Casstrom Knives Beaver Damask (rose) Knife 3500R
This is an extremely good knife and a fine piece of handcraft made in the arctic north of Sweden.
- The Blade is 10cm (4.2 inches) long, 2.1 cm (0.82 inches) wide and 3mm (0.125 inches) thick, is Very Sharp and is made from high quality Damscus Steel (HRC 58) produced by Damasteel AB. It has been sharpened with a flat Scandinavian grind and a slight secondary grind to preserve the damascus pattern. The Damascus steel is made using RWL34 and PMC27 (both stainless RSP powder steels) that have been laminated in over 100 layers and then torsion twisted and shaped. The pattern is finally etched when exposing the blade to acid - something that can be reqired after sharpeneing to keep the pattern showing clearly. This blade holds an exellent edge. 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, a reindeer antler spacer and has a brass finger guard.
- The Sheath is handmade, welted and stitched together from thick cow hide leather in a slick and functional design with a belt loop at the back.
The steels used in this knife blade are superior knife steels in not just appearance but also fracture strength. Produced using rapid solidification powder (RSP) Technology, which gives a much more evenly distributed solidification structure than a conventionally produced steel giving them much higher fracture strengths compared to conventional steels.
This knife is suited to shooting sport, deer stalking, hunting and forest activities. It is suitable for carving and could be used in all kinds of outdoor activities such as survival, bushcraft and camping.
This is a very special knife that makes an unusual gift that can be used for outdoor activities and work or as a nice collectable item to enjoy in itself. It is quite simply an exellent knife and a stunning piece of equipment that really should be part of every sportsmans collection of tools.
