The coil shape in the heart of the knife is strongly related to the heritage of Morakniv. The knife with the red coil-shaped handle is probably as well known as the famous Dala horse in Sweden.
The rhombus pattern is a traditional pattern that is present in many variations in Mora and the region of Dalarna. In the handle, the pattern provides a significantly improved grip. Besides its high functionality, it also pays a tribute to their region and history.
The outer shell of the handle is made of TPE, a rubbery polymer that provides a firm and secure grip.
The rear part of the handle has a hole for fastening a Lanyard, rope or other gadgets according to preference.
The handle has a built-in click lock between the sheath and handle to ensure that the knife stays in place when worn around the neck.
The core of the handle, visible in the barrel shape, is made of polypropylene. It is a polymer that makes the knife and the handle very rugged.
The symmetrical handle allows flexible use of the knife with a two-way fit in the sheath. The drop design on the back is big enough to keep the knife steady in your hand.
The knife is ground with a scandi grind which makes it easy to keep sharp.
The blade has a semi-matte finish appreciated among the outdoor community.
The blade is 2,5 mm thick and 108 mm long. It is made of high quality Swedish stainless steel (12C27) that is treated to optimal blade finish in their own factory.
The spine of the blade is ground to make the edge perfect for use with a fire starter. This means that you do not need to use the edge of the blade when starting your fire, which makes your knife stay sharp for longer.
The profile grind adds that extra touch to the blade. This is a very appreciated detail of Morakniv, that first appeared on their knives in the early 90s.
The profile grind makes the knife perfect for tasks that require precision.
Polypropylene Sheath Features
The two crossed arrows with the crown is the county crest of the Swedish province Dalarna. They have placed the Morakniv edition of the crest on the sheath. They've added their founding year 1891, and the result is a tribute to the region as well as to their heritage.
As with the knife, the symmetry of the sheath is of big importance, since it allows you to place the knife in the sheath from both sides. This also makes the knife and the sheath compatible for both left and right hand use.
The sheath is made of polypropylene, a polymer that makes it rugged, and thereby provides an excellent protection of the knife.
The sheath is strongly inspired by sheaths first made in the beginning of the 1900s. Sheaths that today can be found on the classic line of knifes, and that looks almost the same as they did back then. The heart shaped cavities on the sheath, the symmetrical appearance and the triangle shaped tip is a trademark of a classic Morakniv sheath.
Details on the belt loop are made from leather. This natural material is probably the best choice when it comes to durability in details like these, that are put to repeated wear and tear.
The belt loop consist of a collar made of PP and a leather strap that fits around your belt. The belt loop can be attached or detached from the sheath, and the slim fit with the click lock keeps your knife safe in place.
