Review: Morakniv Companion Heavy duty MG

Ever since I watched rurouni kenshin on TV more than 10 years ago, I’ve been wanted to own my own blade, a beautiful blade that i can depend on. But I was still in junior high school at that time so I wasn’t able to own a blade.

My last post before this was about my first blade, a folding knife, and this time, I will review Morakniv Companion Heavy duty MG, my second knife, a fixed blade from Morakniv, Sweden.

I got the knife from amazon for 16 USD, the best knife for its price. The shipping cost to Indonesia was what make it expensive 🙂

It’s a sturdy 3,2 mm thick carbon steel blade with 104 mm blade length, its total length is 225 mm and weights around 135 gr

 

it is a partial tang blade, means the tang is around 3/4 the length of its handle. see that 3,2 mm blade thickness? love it!

and it features scandi grind

means it is easy to resharpen and provides good control in woodcarving.

The handle is very rubbery and provides nice grip even for small asian hands.

the blade

It comes sharp out of the box, tried to cut a piece of paper and it cuts nicely without even bending the paper.

Overall, I am satisfied with the quality of this knife. You can use this to cut groceries, meat, wood carving, self defense, assassination, and many more.

i love how mora made the blade mirror polished, just love that bling bling. lol.

and remember, knife is a tool, it can be used as a weapon too, use it wisely.

cheers!
