The Karesuando Boar Exclusive Survival is a very fine piece of handcraft made in the Swedish part of Lapland in a traditional Northern Scandinavian way.
The Blade is 10cm (4.2 inches) long, 2.4 cm (0,95 inches) wide and 3mm (0.125 inches) thick, is Very Sharp and is made from high quality Sandvik 12C27 stainless "surgical" steel (HRC 57) sharpened with a flat Scandinavian grind.
The blade extends with an internal tang that stretches approx 2.5" into the handle and is secured very firmly so that it won't come loose. In fact Karesuando offers a Lifetime Guarantee that if the blade comes loose you will get an new knife straight away! Basically the blade will never come loose! The internal tang design is very beneficial from a weight perspective.
The Handle is made from curly birch stained with a golden red/brown colour and also has a reindeer antler spacer.
The Sheath is made from half-tanned cow hide leather and includes a slot for the matching ferro rod / fire lighter.
This is an excellent knife for hunting, camping, bushcraft, fishing and forest activities. It is also suitable for carving and could be used in all kinds of outdoor activities.
Very smooth and contoured handle. Fits your hand perfectly. Blade is very sharp and shiny! Fire starter and sheath are top quality. I must admit it is a lovely knife but would have liked it to be slightly heavier. No matter it will serve me well I'm sure. 5*****
