The Casström Lars Fält Knife has been developed in conjunction with renowned wilderness and survival expert Lars Fält.
The knife blade is made from thick Sleipner tool steel from Uddeholm with high carbon content which makes the blade durable in hard situations such as wood splitting, but also some chrome which makes it more resistant to corrosion.
About Lars Fält:
Lars Fält is internationally regarded as one of the foremost experts in wilderness and survival skills. Lars founded the Swedish Armed Forces Survival School and was in charge there for many years. His interest in outdoor pursuits, survival and knives came early during his military career.
He has extensive experience as an instructor with airborne units of the Swedish armed forces and has trained the British SAS and US Special Forces. He has also participated as an instructor with other overseas armed forces in terrain as varied as the Canadian arctic through to the Australian outback.
About the steel:
Uddeholm Sleipner carbon/tool steel with high carbon content. The chemical composition allows it to be tempered to a high hardness with retained ductility (ability to deform without breakage) and toughness while being easy to grind and capable of obtaining a very sharp and durable edge. The chromium composition ensures a higher level of corrosion resistance compared to other carbon steel blades. It is still good practice to dry the blade after use and protected with oil or wax when stored in a high humidity environment.

Consider enhancing the way your knife hangs from your belt with the addition of a matching dangler.
New steel seems an improvement over the old k720, having used it to process some kindling for the wood burner it kept an edge well . Not had a chance to test the rust resistance yet but the composition of the steel put it in same realm as A2 which is ok. Comes with a good sheath if your a fat lad the optional dangler is a great option so you don’t have issues with it digging in Great delivery next day postage included and it was dispatched the same day as ordered and delivered next morning
Perfect thank you!
Haven't actually used as yet, mainly due to the current situation we're all living through. However, the knife was delivered quicker than expected and was razor sharp out the box. Fantastic service and item, would definitely recommend 10/10
What a fabulous knife. The balance, heft and hand fit are perfect. Very, very sharp out of the box. The knife itself looks beautiful. I had the opportunity to hold Ray Mears’ own knife and I would say this compares very favourably and it’s a quarter of the price. Lighting fast delivery too. Top marks.
Excellent Knife and good service
