  1. A small but competent knife from Casström, design by renowned English custom knife maker Alan Wood known for his hand made Bushcraft and Deer Stalking knives.

    A compact hunting knife featuring a 6cm stainless steel blade with a hollow grind. The blade is made using a full‐tang construction, features a tapered tang and is made in 12c27 Swedish Stainless steel (HRC 59).

    The handle tapered tang and shape of the handle makes the knife very nicely balanced and comfortable.  The stabilized curly birch handle is tough, waterproof and low maintenance.

    Comes with a sturdy leather sheath. The design in combination with the materials used makes this a very beautiful but highly resilient piece of kit. Ideal as a small skinner for small deer and as a small belt knife for safari hunters.

    Due to Royal Mail's new prohibited knife policy which came into force with effect from 1st November 2019 we will no longer be able to use them to ship bladed items. As a result, we now need to use courier deliveries and there is a significant increase in cost to us for posting. A £3.50 post surcharge is now made on any bladed purchase. If you purchase a multiple number in one transaction only 1 surcharge is made.

    YOU MUST BE OVER 18 TO PURCHASE A KNIFE. A CHECK WILL BE MADE, ON YOUR AGE, THROUGH A BASIC VOTERS ROLL SEARCH AND IN THE EVENT WE ARE UNABLE TO FIND YOU REGISTERED, WE WILL EMAIL AND ASK FOR COPY PROOF OF AGE PRIOR TO DISPATCH OF THIS ITEM.

  4. Sandvik 12C27 is a very popular stainless steel for Scandinavian knives due to its good combination of good edge performance (stability and ability to take an edge), high hardness and good corrosion resistance. Blade re-sharpening is easy and edge stability in terms of microchipping and edge folding or rolling is also good.

    Steel Analysis: C 0.60%, Si 0.40%, Mn 0.40%, P(max) 0.025%, S(max) 0.01%, Cr 13.5%

    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 and muntjac. However, it was picked up by others such as the Swedish hunter Jeppe Stridh as an ideal cutting tool for his country’s elk 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. Basically, an easily carried tool that can be used to remove the viscera and to perform basic skinning to save a trophy cape when far from the vehicle’s tool kit. " / Alan Wood
