I think you’ll agree with me when i say…
Morakniv Craftline Pro S is a great all rounder knife. And In this post I’ll review it.
And i’ll cover all the good and bad aspects of this knife in detail. So that you can finally decide if it is worth buying or not.
● Fixed blade utility knife with stainless steel blade
● Ergonomic handle of TPE rubber provides optimum grip
● Hard plastic Combi-Sheath allows for the connection of a second knife and sheath
Overall Look And Feel Of the Knife
The Morakniv Craftline Pro S is full fixed blade knife with an overall length of 8.25 Inches. And a blade length of 3.6 inches and weighs around 4 oz.
The blade of the knife is made up of 3.6 inches long 12C27 hardened Sandvik stainless steel. It is a stainless chromium steel for high quality professional knife applications. It has a very good wear resistance. And fairly well corrosion or rust resistant properties.
It allows the blade to hold a sharp edge for a longer period of time and withstand higher loads. The composition of the blade is ideal for working in marine, fishing, outdoor and construction applications. Where knives see hard use and are commonly exposed to dirt and moisture.
There is a satin finish on the blade which helps in resisting corrosion. It is the least expensive finish on the knife market. But provides less corrosion resistance than the polished finish or the mirror finish. The blade has a Scandinavian grind as there is no secondary bevel.
The scandinavian grind is liked by many people in the bushcrafting community because of the long flat angles. It excels when it comes to detailed woodwork or crafting. You have a high degree of control over the depth of a cut as the scandi will begin to shave wood at a very low angle.
It is also easier to sharpen and you can achieve a finer edge. The blade features a straight clip point shape. The spine of the blade is raw or not grinded and thus is not compatible with a fire starter out of the box. The knife is designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers.
Priority is given to the sharpness and durability of the edge with a good grip. Which means that the look of the spine isn’t a high priority feature. However, you can modify your knife to have a 90 degree angle spine yourself. And use it with fire starter to light a fire during your camp trips.
The handle of the knife is made of TPE rubber on a rat tail tang. TPE stands for thermoplastic elastomer. TPE is used for the grippiness and ability of the rubber to absorb any shock. And the rubber also means the handle doesn’t conduct the cold.
So you can work outdoors without problem, whatever the season. The handle measures about 4.65 inches so it is a fairly large handle for almost all hand types. And even with the gloves on you won’t find any issues handing the knife.
There is a slight palmswell giving it an ergonomic and more comfortable grip. It’s just enough, without being too much. I never once had the blade turn, slip, or jerk unexpectedly thanks to the well designed handle.
Talking about slipping. There’s also a finger guard on both ends which provides additional safety and prevents any accidents.
The sheath is made up of propylene which is a durable plastic. It has an attached belt clip and it connects easily to backpacks or belts. You can also use a belt dangler to attach it to your belt that way it will have some movement.
There’s a hook at the front and button tab at the back which helps you to attach it to your other Mora and pair them together or vice versa. It does include a drain hole at the bottom. So if you find yourself out in the rainy weather or wet environment, you don’t have to worry about your sheath filling up with water.
The sheath works great, and always kept my blade in place even while hiking and backpacking. It clips easy to just about any belt or strap and stays in place. It’s a very basic sheath but a nice one.
