This carving knife is perfect for a wide variety of jobs, from casual whittling to shaping spoons. The longer blade allows for some variety in the way you cut with it, and the rigid spine stands up to any amount of pressure applied by your hand during the carving process. The barrel-shaped handle is comfortable for small and large hands alike, while the shorter blade and guard make this perfect for children and beginner wood-carvers.
Mora woodcarving knives are well-known precision tools that are used by woodcarvers the world over, including in Nusn's. This is where one of Sweden's most recognized national symbols the "Dala Horse" is carved.
About Mora Knives - There is a very long knife-making tradition in Mora, Sweden. For over 400 years folks in the town of Ostner have been forging knives to export around the world, and in 1891 a man named Frost-Erik Erson returned home from North America. He started a small company that made knives, among other things, and it would slowly grow to serve an ever-growing demand in Europe. Over time knife makers in Mora consolidated, and eventually Mora was aquired by another local maker, KJ Eriksson in 1988, and the name Mora of Sweden was trademarked. Today, they are recognized across the world as high-quality blades for those that enjoy the outdoors.
