Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Black

Getting ready for the zombie apocalypse.

Got this bad boy from my father-in-law who lives in Mora, Sweden, where these knives are being manufactured.

The knives from Morakniv has been locally manufactured since 1891. Their process of hardening the steel is a well-kept trade secret.

I got my first plain Morakniv with a wooden handle when I was nine years old and I proudly brought it with me to the boyscouts. I got my second Morakniv back in 1999 during my 15 months of service in the Swedish military — it was the versatile hunting knife Mora 2000; a classic knife that was introduced already in the beginning of the 90s.

Two decades later, I still have my Mora 2000 around, sharp as ever, in my toolbox.

The Bushcraft Survival is a little different, though. The blade is carbon steel hardened to HRC 58-60 with a black DLC coating. The coating does protect the knife from rust, but as it is a bit more sensitive, so it will require some love and affection. The blade’s spine has sharp edges to work better with the fire starter.

I’m looking forward to many years of outdoor experiences with the Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Black. Or the zombie apocalypse — whatever comes first!
