Just wondering if these had arrived yet.
Oh man, did you come through!! Just in time to go teach at a basic bushcraft class this weekend!
Thank you sir!!
they sell as fast as i get them in stock...amazing quality and truly the perfect woods knife.
Eagerly awaiting mine, just recently ordered it
You can see my posts on my instagram account: Wild mind Bushcraft, here is a photo I posted. Just got my Lars Falt knife today.
One on the way. Looks like a winner.
Looks like a nice knife .
I like the contour of the top of the haft. A hand surgeon I was on Mors Kochanski's winter course with mentioned this concept to fill the hollow in the palm area of the hand.
That swell is part of what drew me to it. It just makes sense.
I wanted to like the Helle Utvaer. But the glass breaker pommel turned me off. This knife reminds me of that one a bit.
I really like smooth rounded pommels. For palm tapping through sticks to get them down to pencil lead size. And to apply pressure for drilling. Knives with sharp or pointed pommels seem to spend more time in my draw than on my belt. Just my preference.
The only knock I can identify is it rusts faster than my 01 and A2 knives. Everything else about the knife is splendid and the rust comes off fast with Flitz polish.
Is the scandi grind not to steep? Too small angle? All preferences of course but still.
Looks good. Actually fantastic.
Does anyone know where it's made?
I had the Helle Utvaer in my hands. The handle is terrible towards the pinky. Cannot understand that mistake.
Did not buy it hence.
It went right to work. In conditions that should make a Swedish Knife feel right at home,
I like the balance of it. It isn't handle heavy like many of these knives. After shaving, and scraping enough to get a fire going. I have to say. It feels good in the hand, gloves or not,
The black liners really bring out the curly birch,
The fit and finish is on par with the best knives I own,
The sheath is also done up quite well. Perhaps not Lois Orford good. But very well executed. The fact that I even mentioned Lois, is testament to how good the sheath really is.
I'm going to cross post this to the Edged Section so folks outside of here can see it.
It's made by Casstrom in Lapland, Sweden.
I jsut got the Casstrom Lars Falt knife and have owned a Helle Utvaer for couple years now. I like the Utvaer and no problems with the pommel the wait it is. Really makes a good wacker.
