Since prehistoric times, the Sami people of Arctic Europe have lived and worked in an area that stretches over the northern parts of Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Russian Kola Peninsula. Traditionally, the Sámi have pursued a variety of livelihoods, including coastal fishing, fur trapping, and sheep herding. Their best-known means of livelihood is semi-nomadic reindeer herding.
The design of the knife is the same today as it was hundreds of years ago. The Stromeng Sami knife has deep roots in Sami culture and their way of life. The time and equipment may have changed, but the knife still enjoys a place of honour in Sami culture as an essential tool.
The handle fittings have always been constructed of brass. Since the pre-Christian era, brass has been a sacred metal to the Sami people, as it was supposed to ward off evil spirits. In addition, ancient Sami folk made use of the knife medicinally.
The knife is available with either an 8" or 9" blade. We also have an 8" version with a finger guard, and darkened blade that was designed for the Norwegian Army Special Forces, who still use this as their preferred knife. Strømeng Sami knives have a handle of slow-growing birch oiled with linseed oil, and sturdy sheaths made of cowhide. The knife blade is carbon steel with the designation NB1248U and a hardness of 59 Rockwell.
Some useful tips when using the knife: The blade closest to the shaft is mainly used for rough work. The middle part of the blade is used especially for precision cutting. When chopping, one or two fingers are placed behind the pommel to shift the force forward. Do not use the entire arm in the stroke during chopping, only the wrist - thus you gain better control of where you are cutting. Being a carbon blade, it is important to keep the blade clean and dry after use.

Ladersmorning leather conditioner is a natural leather grease designed to protect all of your leather gear. It penetrates deeply and makes the leather - regardless of thickness - very soft, smooth and highly water-repellent. This is a traditional leather treatment for all of your boots, bags, straps, belts etc.
Made from: Lanolin, organic vegetable oils, essential birch oil and beeswax.
The Frost River ImOut Duffel Bag is a classic design with rugged simplicity.

Made from 18oz waxed canvas cotton, premium leather and solid brass hardware.
The three sizes of ImOut Duffel Bag provide plenty of options: The Small is a great gym bag, for a change of clothes, toiletries and a pair of shoes. The Carryon is perfect for a weekend away, with a couple changes of clothes, toiletries in a travel kit and a pair of shoes. The Large is the way to go for if you want to carry a good amount more than with the Carryon, not hockey-bag-sized, but in the league of a large duffel bag.

The Casstrom Woodsman knife has been designed by custom knife maker Roger Harrington, from England.
A robust, full-tang knife, with a blade measuring approximately 9cm long, featuring a straight and fairly round handle of 3,000+ year old Bog Oak with a lanyard hole (and leather lanyard). It feels good in both large and small hands. It is supplied with a high quality, strong and deep pocket style leather sheath.
The blade is made of c.4mm thick Böhler K720 high carbon tool steel, making the blade extremely durable with heavy use such as log-splitting. The knife has a Scandinavian grind which makes it very robust and at the same time easy to carve wood with and easy to sharpen using a flat whetstone or diamond sharpener.

The Frost River Vintage Pack in Heritage Black represents some of what Frost River does best, and that’s build reliable, simple-to-like gear that’ll carry a load, big or small – all in unique timeless style. In Heritage Black our Vintage Pack brings a bit of refined back-country utility onto the streets. Built to last with carrying capacity to spare when used for a day (or night) on the town.
Traditional design and timeless canvas construction steeps the Vintage Pack with a sense of nostalgia. Waxed canvas provides weather resistance, resiliency to wear, a great feel, and in Heritage Black, a sense of rugged elegance. There’s capacity here to act as a brief with room for a lunch, a change of clothes for the gym, and a bit more. Handcrafted with solid brass hardware with a unique patina, it is new and old at the same time. It’d make a distinctive weekender bag or carry on for travels, an astute pack for a student and a professional pack for the workforce. The long straps over the top flap work great to stow an extra layer when on the move. The yoke is self-adjusting for an exceptionally comfortable carry.
This pack is enhanced by the addition of premium buckskin padded shoulder straps. Cut from the same burly bridle leather and built with the same care, attention to detail and cushy closed-cell foam as in the canoe and bushcraft packs, this is an upgrade in both style and function. All Frost River buckskin comes from wild deer hides, so each one is a little different and may show scars & evidence of life lived in the wilds of North America.
Heritage Black Vintage Pack dimensions:
- 1x internal map pocket
- Internal rain flaps, large flap over main compartment
- Premium Buckskin padded straps are distinctive and comfortable.
- Double canvas base
- 18 oz. waxed canvas, premium leather, solid brass hardware
