CASSKS11804: Lars Falt Bushcraft Fixed Blade

Casstrom Sweden

A very sturdy Bushcraft knife from Casstrom developed together with Bushcraft and survival expert Lars Falt. The knife is very versatile and ideal for general outdoor pursuits as well as longer expeditions. The knife blade is made from thick high carbon tool steel with high carbon content to make the knife durable in hard use such as wood splitting. The steel properties along with the Scandinavian grinding make the blade robust while being easy to handle and easy to grind with a small flat sharpener in the woods. The full-tang construction, i.e. the blade goes all the way through the full width and length of the handle, makes the knife very durable and even if the handle is damaged in any way, the knife can still be used without issues. The handle design is straight and ergonomic and fits both big and small hands. The handle 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.

Superb Woods Knife
I own some other pretty nice bushcraft knives and I use them all as often as I can; mostly for day-to-day tasks and occasional outdoor excursions. However, this one is my main go-to for true camping/bushcraft use. The K720 steel takes and holds a very fine edge and strops back to life nicely after being worn down a bit. It batons and fire sticks very well and balances very nicely. The grip shape is superb, especially due to the slight hump at the top of the spine, mid-grip; ZERO hot spots. The sheath is slightly above adequate but I'm a bit snobby in this regard as I make my own very nice, heavy-duty, wet formed sheaths for most of my knives. Overall, this is an outstanding knife, although, at least to me, the price is a bit high when considering the merely decent sheath. Regardless, I'll be proud to hand this knife down to one of my children when I kick the bucket.

Superior fit and finish
If you have the chance to hold this knife, right away you will be impressed by the balance and feel of it. For sure no hotspots. You can use it comfortably for hours if you had to.Especially high class. Sheet protects the whole knife well. I do recommend the Casstrom dangler attachment as to make this the perfect bushcraft or hiking tool. Scandi grind is my favorite grind. Lars Fält spends more time outdoors every year than indoors. To have his stamp of approval on this very nicely made knife speaks volumes.The only thing that could possibly be made slightly better finish is the sheet.It is well made just don't think they finished it, Easily fixed with wax/waterproofing and a wooden stick to make edges look right.I highly recommend this Casstrom over any other knife out there right now this is the one to own and pass down for generations to come. I have owned two of these for 5 years now.Rocky
