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 Böhler K720 tool steel (O2) with high carbon content which makes it extremely durable under hard use conditions.
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 with British 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:
Böhler K720 (O2) is a strong, oil-hardened tool steel with high carbon content. The chemical composition allows it to be cured to a high hardness with retained ductility (ability to deform without breakage) and toughness while being easy to sharpen to a very sharp and durable edge. Due to low chromium content, it will rust if left wet and therefore must be dried after use and protected with oil or wax when stored in a high humidity environment.

Excellent Knife and good service
Very pleased with my order
Decent high quality piece of kit. Suitably heavyweight yet comfortable ... and razor sharp out of the box. Excellent leather sheath too. Overall excellent value for money and quick service from Natural Man.
This knife is absolutely exceptional, and comes razor sharp. The sheath is of high quality leather, housing the knife snuggly and safely. The knife itself is very comfortable to hold, and is very easy to use with a firesteel. I would personally recommend this knife to anyone!
Fantastic 1st decent knife. Absolutely beautiful curly birch handle and the steel has handled everything so far. I've chopped with it, batoned and nearly chopped my thumb off with the razor edge. As good as a knife gets without getting 'super steel' Great fast service too.
