Morakniv Black Bushcraft Knife Product Review

The Bushcraft Black survival knife by Morakniv has a high carbon steel blade with a Rockwell hardness of 56-58.

The blade has a thickness of 3.2mm, which offers extreme sharpness and durability, and can withstand an impressive amount of stress when repeatedly struck.

It includes a Tungsten Carbon Carbide black coating that protects against corrosion and ensures use in the harshest conditions. Morakniv recommends oiling carbon blades after each use to improve overall corrosion resistance.

It is an excellent choice that will perform when batoning, carving, and fire starting. Like all bushcraft knives, it can be used as a weapon to protect yourself and any other people present.

With the knife comes a plastic sheath with a belt loop that keeps the blade securely on your side, to prepare you for use at any given moment.

The black color of the sheath makes it blend with your survival clothing, not bringing unwanted attention and threats to your life.

However, the sheath’s size is flawed as it can wear out the knife’s handle and hinder its overall performance. Some people have gone as far as melting the sheath to make it more compatible with the handle.

On the market at a budget-friendly price, you can acquire this high-quality knife without stretching your wallet.
