The Casström No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife is an amazing outdoor knife made in Sweden. When you hold this knife for the first time you will immediately notice the amazing ergonomics. This knife feels absolutely amazing in hand! The somewhat strange looking ‘dent’ in the handle contributes to the grip. Casström has designed this knife as an all-round outdoor knife. Hunting, fishing, bushcraft, food prep: this knife can do it all!
The blade is made from Böhler K720 steel, a type of tool steel similar to O2 steel. Easy to sharpen and very tough. Good to know: after use you need to add a layer of oil to the blade as K720 isn’t stainless. This edition has been enhanced with a scandi grind. As such the blade is a little thicker and the edge a little more suited for woodwork.
The handle is made from stunning oak wood that has been treated with flaxseed oil. We recommend you use the same oil to properly protect the wood. To keep the blade in great shape we recommend Ballistol. A black liner has been placed in between the wood and the handle.
The Casström No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife comes with a decent leather sheath with a belt loop for belts up to (approximately) 6 cm.

I love the angle of the handle. Full tang blade. Decent thickness of steel. Guaranteed for batoning. Lovely finish. Sheath seems a little flimsy.
