Something that becomes very apparent when buying tools for this hobby is that it can get expensive for the better quality products. While this is true it doesn’t mean that you should start out with the most expensive ones. The basic Mora wood carving knife is one of the most affordable knives I have reviewed.

Mora woodcarving knives have a thin, tapered blade of laminated steel. Knives from Mora in Sweden have had an excellent reputation for more than 100 years. These tools are well balanced in the relation of their aesthetics, the quality of their steel, flexcut their usefulness and especially their price. This knife with the straight laminate steel blades can sometimes be found to have a knotty or unfinished blade surface. It comes from the rollers in the rolling mill where the laminate steel is fused.

If you want to get really advanced, you can carve a couple of notches in the actual handle to suit your preferences.

Slöjdkniv 120 has a narrow and pointed knife blade made of laminated steel, which gives it superior toughness and edge resiliency. The full tang, which runs the full length of the handle, gives it strength and stability.

I’m new to carving and have purchased both the Mora 120 and 106. Impressed with both knives so far but have to say the shorter length of the 120 has given a little more confidence.

A really obvious thing I noticed when getting the Mora was it’s fine tip. Some people prefer a drop point blade but an advantage this gives is making holes in your wood. Needless to say other detail work is really easy to do with its fine point.

It is a good knife to begin with or maybe you’ve lost or had one of your pricier knives stolen and just wanted something to continue carving with while you save up for a better one. This beavercraft would be great to take along on a camping trip. It is ideal for carving wood in hobby or survival situations.

Three layers of steel are worked together and under tremendous forces a knife blade is created with unmatched toughness and edge resistance. In other words, it is a trace of the solid craftsmanship that our craft knives undergo in manufacturing. It is illegal to supply a knife or fire related item to anyone under the age of 18.

The wood also gives it a natural feeling and also gives you the possibility to form the handle for optimal shape. The handle used also comes from another Mora knife which is the 510. Since it is plastic it wasn’t as comfortable as the traditional wood handles like the 106 comes with. The blade isn’t centered in the handle, which doesn’t really bother me much but that’s just me. Small but robust wood carving knife with a short blade for working on intricate hobby projects.

The blade is fixed onto the wooden handle so there is no folding option. It has a small steel blade that is seriously sharp to handle any of your carving needs. The Mora Wood Carving Knife comes with a 2.0mm thick blade that’s 3.14 inches long of carbon steel, the same blade that the Mora 106 uses, so it’s edge retention is pretty sharp. Although it came sharp, I did have to hone it for a couple minutes after cutting a couple pieces of wood, but after that it held an edge really well. The blade is very narrow and easy to sharpen, and it definitely is a quality blade.

The Erik Frost 120 is an excellent (dare we say indispensable) woodcarving knife with a thin, tapered blade of laminated steel, and an oiled birchwood handle. 7 1/2″ overall. 3″ thin, tapered, laminated steel blade. Black composition belt sheath.

Don’t expect it to hold the knife in safely. You’ll have to make your own sheath. Like I said, typical Mora.
