This knife has a blade made using one of the world’s best knife steels - RWL 34 from Damasteel of Sweden.
Typical Karesuando knives are hardened to 57-58 HRC which is generally considered an optimal hardness balancing ductility and brittleness of a high quality steel. RWL 34 is a premium powder steel with an evenly distributed solidification structure, increasing fracture strength, allowing tempering to a higher hardness (HRC 60-62) without encountering the typical issues of brittleness or risk for fractures.
By using this high performance premium steel, Karesuando has produced a very refined and virtually unbreakable knife for the really fussy knife buyer that will hold its edge for longer.
This knife is brilliant for hunting, fishing and forest activities. It is also suitable for carving and could be used in all kinds of outdoor activities such as survival exercises, bushcraft and camping.
