Mora Companion Carbon Steel
The Mora Companion carbon steel knife is a solid all-purpose belt knife for the farm, camp, bushcraft use, or simply stowed in your glove box as a back up. It is made from Swedish high carbon steel, hardened to 59-60 on the Rockwell Scale. This gives the knife excellent edge retention, while maintaining the ease of sharpening that carbon steel knives are known for.
It clicks firmly into the sheath for safe keeping, and has a thumb “nub” to help pull the knife out. The belt loop fits over the belt, so you don’t have to remove your belt to take the knife on and off.
Note: Carbon steel is known and loved for its ability to hold a keen edge while being easy to sharpen, on the flip side it is also known to rust. To avoid this, simply wipe off your knife after use and apply a coat of oil from time to time. Over time it will patina to a lovely, unique shade of gray, further protecting the steel from rust. You can also force a patina on a new knife.
