Well, if you have at handy a drill press and if you are using a tough wood block, you can use them to drill out the slot of the knife tang. This is possible by making lots of close holes and after that you have to cut the web which is between them. When you will finally get part of a large slot for fixing the knife tang within it, you will have to pour some epoxy within that hole, but don’t use too much because it will ruin everything. After that you must filter the support on the knife, and squeeze the tang in to the hole of the block. For this to be easy you must use a bar or a pipe clamp and in case that you don’t have such things at handy it works even with rubber bands, but they must be large. These things must be used to press the entire mass at once, and an end of the bar or of the clamp must be at the end of the block and the other one must be in your area, so you can handle them easier.

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

  • 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 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.

Morakniv Allround Multi-Purpose Fixed Blade Knife with Sandvik Carbon Steel Blade 4.0 Inch

December 14, 2013

Morakniv is extremely well-known Swedish producer of knives going back to 1891 and has bagged a lot of appreciation for its wide range of products for different uses and high built quality which leads to durability. In this article, we’ll review the Morakniv Allround Multi-Purpose Fixed Blade Knife with Sandvik Carbon Steel Blade and see if the Swedish are successful in carrying on their reputation or this time it’s going to be different. Let’s have a look at some of the key features of the knife first.

  • It is a fixed blade knifeknief-1
  • It has been equipped with Sandvik Carbon Steel blade – Sandvik steel is widely regarded as one of the best ones out there
  • It comes with a plastic sheath belt clip for extra protection
  • Thickness of blade: 0.25cm
  • Length of blade: 4 inch whereas total length of the knife is 9 inches
  • It weighs around 123g
  • Rubber grips (cushioned) with finger guards for good grip and easy use
  • Covered by Morakniv’s 1-year warranty

Pros

The design of the knife is nothing special or jaw-dropping but it looks pretty simple and decent which might work for many people out there. The nice handle with cushioned rubber grips and finger guards allow for easy and comfortable grip, something you’ll obviously appreciate because if you can’t get a good grip on the knife then you won’t be able to use it well. Moving to its performance, as with most of the Mora knives this one is no different (which is good) and performs really well for almost every other use you can think of. Users have tried to test its durability and strong built by hammering it right into the trees, cutting some small trees and carving some trees as well but 99.9% of those users were happy with the results – the knife gave a good fight and laughed back at them as it never breaks that easily. You sharp or regrind it and it will be back shining without any compromise on its durability.

Mora Knives colors

It is strong because of the Sandvik carbon steel blade which is surely the best out of the bests. It’s not very heavy to carry around and the plastic sheath provides some extra protection so you don’t cut or hurt yourself accidentally. At around $10-$12 it is said to be a great contender for many knives that are priced at $20-$25 and the 1-year manufacturer’s warranty is surely welcome but you might not be able to use the warranty because it might never reach that point.

Cons

One of the bad things (also a good one) is its design which might be too simplistic for some people, especially for those who like something that looks deadly and killer and some users are not really happy that it feels a bit cheap in your hand, not something premium. Moreover, some users aren’t happy with the fact that the back of the blade is just unfinished or incomplete and the sheath doesn’t fit any standard belt. Additionally, carbon steel knives are prone to rusting; therefore it’s recommended that you coat the blade with patina along with apple cider vinegar or some other oil type. However, none of those sounds like they’re deal breakers because for $10-$12 this knife does a great job and proves worthy of your money.

Conclusion

When it comes to the best knives for less than $20 this one surely wins the race even with those knives that will cost you $20. It’s not a perfect knife and has its flaws which are not something to be worried about considering the very reasonable price of the knife. Therefore, it should be definitely tried!

Mora of Sweden Clipper 840 Carbon Steel Knife in Mora of Sweden known to be one the best makers of knives in the world and this time it’s back with Clipper 840 Carbon steel knife. In this article we’ll review the knife and see if the Swedish did their fine work with this knife as well or it’s a different story this time. However, in the end it’s up to you to decide whether 840 will be great for the uses (or abuses to say) you have planned for it. Let’s glance upon its key features.

 

 

Key Features of the Mora of Sweden Clipper 840 Carbon Steel Knife

  • Total length of the knife: 8.50 inches

Amazon Image

Pros

Nice and simple design (might not suite some folks out there) but nothing special. The rubber handle with clipper patterns allow for sturdy grip and it feels comfortable in the hands, so it’s easy to use it as we all know that gripping issues can make it difficult to use a knife to its full potential. Moving on to the blade, it seems to perform quite well thanks to the high carbon steel and thickness of 0.8” which makes it stronger and durable. Many users are happy with the performance of the blade and once you regrind it after a heavy usage its back with more shine and razor sharpness. Another good thing is that 840 is not a hefty knife (at 5 oz.) to carry around and thus makes it a good choice for day-to-day usage, but it shouldn’t be heavy anyways considering the fact that it’s a pretty basic knife.

The plastic sheath you get helps you to get some extra protection for the knife as well as yourself because you never know when an accident happens. Lastly, the price tag on 840 makes it a really good choice for knife users and lovers out there. You can grab it for $15-$16 while some online stores are offering it for $10-$12 as well.

Cons

Let’s talk about some bad things about theMora of Sweden Clipper 840 Carbon Steel Knife. The design is a bit too simple and there’s nothing killer or sexy about the knife. The handle looks solid and feels comfortable but it’s feels a bit cheaper when it’s in your hands. Moreover, some users have also complained that the blade can be easily bent and also get rusted in a short period of time which can be a deal breaker but the problem has not been faced by majority of the users and it seems that it depends upon the usage of the knife. However, the material does rusts easily so you’ll have to take some extra care there. Lastly, the sheath fit seems to be a bit loose to some users and that will be all from the ‘cons’ department.

 

Conclusion

Overall, the Mora of Sweden Clipper 840 Carbon Steel Knife seems to perform quite well and despite of its flaws it has been more liked than hated and the credit most probably goes to the low price tag because you can find knives for $20-$25 that might not be able to outperform Mora 840. However, whether this knife is for you or not entirely depends upon you but it is recommended that you do give it a try.

Mora knife steel

Mora Knives colors

Mora knife steel blades are built to last and they are snugly fitted with ergonomic handles for a secure grip. These blades provide better usage in outdoor life especially when camping or hiking. They are hard enough to withstand any extra pressure when clearing the bushes, skinning the food or when digging holes. It is a breeze holding the handles that allow optimum usage of the cutlery with great comfort to avoid stress and injury. Let’s look at more specifics that make the blade unique especially when combined with innovative unbreakable handles.

Mora Knives

Workplace designs suited for every user

Normally, the length, thickness and durability of the blades are what make them outstanding for every job. Carbon steel is a tough metal that has a lot of benefits. Its stainless nature makes the survival tools to be of great use in outdoor living. Steel is also tough and one can sharpen the knife to get a fully pointed edge.

Full tang designs harden the knives

Although there are some Swedish cutlery that are designed with half tang, most come with full tang to extend the life of the handles. Full tang designs are better suited for heavy duty tasks such as chopping firewood and digging holes on the wilderness without breaking the handle. The unique capability is achieved because the steel blades extend deep on to the handles. This makes the handles to be extra strong in order to absorb the excessive pressure when doing the tasks. Another advantage is fastening of the handles on the tang – there is no risk of it falling off since there is wider surface area.

Great companion in the wilderness

With Mora knife steel blades and the comfortable handles, one can rest assured that there is no risk of surviving in the wilderness and deep woods.
