This Morakniv Robust is the handicraft knife that has managed to persuade the survival enthusiast to take it out into the forest. Designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers, it has the combination of the extra thick blade made of carefully selected carbon steel and the shock resistant handle that makes it so attractive. As the name suggests, this is simply a really robust knife that suits most tasks; for building, in the tool room, in the boathouse, on the motorbike, in your rucksack or on a hike. It has a rubber handle so it’s easy to use even in cold and damp environments. Besides, the ergonomic, TPE rubber handle gives optimal friction, while its barrel shape means the knife always sits comfortably in your hand. Remember that carbon steel can be affected by moisture and corrosive environments. So make it a habit to wipe the knife and oil the blade after usage. However, the spine will be “raw” (not ground) on most craftsmen and construction knives. Thus, it’s not compatible with a fire starter.
