Mora knives are among the most respected and beloved fixed blades from around the world. These Swedish knives are reliable, relatively inexpensive, and perform better than most others. But there was something missing in the classic Morakniv knives: a full tang model.

Our Badass Knife of the Week is the long-awaited full tang fixed blade Mora knife: the Garberg.

The Morakniv Garberg is a powerful and relentless fixed blade that can take charge in any outdoor situation. This well-built knife is the first of the Mora knives to feature a full tang design. In fact, its extended tang provides extra strength and a surface for light hammering.

The 4.3-inch blade is optimized for performance and dependability. It starts with the Swedish Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel. This alloy is a high-grade knife steel that combines excellent edge performance with corrosion resistance. The scandi grind makes it easy to sharpen out in the field while the thick blade stands up to the toughest tasks. A semi-matte finish and a grinded spine round out the blade’s dedication to bushcrafting.

Named after a village where people have historically practiced hard work and self-sufficiency, the Garberg is manufactured in Mora, Sweden. Morakniv brings the same quality and construction to the Garberg as it does to all its models.

Because a handle is just as important as the blade, the Garberg proves expertly balanced with an extra-rugged polyamide handle. Morakniv brags that the specially made handle material is close to unbreakable and we see no reason to believe otherwise. A slot near the rear of the handle acts as a lanyard hole.
