Introducing the Morakniv Garberg Full-Tang Bushcraft Knife

mora-garberg

Thanks to a video on Dave Canterbury’s YouTube channel, we can get a peek at the Garberg, the first affordable full tang knife from Morakniv. It looks to have everything that people have been clambering for… except for one thing…

UPDATE: See the end of the article for pricing information

It seems that they are releasing the Garberg in stainless steel only at this time. Don’t get me wrong, the stainless Morakniv uses is not bad at all, but I was hoping for carbon steel. Other than that, the specs look spot on.

UPDATE: MSRP is a little higher than expected. $110 dollars for the knife with leather sheath, and $100 for a version with a polymer sheath. For reference, the MSRP of the stainless Morakniv Bushcraft is a mere $53.99

  1. I have only one request. That a left handed sheath be made available, or an adjustable sheath be made for Lefties such as myself.

  2. That is a pretty good looking knife. A little on the high side of what I was expecting regarding the price. I was thinking $75 tops. At $100 it has a lot of competition. Maybe the street price will be lower. It is still a nice knife. It reminds me of a scandi grind Fallkniven F1.

    • “my question is, will the $100 mora significantly out perform the $15 mora?”

      it won’t, and it won’t matter since they’ll still sell a bunch to the crowd.

      the $50 Moras don’t outperform the $15 ones and I don’t see anything here (except perhaps the sheath and the ability to bust a windshield) that would lead me to believe this one will too.

      you’re getting to the point ($85) where you can afford a good axe to go along with your $15 Mora (ultralight crowd excluded)
