Morakniv of Sweden has been round since 1891 and seemingly since 1892 knife nerds on the Web have been begging for a full-tang design. The Garberg, named for a Swedish city not removed from Mora, is the corporate’s first full-tang blade, which protrudes from the tip of the polyamide plastic deal with for batoning, hammering, or cracking pistachios whereas posting offended feedback on Fb.
The four.25-inch stainless Sandvik 14C28N is tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 58, and the backbone edge is floor sharp, so it throws excellent sparks with a fire-starter. The thick three.2mm blade is a scandi floor with a micro bevel and comes out of the field sharp, however it’s in want of some touch-up work to really shave. It weighs 9.6 ounces–heavy for a Morakniv–and costly for one, too, at $89 with the “multi-mount” sheath or $99 for leather-based.
That is the knife the bushcraft warriors of the Web demanded, and that is the knife they obtained. And it’s an excellent one at that. It deserves a house on the belt of even the much less opinionated outdoorsman, you understand, the sort that really go outdoors. Buy it here.
