Quick Review: Casström Swedish Forest Knife No.14

Not one of the old cutlers of Sweden, but with great experience of outdoors life with hunting and spending time in the woods, Casström decided to start designing their own knives, in close dialogue with users. The company is family owned and is based in Lappland, in the far north of Sweden. Built on the Scandinavian cutler traditions, the knives still stand out with some particular, modern design features and the materials chosen are of quite excellent quality.

The review sample we received for testing here was kindly sent to us by Outdoors Life.
