Cutting tools have been forged in the Swedish town of Mora for over 400 years. The Mora Knife, developed by Erich Frost over 100 years ago, is synonymous with functionality and reliability. The blades are made of either carbon steel 1095 or rustproof steel 12C27. The used carbon steel (58-60 HRC) is characterised by its outstanding sharpness, ease of sharpening and long edge life. Some carbon steel blades are offered as a mono steel version (C), others as a triple-coated laminated version (L) that has a more flexible blade. The rustproof blade steel (56-58 HRC) (S) has a slightly longer edge life than the carbon steel. The oiled birch handles are firmly attached to the full-length tang.
NOTE: Carbon steel which will rust if care not taken
