Casstrom Sweden Lars Fält Lockback Folding Knife 3" N690 Scandi Ground Blade, Curly Birch Wood Handles - 17004
CASSKS17004: Lars Falt Lockback Folding Knife
If you are looking for a very sturdy bushcraft folding knife to carry in your pocket, look no further than this lockback folder from Casström developed together with renowned wilderness and survival expert Lars Fält. The 3" blade is made from Böhler N690 steel with a Scandinavian grind which allows for easy carving and sharpening. The handle slabs are made of select, beautiful, fine curly birch which is normally found on its fixed blade counterparts. The curly birch slabs feel seamless against the brass pins, lockback liners, and they provide a great grip while in the hand.
Designed to be convenient and reliable to carry in the wilderness, the Lars Falt folder will please the most discerning bushcraft enthusiast. With its closed length of 4.25" and weighing only 3.8 oz., you will hardly notice that you're carrying a knife at all. A leather thong allows you to reach in your pocket and easily pull it out for use. The blade tension can be easily adjusted with a flathead screwdriver or whatever you have in the wilderness if need be.
The Lars Falt Lockback Folder brought home the coveted BLADE Show's Award for Best Knife Collaboration in June 2019.

About the Steel
Böhler N690 is a cobalt-enriched steel from Austrian Böhler. N690 shares some properties with other cobalt-enriched steels, eg. ATS-55 and VG-10. The cobalt increases the wear-resistance of the blade thanks to the even crystal structure.
