A work of art. That’s the first thing that comes to mind when I see the Morakniv Bushcraft Black Carbon Fixed Blade Knife. The design was carefully thought through. It’s complex curves, its beautiful textured design. It’s everything about this entrancing knife.
Yes, the look is intimidating, but that’s what an actual knife should do. It must bear the distinct knife look. The Bushcraft’s Blade bears this look.
The handle beautifully curves to receive your grasp while the blade stands out with its sharp edge. Let me not get ahead of myself. Here’s the Morakniv Bushcraft Black Tactical Knife review.
Features of Morakniv Bushcraft Black Tactical Knife
Carbon Steel Material
Carbon steel is a high-end quality material used in premium products. From automobiles to industrial applications, carbon steel is revered for its hard wearing nature. Having it used on a knife’s blade means the Bushcraft’s tactical knife can cut through any surface without breaking.
Carbon steel is also quite easy to sharpen. The blade comes with a very sharp edge right out of the box but when it loses the edge getting it back in top cutting shape is quite easy.
The carbon steel is certainly a factor that enhances the durability of the Morakniv Bushcraft Black. It makes the blade exceptionally tough, and that’s excellent for anything from carving to batoning. But that wasn’t enough. Morakniv coated the blade with a diamond like coating.
This is a highly corrosion resistant coating that keeps the blade looking perfect no matter what conditions it encounters. With such reinforcements, the Bushcraft is bound to withstand whatever punishment it’s exposed to.
This is where Morakniv went out of their way to give us a versatile knife. This is a tool that does more than a just slice. The spine is built with a ridge ground design. This gives it a texture that allows it to be used as a fire starter.
Simply rub it against the fire starter, and it immediately spits sparks. So if you’re camping, the Morakniv Bushcraft Black should be a handy e to have. Also for tactical applications, having such a versatile knife is always a pleasure.
The handle is ergonomically designed with beautiful curves that allow your hand to wrap around it comfortably. Made of rubber, it’s built to be hospitable to your palm. This over molded rubber gives a high friction grip.
Your hands will securely hold on to the knife thanks to this. And it doesn’t even matter what weather conditions there are. The material is weatherproof, giving you a firm grip at all times.
Finally, to ease portability for you, it comes included with a plastic sheath. It’s a sturdy plastic that gives the sheath a durable build. With the belt loop, you can firmly secure the sheath by your side and have the knife right within your reach at all times.
This sheath weighs just 1.4 ounces so that it won’t compromise on portability. And with both the knife and sheath weighing 5.4 ounces, you shouldn’t feel a strain carrying the Bushcraft around.
