The Casström Woodsman knife is a bush craft knife for people who often work with wood. After all, the scandi grind has been applied to the blade for that exact reason. The knife is designed by Roger Harrington, a bushcraft trainer who started his trainings in 1996. Like all Casström knives this knife feels great in hand.
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 bog oak, which is oak wood that has been underground for quite a long time and has gotten hard and a wonderfully dark colour. A black liner has been placed in between the handle and the wood.
The Casström Woodsman Knife comes with a decent leather sheath enhanced with a belt loop for belts up to (approximately) 6.5 cm. On the side of the sheath you will find a firesteel attached to an elastic band you can use to secure it.
