Product Description

Let’s have a glance on the key features of this product:-knife-3

  • The knife has a grey colored rubber handle with a blue colored trim.
  • The rubber handle is ergonomically designed and possess a good gripping system which serves various construction purposes.
  • The thickness of the blade is 2.00mm.
  • The length of the blade is 97mm.
  • The total length of the knife is 213mm.
  • The knife is very light-weighted. The overall weight of the knife is 0.1140 kg (without the sheath).
  • Blades are made of superior quality of stainless steel with Sandvik technology which is hardened to 59-60 RC resulting into ultra-fine carbides.
  • The blade is fixed blade type.
  • The code of the item is 11672.
  • The product comes with a combo-sheath which can be used to put two knives in one sheath easily.
  • The knife also has a drain hole at the base.
  • There’s also a clipper that can be tucked onto your belt securely.

 

Pros

The blades are made up of Stainless steel and hence it is corrosion/rust free. You need not take any special care for keeping the blades in shape. They are sharp for a very long period of time and can be re-sharpened very easily. The sheath is made up of plastic, however the distinguishing factor of this sheath is that it is having twin pocket in which you can put two knives at a time and carry it easily. You can tuck the sheath onto your belt and carry away two knives at a time!

Mora of Sweden also gives a one year manufacturer’s warranty, so that you can get the knife repaired and sharpened any time you want (although it may not be required at such an early stage – such is their perfection!).

The rubber handle is double molded and hence provides good gripping and avoids slipping. The knife is made up of ultra-fine carbides instead of regular sized products which results into razor sharp edges giving excellent cutting performance. Perhaps no knife in this world is better than Mora knives – yet at the cheapest rate possible.

Cons

Although the sheath has the feature of twin pockets, it suffers the regular drawback of being poor in quality as it is made up of fused plastic material which is prone to wear and tear with excessive use. Be cautioned while handling the blades as they are razor sharp and slight mishandling can cause hurt and deep cuts. Only if it would have been having a leather sheath, the knife would have perhaps suffered from zero drawbacks.
