Casstrom Sweden
 
This strong full-tang knife is built for versatile use during hunting, fishing and general use of the forest. It is a very sturdy knife you can skin a moose with, fillet a fish with as well as carve wood. The blade is about 3.875" long and made of about 0.14" (3.5 mm) thick Sandvik 14C28N, a Swedish stainless steel developed specifically for knives (58-59 HRC). The knives are ground with a shaving sharp flat scandi grind and have a satin finish. This steel in combination with the grind makes these knives very strong, yet very easy to sharpen and it takes a great edge.

These knives are made with a handle in Bubinga wood with liners, a very handsome wood scale that feels great in the hand.

The knife comes with a very sturdy knife sheath made of 0.12" (3mm) thick vegetable tanned leather. The sheath has an extra wide belt loop, a bottom opening for fluid and a hole for a leg attachment.

Sandvik's most recently developed product in its popular series of knife steel. The optimized composition creates a steel with a unique combination of excellent edge holding features (stability, sharpenability and sharpness), high hardness and high corrosion resistance. This new version steel has the ability to be heat treated so that the wear resistance is improved over prior steel types without affecting the microstructure. To sharpen the knife is therefore relatively easy, while edge stability in terms of chipping and edge rolling is still very good. Steel structure analysis: C 0.62%, Si 0.2%, Mn 0.6%, P 0.025%, S 0.01%, Cr 14.0%, N 0.11%

Time to Upgrade Your Mora, or Condor Bushlore? Älska den här kniven!
This is my first Casstrom Knife, and I am looking forward to trying it out. I sure like the Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel (comparable to 440C w/better stain resistance-Nitrogen). This steel has good edge retention, but is fairly easy to sharpen. I be down wit dat! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> These bubinga wood scales on the Casstrom No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife (SFK) handle are really handsome (Kevazingo wood – from Africa), and the wood grain comes to life after wiping down with some linseed oil. I like it appearance wise, better than their birch handled knives (just me); and, I believe bubinga has a higher Janka Hardness, than birch. Handle is comfortable, fairly grippy, and secure. I like the ergonomic curvature in the handle. This will add to comfort, and lessen fatigue with long use. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This blade comes with a true scandi grind; as opposed to a short compound saber scandi grind (secondary bevel at edge, like Condor, Bushlore). This is a very strong edge, not as prone to chipping/rolling. Description above states a hardness of *58-60 HRC. Casstrom’s website says 57-59 HRC on their 14C28N knife blades (like I could tell the difference). It also comes in O2 (*Bӧhler K720), if you like carbon steel better. Nice drop point blade design puts the point at natural center, where it is easy to control/index/maneuver. This blade is not overly thick at 9/64” (just over a 1/8”), which will promote good slicing with low friction/drag; but should be strong enough to handle any task that comes your way. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> No. 10 SFK comes with a nice leather sheath. Knife seems very secure in it. Casstrom makes a nice No. 3 carabiner opening Dangler in Cognac Brown (available @ KnifeCenter.com) that will enhance your mobility, so you don’t get poked in the ribs by the handle, or stabbed in the leg (been there, done that) when you squat, bend, sit, etc. Nice matching Ferro rod, too. But, I’m sure I can lose it pretty quick. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The Casstrom No. 10 Swedish Forest Knife has excellent fit ‘n’ finish, and pleasing eye appeal. The well thought out design makes it a pleasure to use. It will handle all bushcraft duties, and be begging for more. Tack Kniv Center för den vackra kniven. >>>>>>>>>>>>>> P.S. Does it come sharp? You betcha! The first time I put it in the sheath it cut through the side of the sheath (I’m just sick over my stupidity). I’ll put a printing plate aluminum sheath liner in my replacement sheath when it arrives. I’ll definitely go with that No. 3 dangler.
