My motocamping gear #1 Morakniv Bushcraft Black
I’m reviewing some of the tried and tested things I take on my moto-camping trips, a decent knife that’ll hold an edge is one of those essentials. For the last five years I’ve been using a Morakniv Bushcraft Black which I can highly recommend.
I’ve used this for all sorts of tasks from light whittling ? to ‘kitchen work’ to batoning wood for kindling. I’ve never carved a spoon ? but I have no doubt it’d do the job ?.
Pros: A reasonably priced knife from a well-respected Swedish manufacturer. Carbon steel blade which holds an edge and is much easier to sharpen than stainless steel. 4” / 11cm long, 3.2mm thick scandi ground blade.
Cons: None I’ve comes across so far, though always look after my knives, axes, etc.
As it’s a fixed blade it usually lives in one of my panniers along with the camping gear, for a folding knife I usually carry an Opinel No 8.
