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.

The knife is very well made, sturdy and comfortable in the hand. I have been applying leather grease to the sheath and boiled linseed oil to the handle for preservation purposes as this is a quality knife and has the potential to last a couple of lifetimes. Absolutely nil regrets in purchasing this knife and dealing with Natural Man and will continue to deal with them as the service provided was very conscientious as was the delivery.
Beautiful knife, top steel, fast delivery. Everything perfect!
1st class knife that is all you would ever need Quality is top notch Service from Natural Man again was the best Thanks
I am very pleased with the knife, an extremely well made product. The service from Natural Man really was excellent. I will be using them again very soon.
I received this knife and having owned it for 2 weeks I can say that it’s nothing shy of perfect in a utility, do-everything application. I have the No.10 Swedish Forest knife from Casstrom so I knew that the quality would be exceptional. Beautiful Scandinavian grind comes shaving sharp out the box and I look forward to using it for years to come. I would also like to add that I live in Scotland and I believe Natural Man is based in Wales... this package arrived around 13:00 the day after it was dispatched. Very fast shipping and excellent service all round. No problems with both Casstrom and Natural man, I would recommend them both to anyone.
