Kasperi x Roselli The Explorer Set: Whitetail Fold top w/ custom Roselli Knife, Axe, and Firesteel
Kasperi x Roselli "The Explorer set": Whitetail Fold top w/ custom Roselli Heimo knife, Roselli Axe and Firesteel
We've collaborated with Roselli for a once in a lifetime set.
The world is full of expendable products that create no special connections with their owners. The things we produce should last a lifetime and create wonderful memories. Kasperi and Roselli - therefore came together to create a very limited edition “The explorer set” that will prepare you for life off the beaten path.
Earlier this year we found out that we shared the same values with Roselli about consuming less and buying better. We started the conversations with Roselli - a bespoke Finnish manufacturer of knives and axes for hunting, fishing, cooking, and outdoor life. We wanted to explore whether we could combine our products and develop something unique together.
All products we sell at Roselli and Kasperi are unique and exclusive in their own way, but from time to time products are designed that are only produced in a limited edition or as a special edition. “The explorer set” is one of those products and is only produced in a super limited edition, be quick to get your's before it runs out.
“The explorer set” includes:
Kasperi Fold Top-backpack from whitetail deer leather w/ two utility straps for attaching the axe.
Roselli Heimo 4" knife, stained curly birch handle, and Kasperi custom made knife sheath.
Roselli axe, short, stained curly birch handle and Kasperi custom made axe sheath.
Roselli firesteel, stained curly birch handle, and Kasperi custom made sheath.

Its ergonomics are designed to keep it comfortable even after full days of carrying heavier loads, and in addition, the bag has six external attachment points for your Roselli gear.
The Fold Top included in “The explorer set” might just be the last backpack you’ll ever need. It’s made from premium ecological whitetail leather (learn more here) custom-developed for Kasperi. Using the whitetail also makes use of a material that would otherwise be doomed for waste.

Roselli's traditional Axe with a shorter handle is an effective wood cutting tool, whether used while camping or at the summer cottage. The wide blade angle prevents the axe from getting stuck, and in addition to woodcutting, it can be used for whittling as well. This special edition comes with a Kasperi custom made Cognac-brown German SOHRE Tanneries vegetable-tanned leather sheath to protect the edge. With the two supplied Kasperi utility straps, you can attach the axe to Kasperi Fold Top-backpack. The axe handle is made from curly birch and is stained and coated with linseed oil to ensure a firm grip, even when wet.

Roselli firesteel, stained curly birch handle
In “The explorer set” we’ve also included a custom firesteel. A firesteel is a tool with which you can create sparks. It comes incredibly handy when you want to start a fire, and is, therefore, a self-evident tool to carry with you. The firesteel is used with the backside of the knife to strike sparks on a prepared “primer” tinder - for example, dry birch bark that is rasped with a knife to create a flammable kindling. Once you get the kindling ignited, it is gradually fed with larger sticks until you have a campfire. The Roselli firesteel attaches to the Kasperi custom made knife sheath made of German SOHRE Tanneries Cognac-brown vegetable-tanned leather.
