Woodsman, a new bushcraft knife from Casström!
A classic wilderness knife designed by custom knife maker Roger Harrington, England.
This is a factory SECOND, meaning there may be defects to the appearance of the handle/blade, for example:
- an unusually large knot
- very uneven colour or wood pattern
- cracks in the wood
- very unsymmetrical grind
- slightly bent blade
- no print on the blade.
Because of this we give a 30 % discount. There are typically no quality defects to the construction or material, or anything that should affect the functionality much, simply issues with appearance or fit and finish! Please note however that there is no warranty given on these factory seconds.
Proper full-tang knife with a blade measuring approx. 9cm long , straight and fairly round handle made to suit both large and small hands. The leather cord for the handle and a strong deep pocket leather sheath is included.
The blade is made of around 4mm thick Böhler K720 high carbon tool steel to make the blade extremely durable for heavy use such as log-splitting, or so-called "batoning" without making the knife to heavy or uncomfortable to carry.
The knife has a Scandinavian grind to make it very robust at the same time easy to carve wood with and easy to sharpen on a small flat whetstone/sharpener in the forest. The knife is a really good all-round tool for field use.
The handle is made of about 5000 year old bog oak, dug up in England. It has a rough texture and the colour tone can vary from pitch black to dark brown.
