A very sturdy Bushcraft knife from Casström developed together with Bushcraft and survival expert Lars Fält. The knife is very versatile and ideal for general outdoor pursuits as well as longer expeditions. The knife blade is made from thick Böhler K720 tool steel with high carbon content to make the knife durable in hard use such as wood splitting. The steel properties along with the Scandinavian grinding make the blade robust while being easy to handle and easy to grind with a small flat sharpener in the woods. The full-tang construction, i.e. the blade goes all the way through the full width and length of the handle, makes the knife very durable and even if the handle is damaged in any way, the knife can still be used without problems. The handle design is straight and ergonomic and fits both big and small hands. The handle is made of 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. The chemical composition allows it to be cured to a high hardness with retained ductility (ability to deform without breakage) and toughness while being easy to grind and capable of obtaining a very sharp and durable egg. 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%
