    Great! Do you by chance have/had one of the original versions to compare against?

    I have the base model S1 and like it very much. Would be interested in your observations of the steel and grind and handle material/fit. The originals are a bit slim as if made for winter gloves. But I really like the base S1 overall.

    So far I've just handled it and tried out the new sheath. I like it really good, it is hefty, think mini A1 just with a more aggressive edge! :D

    And the sheath is amazing, if you clamp down the locking lever there is none of the famous Fällkniven rattle!!

    I only have the A1. The grip on the F1x has a much more aggressive texture compared to the originals. The grind feels nice but I have not tested it on any wood yet, I really don't think it needs any re-profiling or anything.

    Fit n finish is great, and the handle fits my(medium) hands nice.

    Noticed today that my F1x came with a microbevel on it at a ridiculously wide angle. I took out my benchstones and removed it...

    So if this is how they all come, these knives(I suspect this goes for FK's whole range?) definitely benefit from putting your own edge on it.
