A very sturdy bushcraft knife from Casström developed together with renowned wilderness and survival expert Lars Fält.

The knife is very versatile and ideal for a variety of outdoor activities as well as longer expeditions in the wilderness. The knife blade is made from thick Uddeholm Sleipner tool steel with a high chromium content to make the knife less susceptible to staining, whilst remaining durable even with hard use (such as for wood splitting). The steel quality coupled with the Scandinavian grind make the blade robust whilst being easy to handle and easy to sharpen with a small flat sharpener in the outdoors.

The full-tang construction (the blade goes all the way through the full width and length of the handle) means that 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 the grip of both big and small hands and 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 Lars Fält:
Lars Fält is internationally regarded as one of the foremost experts in wilderness and survival skills.

A large part of Lars’ life has been about bushcraft and survival. He founded the Swedish Armed Forces Survival School and was in charge there for many years. His interest in outdoor pursuits, survival and knives came early during his military career. Lars Fält has extensive experience as an instructor with airborne units of the Swedish armed forces and has trained with British and US Special Forces. He has also participated as an instructor with other overseas armed forces in terrain as varied as the Canadian arctic through to the Australian outback.

Whilst working with indigenous peoples in different parts of the world, Lars has developed a profound respect for their knowledge and view of life. Many of these contacts have followed Lars Fält throughout his life, and provided an important source of knowledge and inspiration for the development and adaptation of survival techniques. With the ending of his military career, Lars concentrated his efforts on spreading knowledge about the wilderness and survival techniques to the general public through education, lectures and the publication of a number of books.

About the steel:
Uddeholm Sleipner steel is a tool steel well suited for knife manufacture. The steel is heat treated according to normal procedures. Once hardened, Sleipner steel offers good edge retention and is easy to sharpen, even in the field. The addition of almost 8% chromium offers better stain resistance in comparison to other carbon steels (although it should be pointed out that it is not a stainless steel, and is not resistant to staining or corrosion).

Composition: C 0.9%, Si 0.9%, Mn 0.5%, Cr 7.8%, V 0.5%
