As a preface, I'm a big fan of both the Fallkniven and Bark River lines. I recently gave away my Fallkniven F1 and my Bark River Aurora to fellow colleagues of mine headed back to the Central Asian theatre. So now I'm back into buying mode for myself! That said, I recently saw a whole line of F1's that have been re-gripped with Micarta handles in what looks to be like a collaborative venture between both awesome companies. Here's the link: http://www.knivesshipfree.com/index.php?cPath=466_501 So I have some questions about this line ... and I thought maybe some of you EDC Folks might be able to help. 1. Since the lanyard hole is better-placed than the sub-optimal F1's placement, does this F1 have a different full-tang structure down in the handle area? 2. Can you still use this knife's pommel as an impromptu hammer like you can with the F1? It doesn't look like from the photo. Yes, hammering with the F1's pommel is not a great primary option ... but it's a doable last-ditch option and rarely hurts the knife. 3. Any of you have testimonials or general opinions on this hybrid setup? I'm curious about handle ergonomics, etc. 4. Anyone have good suggestions on a good custom kydex sheath setup that accomodates a firesteel loop, paracord wrapping/attachment, and possibly holds a tiny survival kit (altoids tin size)? *** Thanks!
