and disaster preparation.
