Casstrom No.3 Dangler
The Casstrom No.3 Dangler is an accessory to let your knife hang further down from the waist, dangle freely so that you can move easily and make handling on and off the belt smoother. The specially designed D-ring can also be used for other tasks.
Many of our customers have requested an extended belt loop, a "dangler" so that the knife can be easily accessed even when you have a jacket on or a large backpack with a hip belt. With a Dangler it also becomes easy to sit down without the knife getting in the way. When the pouch or sheath hangs it can be bent at the height of the hip joint which allows the knife to smoothly follow your lags movement if you anchor it to the - you can run, climb and bend almost without noticing the knife.
We have also designed the D-ring as a carabiner and thus opened up many new features and applications. You can easily take the knife off without having to open your belt, you can easily move the knife to your backpack for example, or just quickly take it off if you are approaching a populated area. The D-ring is made of sturdy 8mm thick aluminum and tested up to a 450kg breaking load which means that you can use it for lots of different purposes, for example to hang up the equipment, pull an animal or anchor a dog leash to your waist.
The belt loop is made of sturdy 3mm thick vegetable tanned cowhide available in Cognac Brown or Black. The loop can take belts with a width up to 6cm. The Dangler's D-ring will take knife sheaths with a belt loop up to 34mm wide.

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
About the steel:
Sandvik 12C27 is a very popular stainless steel for Scandinavian knives due to its good combination of good edge performance (stability and ability to take an edge), high hardness and good corrosion resistance. Blade re-sharpening is easy and edge stability in terms of microchipping and edge folding or rolling is also good.
