The Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Orange

This particular Morakniv Bushcraft survival knife model comes with a fitted hard sheath with a drain hole, a fire starter, diamond sharpener, 2 belt clips, and is available in a few different colors.

I got my knife in Orange. It's easy to spot amongst everything else lying around base camp. So, If you're looking for a good reliable knife that doesn't break the bank you should check out this bushcraft knife or other choices in the Morakniv collection. 

  • Blade length: 4.3" 
  • Blade width: 1/8" at thickest point
  • Total knife length: 9.1"
  • Weight 5.4 oz

I bring this knife with me every time I hike or on a camp trip. It weighs a little more that the most knives in its range and with similar specs, but I don't hesitate as it's an essential need for me when I do venture out, and because of the price, if I lose it I won't be crying about it. 

The first thing I tried out with this knife was the fire starter. The sheath has teeth that hold the attachment in place and you can somewhat easily slide the fire starter in and out. There's a protective coating that has to be scraped off the fire starter so don't be too discouraged if it doesn't give you sparks straight away. Using the back of the knife's blade you can easily scrape some magnesium chips to get your tinder to ignite. Trust me I was really stoked out when I got a flame. So much so, my camp buddies all wanted a go. 

The sheath is a little clunky. But, the pros vs the cons on this model, the pros definitely outweigh the fact that it's quite a voluminous knife. 

The knife itself has a rubber handle so it has an ergonomic grip for different hand sizes. I myself have small women's hands so the rubber grip really helps when using this knife for making feather sticks or splitting logs. If you get clammy hands like I do or have to handle a knife in wet conditions, the extra grip works in your favor for safer use and stability.


Another feature is the affixed diamond sharpener, so you never have to worry if your blade gets a little dull. The blade is extremely sharp! You can go from splitting wood to cutting meat and veggies for a nice camp out meal with ease.

In conclusion I'm not an expert at knives, but I do own a few and this Mora knife is the latest one I've added to my collection. I would highly recommend this knife for man, woman, or child. It's definitely a great all purpose knife to have and for a reasonable price.

Great quality-to-price ratio.


  • Simply and intuitively used


  • A bit too broad edge

Attached firestriker makes it not only knife but survival kit.

Nice design, sturdy construction.
