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.

Anyways, SUPERB knife!Buy if you don't already have one
The blade comes sharp and is thick enough to be very durable. The tang goes all the way to the hilt and it's 3/4 of an inch wide. The back of the blade's edges are squared so you can use it with a ferro-rod. I've tried it and it works.
The sheath is hard durable plastic with a rotating belt clip that soft locks into position. There's also a round hole and slot like you see on the back of wall-mounted clocks on the side of the clip. The knife soft locks into the sheath. It's pretty well designed so even upside-down the knife won't fall out even if you shake it around a lot. I'm sure if you really tried enough force it would fall out but under normal use I think that's very unlikely.
If you're looking for a high quality camping knife where the price doesn't make you reluctant to use it hard, I don't think you can go wrong with this knife.
A comparable knife is the Gerber BG Ultimate. That knife is bulletproof and comes with a very well-designed sheath that folds out into a sharpening platform and holds a ferro-rod. The ergonomics are better on this knife but the BG beats it in durability and sheath features.
I will start with the idea of striking a firesteel with these knives. I have seen many articles and videos that explain that to strike a firesteel with most Mora knives you need to take a file to the back edge to create a sharper 90 degree corner on the back of the blade. I watched a video that showed someone doing that and then after striking a firesteel a few times it would no longer work. He contacted Mora and sent them his knife for inspection. They replied and told him that the process for making the standard knives is to laminate a very hard carbon steel blade in the center with two less hard carbon steel layers on the outside. This makes the edge of the blade very hard but the outside less prone to rust. However, this also means the outside edges are not as hard for striking a firesteel so you can end up with marks and grooves in your back edge of the knife. That makes it difficult to use any standard Mora knife to strike a firesteel long-term, even if you can get it to work temporarily.
Enter the Bushcraft Black. This knife appears to be one solid, monolithic, unlaminated high carbon steel blade. This explains why it requires the black coating since the steel is likely far more prone to rust. However, it also explains why it can come with a razor sharp 90 degree spine that has zero difficulty throwing sparks. On a few other notes, the blade itself is both taller and longer than the companion, so it is just a more hefty knife overall. Yeah, I know it's not full tang, we all know that, but this is a serious tool and for the right task it is an impressive and reliable asset. Good luck and keep 'em sharp.
