The ultimate version with both a firestriker steel and a double-sided diamond sharpener complete with integrated pockets. Allows you to always carry everything that you need. A knife made in the Arctic north of Swedish Lapland with a focus on functionality combined with traditional Nordic design.
The Blade is 10cm (4.2 inches) long, 2.4 cm (0,95 inches) wide and 3mm (0.125 inches) thick, is Very Sharp and is made from high quality Sandvik 12C27 stainless "surgical" steel (HRC 57-58) sharpened with a flat Scandinavian grind. The "spine" of the blade has slightly sharpened edges to make it suitable for use when striking a firestriker steel.
The blade extends with an internal tang that stretches approx 2.5" into the handle and is secured very firmly so that it wont come loose. In fact Karesuando offers a Lifetime 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 curly birch stained with a golden red/brown colour and also has a reindeer antler spacer.
The Sheath is side stitched and made from Swedish vegetable tanned cow hide leather. It has an inserted plastic sheath liner. It also features a loop for the firestriker steel and a pocket for the diamond sharpener.
The firestriker steel is and "army" size (9.5mm in diameter) ferrocerium stick with a reindeer antler handle.
The Sharpener is double sided with a coarse and a fine side. The great benefit of a diamond sharpener compared with conventional honing stone is that it can be used dry without water or other lubricant, it maintains its flat surface throughout its lifetime and it reduces the grinding time substantially.
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.
