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 an orange-coloured handle of G10 (a very tough, high-pressure fibreglass laminate). When you are field-dressing and need to put your knife down, countless hunters have been thankful for the bright orange colour, which makes the knife easy to see.
Whether it be field dressing, skinning, or butchering game, the Casström No.10 SFK will make light work of it.
