A Casström hunting knife has to satisfy a different set of criteria than our other outdoor knives. For hygiene, a stainless steel blade and a handle that can be washed clean of fluids whilst retaining water resistance, and a full flat grind which lends itself to hunting-type tasks.
All of these requirements have been met with our No.10 Swedish Forest knife, with this particular model having a stabilised curly birch handle, coloured with blue dye, for its pure aesthetics. The handles of these striking-looking knives are made from wood that has been stabilised with acrylics, increasing the density of the material and making it impregnable and resistant to cracks and movement regardless of climate. Washable, waterproof, and very tough.
Whether it be field dressing, skinning, or butchering game, this knife is going to make light work of it.
At Casström, we pride ourselves on attention to detail. Our knives are close to custom-grade quality but at production knife cost. If you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase, feel secure in the knowledge that you can return it for a full refund.
