Morakniv Bushcraft Carbon Black Features
The Bushcraft Black high carbon steel 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) thick blade is extremely sharp, durable, and is hardened to HRC 56-58 to better withstand stress on the blade when batoning. The black coating helps protect against corrosion. For further corrosion resistance, oil carbon blades after each use.
The back of the Buschraft Black blade (spine) has been ground especially for use with a fire starter. You can easily ignite a fire by pulling the spine slowly and heavily along a fire starter (not included) to create sparks that can easily light dry grass, leaves, tinder and even your barbecue grill.
The Bushcraft Black has a scandi grind that prevents the knife from slipping off easily, bites into the surface without getting stuck, is razor sharp and stays sharp. The blade is relatively thin making it easier to carve yet robust enough for batoning and other demanding outdoor activities.
The Morakniv Bushcraft Black handle is an over-molded rubber grip that provides great anti-slip performance and works extremely well in wet and cold conditions. It sits comfortably in your hand giving you greater control, safety, and unbeatable performance.
Morakniv Bushcraft Carbon Black Functions
Batoning is essential for obtaining dry wood inside of logs, or for splitting wood into smaller pieces used for kindling. With its razor sharp edge and robust 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) thick blade, the Bushcraft Black is robust and sharp enough to tackle the toughest of your batoning chores.
The Bushcraft Black is the ultimate carving tool with its razor sharp edge and balanced handling characteristics. It will allow you to precisely prep tinder, create feather sticks, carve shelter stakes, and process wood for various uses like collecting water or creating camp tools.
A feather stick will help the Bushcrafter with fire starting and is essential when starting a fire with damp wood or without tinder. To create the best performing feather stick you need a knife like the Bushcraft Black that has a razor sharp edge, is lightweight, balanced, and easy to use.
By pulling the specially ground spine of the knife slowly and forcefully down against a fire starter (not included), you can easily light dry grass, leaves, paper, bark and even your favorite gas grill or stove.

With a razor-sharp, burly 1/8-inch (3.2 mm) thick carbon steel blade treated with a tungsten DLC anti-corrosive black coating, the Morakniv Bushcraft Carbon Black Knife will be one of the strongest and most dependable knives you will own. Morakniv knives made from high carbon steel achieve high hardness, sharpen easily and are exceptionally tough. High carbon steels are preferred in applications that demand durability and frequent regrinding. The material is harder than stainless steel, allowing it to take a sharper edge. The blade is annealed to 56-58 HRC to better withstand stress on the blade when batoning. The edge angle is therefore slightly greater (approximately 27 degrees) to better withstand rough treatment. The Scandi grind prevents the knife from slipping off easily and bites into surfaces without getting stuck and the 4.3-inch (109 mm) long blade is easy to carve with. The spine of the blade is ridge-ground so that it can be used with a fire starter (not included). The ergonomic handle features a high-friction rubber grip that provides the feeling of control. The included plastic sheath secures the knife in place and features a belt loop to keep it at your side. Net weight (including sheath) 5.7 oz. (162 g). To deter corrosion, clean and wipe carbon blades dry and oil the blade after each use. Limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty. Made in Sweden.

-Super comfy handle.
-I definitely like the sheath better than any other Mora sheath. It feels more secure. I didn't see the need for the sheath with the sharpener and ferro rod attachment. I personally use a wide ranger band around it to hold items like a ferro rod.
-It also nice to not have to square off the spine of the knife to 90 degrees for ferro rod use and it works amazing.
-The coating on the blade isn't like most production blades where it is rough. Only time will tell how it holds ups
-Once again the handle! It doesn't transfer shock to your hands when batoning. Although I personally wouldn't recommend doing all the time, but it can handle the abuse to point. Just keep the wood around wrist thick. Also you can always find dry standing wood about that size. Also get out and practice fire in all types of weather so you know what to for when.
-Not really a con for me, but the blade can and will rust where it is not coated. There are multiple ways to prevent this and one of them is to just use it and oil it when you are done. However in my opinion, an unused knife is a bad knife. Just go out and have fun. Rust and scars build character for the knife and each scar or spot is a story or memory.
I can happily say that my first impressions are that this is a SOLID knife for that capacity.
NO it is NOT a one tool option knife, there are better knives for just a few more dollars that I would not hesitate to take as my one and only knife. But as a secondary small task knife, this knife impresses.
Sharp Scandi Grind - common to this brand, comes ruthlessly sharp out of the box. Almost all other knives I get need some re-profiling or fine tuning, this knife, out of the box, is scary sharp. (a sharp knife is a safe knife by the way, a dull knife tends to be the one that causes injury).
Solid construction - Don't let the 3/4, or 2/3 tang fool you. A small knife doesn't NEED to be full tang unless you plan on beating on it and abusing it. So long as this isn't your only knife, and you don't waste it on hard chores better suited to other knives (like batoning - You can do it, but I wouldn't unless I had to) I can't imagine this knife becoming worn out easily at all. The blade is robust, and the Blued steel will last a long time in the elements with moderate upkeep (more upkeep needed in wet environments).
Ergonomic and feels good in the hand.
Sharp spine throws sparks as good or better on my fero rod than the included key. This same feature also means it's good for shaving wood for fire starting.
Cons - On a knife at this price for what you get, it's hard to find any cons. My score is not relative to other knives, it's relative to the bang for the buck ratio...
But if I had to nit pick:
Full tang would have been better, while I know for a fact that Full tang isn't a "requirement" for a durable long lasting work knife, it's undeniable that it would be an improvement, that would At LEAST give you a bit more confidence.
Final verdict - as a backup/secondary/small chore knife, this knife is a bargain. I would not hesitate to give this to a younger or less experienced person (great gift from dads to sons on their first hiking adventures). At this price, buy 2, one for a gift, and one for your own pack. You won't regret it.
