Casström's No.10 Swedish Forest Knife is a full tang, all around, full service bushcraft, camping, hunting and survival knife that features a mid-sized, contoured ergonomic handle, and a 4" (103mm) blade that's available in either stainless or carbon steel. The Firesteel Combo model adds a matching firesteel and firesteel loop in the accompanying sheath for carrying the firesteel along with your knife.
Available handle materials include oak, micarta, or oiled curly birch.
Available steels are either Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel which provides a unique combination of excellent edge performance (stability and ability to take an edge), high hardness, and very good corrosion resistance. Casström adds a cryogenic treatment cycle at subzero temperatures with the use of liquid nitrogen after the blade quenching to make their blades harder and improve the steel structure.
Also available is Uddeholm Sleipner carbon tool steel that when combined with Casstrom's cryo quench process, allows the knife to keep a sharp and durable edge for longer, along with better edge retention during very hard use without chipping, while still being relatively easy to sharpen. Due to the 8% chromium content, it will resist corrosion to some degree compared to regular carbon steel (around 0.5% Cr) but not as well as stainless steel (13% Cr). Therefore, the blade should be dried after use and protected with oil or wax when stored in a high-humidity environment.
All firesteel combo N0.10 SFK knives feature a Scandinavian ground blade which provides a keen edge suitable for utility purposes, processing and shaping wood, food prep, and other general outdoor tasks, whilst being easily sharpened in the field.
All No.10 SFK knives come with a fully welted, veg tanned sheath with a drain hole and firesteel loop, a Army model firesteel, and a 25 year warranty.
