    Lightbulb New Small Mora Knife - Morakniv Eldris

    Has anyone heard the news? Frosts Mora has recently announced a new knife with a very small blade:
    • Fixed Blade
    • Full Tang
    • 58mm (2.2") long



    This could be a handy little number, I'm looking forward to see how it feels in the hand, I love using small but useful blades and more often that not you don't need a huge bowie knife to get the job done!

    More details on the new knife here:

    and here:

    Would love to know your thoughts

    These actually look really handy. I'd like to see one in the flesh.

    The proportions just don't seem ideal to me
    Maybe I'm looking at the blade, from a wood carving perspective.
    Doesn't have the fitness of the 106 (my favourite mass produced carving knife) or even the120.
    Too short for splitting firewood. So not a knife I'm immediately drawn to, although that could change once I handle it.☺

    It's certainly not a knife for splitting firewood! But then neither is a Svord Peasant, Opinel or other small handy knives. It's for those quick cutting tasks. I'm actually intrigued as to how it might handle in terms of carving & whittling, I'm always interested in trying smaller knives for that sort of thing.

    If you think about is the power & control is toward the base of the blade nearest the handle, for the majority of tasks your using the first inch of the blade even if you might be wielding a 4" knife.

    Looks like a great little neck knife. Might have to get one
    Do you think they'll bring out a carbon steel version?

    95% of my knife use in the woods consist of cutting open the bag of hot dogs, and making spits for them. This knife would be perfect for that. But I think the 10-15 other knives I own will have to make do, but if I see this onbe for sale somewhere, I will probably be overcome by the shiny kit syndrome and get myself one :-)

    Yeah, I really like the look of that.
    I too am someone who prefers smaller knives. Personally, I have no need for a big knife - preferring to use a saw for cutting wood.
    The only thing that makes me hesitate is the fact that it's fixed blade. When it comes to small knives I prefer a folder so I don't have to think about legal issues (just about all my outdoor activities take place on public land - however remote and 'hidden' I may be). A folder causes no problems to me since, as FF said, most of my knife-use tasks revolve around opening packets or simple whittling tasks that a folder copes with admirably.
    But I love the look of this little knife and I could see a use for it.
