Morakniv Basic 511 Knife
Basic 511 is the most used of Morakniv classic knives. Appreciated and loved by professionals and hobby craftsmen for generations, it’s a proper Morakniv knife.
About Basic 511The solid finger guard optimizes safety and the new, larger-shaped handle makes the knife sit even better in your hand. The blade is made of high quality carbon steel, manufactured in Mora according to Morakniv’s secret recipe. The carbon steel also makes the knife easier to re-sharpen so you can use it over and over again. However, keep in mind that carbon steel can be affected by moisture and corrosive environments so make it a habit to wipe your knife and oil the blade after using it.
This knife is not compatible with a fire starterThis knife is designed and intended for Scandinavian construction workers. Here, Morakniv’s priority is a sharp and durable edge with a good grip, which means that the look of the spine isn’t a high priority feature. You are more than welcome to use any of Morakniv’s knives for your intended needs, but keep in mind that the spine will be “raw” (not grinded) on most craftsmen and construction knives. Therefore, it’s not compatible with a fire starter.
Carbon steel: Blades made of carbon steel can be hardened up to HRC 59-60 and enter the maximum edge at a small price. Please note that knives made of carbon steel can get a gray patina over the time. This change never affects the quality of the knife negatively. On the contrary: it gives the knife even better protection against corrosion.
