Morakniv Wood Carving 105 Knife is a small wood carving knife that comes with a thin blade. If you are looking for a knife that is thin, tapered, and has laminated steel then this Morakniv Wood Carving 105 Knife should probably be on your list. 

Coming with a 3.2-inch blade of laminated steel, and an oiled birch wood handle, this blade is pretty much cute but still works great as a wood carving tool. 

The laminated Steel features layers of high carbon steel with a core that is hardened to 59-60 HRC, and is surrounded by a softer alloyed steel layer. The steel on this blade is hot rolled which makes it stronger and gives it a rougher surface unlike most blades out there. 

The blade also has a variation in colors on the surface which gives it a neat and edgy look. One of the best things about this knife is that it can stay sharp for the longest time. 

Pros 

  • Comes made from stainless steel
  • Comes with a lifetime warranty
  • Is strong and durable
  • Stays sharp for a very long time
  • Is small and easy to work with

Cons

  • The blade may be too small and short for certain tasks
  • Is not as cheap when compared to other knives of its size

Measurements 

  • Blade Thickness: 0.08″ (2.0 mm), 
  • Blade Length: 3.2″ (82 mm), 
  • Total Length: 7.9″ (200 mm), 
  • Weight: 2.4 oz. (68g)

Durability

Morakniv has never disappointed when it comes to durability. Their blades come with some of Sweden’s finest steel that are either laminated or stainless.

This knife however comes with the best of both worlds. It has a laminated stainless steel knife that was hot rolled giving it a rougher and tougher exterior.

The handle is wood. To be specific it is oiled birch wood and even though it may cancel out the ergonomic design that most of the knives come with it is still tough and strong enough to withstand some tough work. It is not a secret that wood is not fireproof which is probably the only bad thing about this whole knife.

Price

When it comes to the price. This knife comes with a reasonable price tag that matches up with the standard it sets as well as the features that it brings out. Though for a knife it’s size may come out as more to the high end, the price is completely worth it and reasonable for everything that this knife offers.

Our Verdict

When it comes to wood carving, there are so many things that we have to consider when choosing right now. Looking at this Morakniv Wood Carving 105 Knife I have to say that it certainly ticks all the necessary boxes.

The only thing that certainly takes away some points is the fact that it has a regular wooden handle that is not ergonomic but other than that, I’d recommend this knife for any woodcarver out there.
