The latest creation from the venerable Mora of Sweden is something a little unusual, at least for the modern knife market. Meet the Morakniv Wood Splitting Knife, a bladed implement designed for – would you believe it – splitting wood.
Mora calls this one a “knife,” but to us the term “bladed implement” is probably closer to the mark. The Wood Splitting Knife’s edge is 4.5 inches long, running straight for that entire length, with no tip at all due to its very specific design. The blade made from the company’s preferred stainless, 12C27N; this one falls well short of super steels in terms of performance, of course, but compares favorable to other steels in its class: it’s amiable on the stones and you’d have to work hard to get it to rust. And given that the Wood Splitting Knife is made to do one specific task, maintenance should be both straightforward and periodic.
It is an interesting one for sure. Anyone have any experience with this tool?View Linked Article
