TheCasstrom Safari, designed by Alan Wood 

This is a small and very competent knife designed by English knife maker Alan Wood and made by Casström.

Alan Wood has been a professional knifemaker since 1985 and has become the UK’s most emulated craftsman due to his practical and attractive designs. Alan Wood is well known for his collaboration with survival expert, Ray Mears.

The Casstrom Safari is a compact hunting / bushcraft knife featuring a 6cm stainless steel blade with a flat grind. The blade is made using a full‐tang construction from 12c27 Swedish stainless steel (HRC 59).

The handle-tapered tang and overall shape makes for a very nicely balanced and comfortable knife.  The G10 handle is tough, water resistant and low maintenance. The knife comes with a high quality leather sheath.

This a very beautiful and highly resilient piece of kit - an ideal bushcraft knife, suitable for skinning small game, camping, carving, food preparation and lot's of other uses.

About the design:

“The initial concept was to attempt to design a hunter’s knife that produced a tool of minimum dimensions which was still efficient in use. At first it was for the large proportion of British deerstalkers who hunt for the smaller species such as roe andmuntjac. However, it was picked up by others such as the Swedish hunterJeppe Stridh as an ideal cutting tool for his country’s moose hunters in combination with a forest axe. Further research has shown that it is an adequate and popular compact belt accessory for those on safari, hence the name. ........ “ / Alan Wood
