Tested for you: MORAKNIV BASIC 511 - belt knife
We tested the Morakniv 511 for you and now we want to share the results with you. The price might suggest that the knife is poorly made, but that is far from true! The blade of the knife is made of very durable carbon steel. Despite the fact that this kind of steel tends to accumulate slight rust or react with other substances easily, it has substantial advantages compared to stainless steels. First of all, it is harder and retains its edge longer. Furthermore, carbon steel can be forged into a finer blade, which makes is easy to sharpen. The blade's upper edge has a rough and corse surface, which is excellent for fire steels for example.
With a blade length of 9.1cm the knife is perfect for use as an all-round knife. We tested the knife in pretty much every task and could not find any issues. We want to specifically mention the grip. The knife fits your hands exceptionally well and therefore makes for a very firm and secure grip. We rarely see such a good design with knives in this category. Both right- and left-handed individuals will have no trouble using this knife. Thanks to a comfortable and cleverly positioned finger guard on the grip the knife can be utilized without you having to worry about slipping.
It comes with a plastic sheath that can be secured on a belt quick and firmly. Despite the knife sitting quite firmly inside the sheath, it can be pulled back out easily and is then ready for use. In summary, the Morakniv Basic 511 is a perfect companion for almost all tasks and definitely gets a recommendation from us. The value-for-money ratio is second to none, so if you are looking for a durable, affordable and good-looking knife, this one certainly is a great choice.
