The Casström No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife is an amazing outdoor knife, made in Sweden. When you hold this knife you immediately notice the amazing ergonomics. This knife feels amazing in hand! The somewhat strange looking 'kink' in the handle contributes to a comfortable grip. Casström designed this knife as an all-round outdoor knife. Hunting, fishing, food prep, bushcraft: this knife can handle it all.
The blade is made from Böhler K720 steel. This is a type of steel that is similar to the 02-steel Very tough and easy to sharpen. Important to oil the blade after use: K720 is not stainless. This version is enhanced with a flat grind. As such the blade is a little thicker making the edge better for wood work.
The handle is made from a nice piece of curly birch wood. That is birch root wood. Casstrom has stabilized this wood to make it as sustainable as possible. A black liner is placed in between the wood and the handle.
The Casström No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife comes with a decent leather sheath. This sheath has a belt loop for belts up to (approximately) 6 cm.
