    Hi John - we sell these in the gun shop and although it's a good price, I find the handle shape very uncomfortable. I know I'm in the minority as a few have been sold, so it's a very personal thing. Kind regards, Eddie.

    Nice looking knife (the sheath, not so much)

    The company is situated in Lycksele, Sweden but that doesn't equates to that they are made in Sweden

    Ordered a Casstrom knife once, when it arrived it looked like it had been used to chop nails.. it was practically serrated!! Sent it back and have avoided them ever since..

    They are made in Spain, according to the company.

    Someone must have put a great deal of effort into making the handle profile look so god damn awful!

    Hopefully its with ergonomics to the fore rather than simply finding an alternative presentation of what is now a very 'tired' and frankly unimaginative blade profile and grind.

    tired and unimaginative...hmm...not very function-based properties, that....but to each, his own

    I like it when companies are honest with the origins of the products.

    Well, I have been looking at the no.10 for a long while and I like it, I tried one that a friend has, I know the handle is a bit marmite, but I would be interested to hear from some one that actually has owned one, and how the blade holds up.
