Casstrom Knives Wolverine Sami Style 10cm Knife 3513
This is a very fine piece of handcraft made in the Swedish part of Lapland using the same techniques as the traditional Sami Antler knife, but using a wooden lower sheath instead of antler.
- The Blade is 10cm (4.2 inches) long, 2.1 cm wide and 3mm thick, is Very Sharp and is made from high quality Sandvik 12C27 stainless "surgical" steel (HRC 57). 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 Life-time 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 oiled curly birch and reindeer antler.
- The Sheath is made from vegetable tanned cow hide leather and oiled curly birch with reindeer antler inlay that has been etched with Sami symbols.
This is a very special knife, and although it has been made to be used, it is also a great collectable item
Casstrom Limited is a family owned company started by David Cassini Bäckström, who grew up in the Swedish part of Lapland. He has a solid background in the business, being a third generation entrepreneur trading in handcrafted knives, leather and antlers in his family. David grew up with arctic wilderness on his doorstep and in a culture where survival skills, hunting and knife handling is part of your normal upbringing. He is very delighted to be able to bring part of this heritage and lifestyle to the growing market of individuals inspired by a culture in which a knife is a tool and not a weapon.
The company offers traditional Nordic quality and fine craftsmanship of cutting tools, axes, leather goods and accessories. The products are made mainly in Lapland, spanning across Sweden, Finland and Norway, and the northern parts of these countries. Most products are handcrafted and made using the natural materials of the arctic north such as curly birch, reindeer antler and moose antler, reindeer leather and hand-forged knife blades and tools. These materials are not components of mass produced imports without soul, but part of a tradition of well-renowned Scandinavian knife-making and crafts.
