The Casstrom Woodsman knife is 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 with a lanyard hole (and leather lanyard), made to suit both large and small hands. It is supplied with a high quality, strong and deep pocket style leather sheath. This version is provided with a matching fire steel and modified 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.

Cracking smaller sized bush craft knife, very easy on the eye and a joy to use. Leather leather is also quality as is the entire fit and finish of the knife. I had never bought anything from natural man but will certainly be back. Communication was brilliant, shipping was rapid and the price was cheaper than I could find anywhere.
Great product and service ....thank you
Bohler k720 is a great entry level carbon steel. It holds and edge and is easy to sharpen. It has similar properties to 01 steel. Care needs in damp conditions keep it oiled and store out of sheath and it will be fine. A little linseed oil on the handle from time to time will help prevent shrinkage of the wood. However having fiber liners helps this. Comes with a nice thick leather sheath. Danglers can be bought separate. It’s small size makes it an ideal choice to accompany an axe to make a very proficient bushcraft tool kit.
