Mora Erik Frost 120 Woodcarving Knife Reviews

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

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

In addition, the blade is bendable which makes this knife ideal for carpentry and whittling. The knife has a slim, pointed laminated steel blade for great durability with good edge-retention. The tang of the blade runs through the entire handle, which makes the knife strong and well balanced.

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.

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, chip carving 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.

Carving wood requires concentration and precision. When all focus is on how the knife carves away slither by slither of the subject, one can get an almost meditative feeling of being here and now. When we create our craft knives we use carefully selected laminated steel for the blade. It is easy to re-sharpen with a whetstone, so you never need to compromise on sharpness.

Great tool for the price. You may have to touch them up after a long while, but thats all. Just touch them up.

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 Mora Wood Carving knife would be great to take along on a camping trip. It is ideal for carving wood in hobby or survival situations.

  • Stainless steel, without sheath, total length 203 mm, very useful for hollow carving too.
  • Something that becomes very apparent when buying tools for this hobby is that it can get expensive for the better quality products.
  • Should be a fine little Sloyd knife like the 106 Mora.

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.

sharp and last a lifetime. Our woodcarving knives are well known and appreciated precision tools that are used by wood carvers in Nusn’s, for example.

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.

Great knife to start off with if you want to make small carving or if you’re saving up to get a better knife. I would recommend getting the Mora 106 since it isn’t that much more than the basic Mora, the handle is much more comfortable, and it’s edge retention is superior as well. It also shaves off larger wooden material without stressing the knife. Sorry, this item doesn’t ship to United States. Contact the shop to find out about available shipping options.

Do not twist the blade while carving. This adds a lot of stress to the edge of the bade and it’s certainly not good for maintaining a long edge retention. Instead, you’ll want to make straight push cuts and it will stay sharp much longer. If you find yourself doing this be sure to correct your mistake after sharpening it, which is very easy to do with this knife.
