Casstrom Sweden Woodsman K720 Fixed 3.5" O2 Scandi Ground Blade, Bog Oak Wood Handles, Leather Sheath with Fire Steel - KS10829
CASSKS10829: Woodsman - K720/Scandi/Bog Oak/ Firesteel
A classic wilderness knife designed by custom knife maker Roger Harrington, England.
Proper full-tang knife with a blade measuring approx. 9cm long, straight and fairly round handle made to suit both large and small hands. The leather cord for the handle and a strong deep pocket leather sheath with matching firesteel is included.
The blade is made of around 0.15" (4mm) thick Böhler K720 high carbon tool steel to make the blade extremely durable for heavy use such as log-splitting, or so-called "batoning" without making the knife to heavy or uncomfortable to carry.
The knife has a Scandinavian grind to make it very robust at the same time easy to carve wood with and easy to sharpen on a small flat whetstone/sharpener in the forest. The knife is a really good all-round tool for field use.
Böhler Tool Steel K720 is a very tough and strong oil hardened high carbon tool steel. The chemical composition allows it to be hardened to a high degree whilst maintaining ductility and toughness at the same time as it is easy to sharpen and can obtain a razor sharp edge. 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. Steel analysis: C. 0.9%, Si. 0.25%, Mn. 2.0%, Cr. 0.35% V. 0.1% (HRC 58-60)

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
