rated 5.0 of 5 stars

Another great, inexpensive knife from Morakniv. I purchased this knife to go into my car as a safety/rescue tool. With its blunt tip and razor sharp serrated edge, it easily cuts through any items I might run across while driving (seat belt, clothes, bandages, etc.).

Pros

  • Hi vis orange
  • Extremely sharp out of the box
  • Inexpensive
  • Larger girth handle fits my larger hand
  • Stainless steel so it won't rust

Cons

  • None

I purchased this knife a few months ago to go in my car in the rare case I need an emergency knife for cutting seat belts or assisting in an accident. Moraknivs never disappoint in their delivery and cost and this one is an example of how one can afford to have a variety of Moraknivs for different situations. Aside from the Light My Fire Mora knife all my other ones have been less than $20.

This knife comes in a high visibility orange so it's quite easy to see and out of the box it was razor sharp.  The mostly serrated edge grips material such as rope, webbing, seat belt straps, etc. and cuts through it without much effort. The blunt tip on it is designed to slide under material such as clothing or bandages without cutting skin.

The only thing I didn't consider when putting this in my car is the "concealed weapon" laws in Colorado. A neighbor of mine who's a policeman saw it in my door storage slot one day and warned me that I could get in trouble if I ever get pulled over for a traffic violation because this knife would be considered "concealed".

Never even crossed my mind, so now I put it somewhere less obvious but still reachable in case an emergency arises. Guess if they search my car I'd still get in trouble, but hopefully not.
