Made of Vanax steel from Uddeholm, DICEROX's Lagertha bushcraft and survival knife doubles as a camping axe and camping food prep knife.
- Made of Vanax—one of the strongest steels on the planet—great edge-retention and anti-corrosion properties.
- Expensive, but well made.
It's hard to trust a new brand in a segment where there are so many players, but I loved the way that Lagertha (Dicerox calls their knives after strong women) looked. It takes inspiration from the old Viking Seax knife design, but comes made from Vanax steel, which is rare.
Works well for both batoning wood and feather-sticking and most camp and survival projects. A hunter friend even used it to clean and part-out a moose... and it was still sharp when he returned it.
The old design, coupled with the wooden handles (oak) and old-style leather sheath make this a rather unique collectors item—and each knife has its own serial number. Definitenly a knife to consider for people who want one knife for many purposes that will last a lifetime (like the guarantee on the blade).
I've been using camping and hunting knives for years.
