Your Morakniv 106 Wood Carving knife is made in Sweden from Laminated Steel – layers of high carbon steel where the core is hardened to 59-60 HRC surrounded by a softer alloyed steel layer. This steel is hot rolled which results in a strong material but one that has a rougher surface finish. These knifes are razer sharp right out of the package and the sturdy blade allows you to carver harder woods. The Mora knifes have been used by carvers and bushcrafters for many years. The Mora 106 knife is about 7 1/2" overall length with a 3 1/8" long blade. Sheath included.
