Outdoor Knife from Casstrom Sweden in Sandvik Stainless Steel
This great new knife is built as a multipurpose knife for hunting, bushcraft and general use in the great outdoors. The blade is 3 7/8″” long and made using 3.8mm thick Austrian made O2 high carbon tool steel (Böhler K720) and heat treated to achieve a hardness of 58-60 HRC. The knives are ground with a shaving sharp flat Scandinavian grind and have a satin finish. This steel in combination with the grind makes these knives very strong, yet very easy to sharpen, creating a great edge.
These knives are made with a handle in classic Curly Birch wood with liners, a very handsome hardwood scale that feels great in the hand.
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 the steel: Sandvik stainless steel 14C28N
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%
