Nessmuk Knife Review - Page 2

by Rob Schwiesow

The first thing I did was took it to the sand paper and strop to get a mirrored convex edge. The 3V steel took a hair-popping edge with little trouble.

I presented the Koster Nessmuk with challenge after challenge. I split up to 3 inch diameter wood. I shaved bark for tinder. I cut birch bark to remove sheets for shelter shingles. I pointed stakes and digging sticks. The Koster Nessmuk performed beautifully through all these harder chores. The 3V steel makes it possible to put a lot of force behind a very thin edge, and not have any chipping. The edge retention of the 3V steel was outstanding, as expected. A couple swipes on the strop and I was back to hair-popping.
