A hardy faithful servant Basic 546 is cast in the same shape as our ageless classic the 511. The only difference is that the blade is made of stainless steel, which keeps the knife sharper for longer and doesn’t need so much maintenance. Smooth and simple! About Basic 546 Stainless steel is the best choice when working outdoors. What’s more, the blade has a perfect balance between length and breadth, giving you a better user experience. The steel has been carefully selected and treated according to our secret recipe, in our factory in Mora. The solid finger guard optimizes safety and the new, larger-shaped handle makes the knife sit even better in your hand. This knife is not compatible with a fire starter This knife is designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers. Here, our priority is a sharp and durable edge with a good grip, which means that the look of the spine isn’t a high priority feature. You are more than welcome to use any of our knives for your intended needs, but keep in mind that the spine will be “raw” (not grinded) on most craftsmen and construction knives. Therefore, it’s not compatible with a fire starter.
