The Casström Safari Mini Hunter is, despite its robust design, a very light and compact knife that is easy to carry. It has an ingenious handle design with a tapered tang that makes the knife very nicely balanced and comfortable in the hand. The design in combination with the materials used makes this a very beautiful but highly resilient piece of kit. Ideal as a small skinner or food prep knife.

Briefly about the versionG10:

  • Ingeniously designed handle in G10 with a polished finish. G10 is a material that is very durable and resistant to moisture and dirt.
  • Sturdy welted sheath in vegetable-tanned European leather with a draining hole.
  • Swedish Stainless steel 14C28N from Sandvik. The blade, following a special Cryogenic hardening routine, holds an edge really well.
  • Full flat grind along with the steel properties makes the knife a great cutter, effective for a variety of tasks whilst remaining easy to sharpen. In combination with an axe or one of our larger knives, you will have everything you need.

About the designer:
Alan Wood has been a professional knifemaker since 1985 and has become the UK’s most emulated craftsman due to his practical and attractive designs. Also well known for his collaboration with survival expert Ray Mears.

About the design:
“The initial concept was to attempt to design a hunter’s knife that produced a tool of minimum dimensions which was still efficient in use. At first, it was for the large proportion of British deerstalkers who hunt for the smaller species such as roe and muntjac. However, it was picked up by others such as the Swedish hunter Jeppe Stridh as an ideal cutting tool for his country’s elk hunters in combination with a forest axe. Further research has shown that it is an adequate and popular compact belt accessory for those on safari, hence the name. Basically, an easily carried tool that can be used to remove the viscera and to perform basic skinning to save a trophy cape when far from the vehicle’s tool kit. “ / Alan Wood
