- ABOUT BASIC 511: 2017 EDITION
- THIS KNIFE IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH A FIRE STARTER
- Morakniv Warranty
The solid finger guard optimizes safety and the larger-shaped handle makes the knife sit even better in your hand. The blade is made of high quality carbon steel a steel quality that also makes the knife easier to re-sharpen so you can use it over and over again. Keep in mind that carbon steel can be affected by moisture and corrosive environments so make it a habit to wipe your knife and oil the blade after using it.
This knife is designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers. Here, our priority is a sharp and durable edge with a good grip, which means that the look of the spine isn’t a high priority feature. You are more than welcome to use any of our knives for your intended needs, but keep in mind that the spine will be “raw” (not grinded) on most craftsmen and construction knives. Therefore, it’s not compatible with a fire starter.

Eight bucks for a knife more than capable of functioning as your primary knife until you can afford a better one. I own at least three and have given countless of them away to folks in need of a sturdy sharp knife.
There are short comings to be sure, like an unfinished spine, and a cheap sheath, but the blade will do the job. It lacks a full tang, but I have never broken one of these. One sits in my "get home kit", behind the seat of my truck, ready willing and able to do my bidding.
My second mora. My first was a Companion, and twice the price is definitely worth it for the rubberized handle and blade profile.
The handle on the Basic is WAY to slick to be safe. I'm going to rough it up w/sandpaper. That said, for $8 it is pretty hard to knock.
