Morakniv knives are built for function. The characteristics of the knife blade is the main focus – high quality, design and sharpness. Morakniv carbon steel blades are hardened to 58 - 60 on the Rockwell scale, while stainless blades are hardened to 57 - 58. Some carbon steel Mora knives for sale have blades that are constructed from laminated steel: a layer of higher-carbon and harder (58 - 60 Rockwell) steel in the middle, sandwiched between two layers of lower-carbon, more durable steel to add strength. This results in a blade which is both tough, durable, and retains its sharpness without sacrificing blade strength.
