The Lars Fält Lock Back is a folding knife by Casström, and is a robust, pocket companion to the Lars Fält Bushcraft knife. The design and specification was developed in collaboration with Lars Fält, the renowned Swedish survival expert. The sturdy 7.5cm long, c.3mm thick blade in Böhler N690 stainless steel (hardness 59 HRC) will accomplish most tasks, being especially useful around camp. The Lars Fält Lock Back will provide a competent and reliable knife when out in the field. The full scandi grind gives versatility and is easily maintained, while the handle of carefully selected curly birch gives the knife a traditional Scandinavian look and feel.

About the steel N690: Is a cobalt-enriched steel from Austrian Böhler. N690 shares some properties with other cobalt-enriched steels, e.g. ATS-55 and VG-10. The cobalt increases the wear resistance of the blade thanks to the even crystal structure.
