A very sturdy bushcraft knife from Casström, developed together with renowned wilderness and survival expert Lars Fält.
The full tang blade is made from thick Böhler K720 tool steel with high carbon content and finished with a Scandinavian grind. This makes the blade ultra durable (even with hard use such as splitting wood) whilst being easy to handle and easy to maintain.
The handle design is straight and ergonomic and fits the grip of both big and small hands. It's made from selected curly birch, treated with a traditional Scandinavian linseed oil mixture.
A sturdy and deep sheath in vegetable tanned leather and a leather strap for the handle is included.

About the steel
Böhler K720 (carbon steel / tool steel, AISI O2) Strong oil-hardened tool steel with high carbon content. Cured to a high hardness with retained ductility (ability to deform without breakage) and toughness. Easy to grind and capable of obtaining a very sharp yet durable edge.
Due to low chromium content, it will rust if left wet and therefore must be dried after use and protected with oil or wax when stored in a high humidity environment.
Composition: C 0.9%, Si 0.25%, Mn 2.0%, Cr 0.35%, V 0.1
