Casstrom Sweden No. 10 SFK Fixed Blade Knife 4" 14C28N Full Flat Ground Drop Point, Orange G10 Handles, Black Leather Sheath - KS13130
CASSKS13130: No.10 SFK, Orange G10
This strong full-tang knife is built for versatile use during hunting, fishing and general use in 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 4" long and made of about 3.5 mm thick Sandvik 14C28N, a Swedish stainless steel developed specifically for knives (58-59 HRC).
The knife is sharpened with a Full Flat grind and has a satin finish. This steel combined with the grinding makes these knives very easy to cut with, and effective for a variety of tasks. The blade maintains an edge well but is still very easy to sharpen. This type of grind is not optimal for batoning and prying but rather optimized for efficient cutting due to the low angle and thinness behind the edge. To increase the strength the secondary bevel needs to be sharpened back and angle increased a little. However, for heavy use, it is recommended you choose a version with Scandi grind.
The knife comes with a very sturdy knife sheath made of 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.
About Sandvik 14C28N Stainless Steel
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% (HRC 58-59).
Full Flat Grind
A full flat grind features a flat bevel that travels from the spine of the knife to the edge with a small secondary bevel to form the sharpened edge. This grind is not as exceptionally strong overall as the Scandi, but still suitable for most woodcraft activity. The advantage of the full flat is when cutting softer material such as prepping meals, skinning game, etc. The secondary bevel is also generally easier to maintain than the full v-grind of the Scandi.
