Morakniv knife blade blanks are an excellent choice for anybody wishing to make their own custom knife. The Morakniv 120 Wood Carving knife blade blank features a 2.3-inch laminated carbon steel blade which is well-known and appreciated among wood carvers in Sweden. It has a thin, tapered laminated steel blade which is constructed around a core made with high carbon steel surrounded by a softer alloyed steel layer. As a result of this lamination, a very high edge hardne6ss (Rc 61-62) can be achieved for superior edge retention while at the same time having a blade that is very tough. Morakniv has been manufacturing the highest-quality knives in Mora, Sweden since 1891. Professionals worldwide trust the quality materials and fine craftsmanship of Morakniv. Knife blade blank only, does not include handle or sheath.
Mora woodcarving knives are well known and appreciated precision tools that are used by wood carvers all over the world, including places like Nusnäs where one of Sweden’s most recognized national symbols – the Dala Horse is carved.
This knife has a thin, tapered 49mm-long blade of laminated steel.
WARNING - these knives are extremely sharp and need to be handled with care.
NOTE FROM MANUFACTURER:
"Any rust that is formed on the blade is because of the soft iron at the side of the blade and the higher content of carbon in the steel that is used. The soft laminated steel is highly desirable for woodworking, and Morakniv are the only company that produce it."
We recommend the use of camellia oil as a rust preventative oil that should be regularly used on these knives.
