Casstrom N0.10 Swedish Forest Knife
This robust full-tang knife is built for versatile use in many disciplines including bushcraft, outdoor survival, woodland work and game hunting. It is a very sturdy knife that you can use to skin a moose as well as carve hard wood or split smaller logs with. The blade is about 10cm long and made from approx. 4mm thick O2 high carbon tool steel (Böhler K720 ) heat treated to achieve a hardness of 58-60 HRC. The knife is sharpened with a Scandinavian grind and the blade has a satin finish.
  • The handle is 12cm long and is green linen Micarta laminate. Between the handle scales and steel are black liners to increase durability over time. The handle is secured with strong brass rivets which also gives them great classic look. The knife comes with a very sturdy black sheath made from 3mm thick vegetable tanned leather. The sheaths have an extra wide belt loop, an opening in the bottom for liquid, and a hole for a lanyard strap.
  • ABOUT THE STEEL:O2 HIGH CARBON TOOL STEEL. Böhler Tool Steel K720 (O2) is a very tough and strong oil hardened high carbon tool steel. The focus of the steel is toughness and edge stability. The chemical composition allows it to be hardened to a high degree whilst maintaining ductility and toughness. This means the blade holds its edge for longer at the same time as it is resistant to chipping and cracking under heavy use. This steel also has a very fine structure making it easy to sharpen and achieve a razor sharp edge with. Whilst easy to sharpen, the low chromium content means it will tarnish if left wet and it must therefore be wiped after use and protected by oil or wax when put away for storage if you want to avoid tarnish building up.
