The Casström Lars Fält Lock Back is a cool bushcraft knife, developed in cooperation with Lars Fält. This Swedish survival expert is a real hero amongst enthusiasts. His books are used all over Sweden: for educational purposes, but also to train soldiers. This emphasizes how widely recognised his expertise is. This Casström Lars Fält Lock Back is a pocket knife that was developed with him.
Experts immediately recognize the lines of the fixed knife that Fält developed in cooperation with Casström. The general lines of the design are very similar. The size, however, is a lot more modest. With a 7.5 cm blade you will have enough for small wood cutting tasks. The blade has a scandi grind which makes it great for wood work. You do, however, need to keep in mind that is still a pocket knife. It is not made for the more demanding tasks or batoning. Casström produces amazing fixed knives for this purpose.
You open this knife with two hands and a backlock prevents accidental closing. The blade is made from Böhler N690 stainless steel. A type of steel that is easy to sharpen. The handle is made from Curly Birch. This is birch root wood from Scandinavia. As you have grown accustomed to the handle is also ergonomically shaped. It nicely fills your hand and offers enough curves and grip to be able to use it for a long period of time.
This pocket knife does justice to Lars Fält's design and outdoor philosophy. And all of that for a very good price. You rarely find similar, in Europe produced, knives for such a price. We also noticed that this is a user's knife. A little leeway on the blade or a slightly sharp steel liner is simply a part of the package.
