The names that tell their story: Kansbol

Many small cottages and barns. The cattle graze on the plot outside and every morning starts before sunrise with milking the cows or goats. This was the scenery of the Swedish 'fäbod', a place where people historically spent their summers working and let their cattle run free in the surrounding nature. Every village had their own 'fäbod', many times even two or more. This way, their ancestors could walk with their cattle from one settlement to another during the summer. In the region around Mora there have always been many 'fäbodar' and many of them still exist today.

One of these 'fäbodar' is called Kansbol. It originally belonged to the village outside of Mora where their factory lies and all of their knives are made. Kansbol lies on a mountain and the view of the surrounding nature scenery is magnificent. The wooden walls of the cottages are filled with messages from the men and women who walked here with their cattle. 'Anna', 'Kerstin', 'Erik' and 'Anders', have all carved their names on the walls as a reminder to us of the hard and various work they performed. To name their knife Kansbol after the place and the people who lived there is Morakniv's way of paying tribute to their roots. The Kansbol knife--the flexible knife that can take on a great variety of outdoor tasks--is their interpretation of the life once lived at the 'fäbod' of Kansbol.

Knife Features

  • The coil shape in the heart of the knife is strongly related to the heritage of Morakniv. The knife with the red coil-shaped handle is probably as well known as the famous Dala horse in Sweden.
  • The rhombus pattern is a traditional pattern that is present in many variations in Mora and the region of Dalarna. In the handle, the pattern provides a significantly improved grip. Besides its high functionality, it also pays a tribute to their region and history.
  • The outer shell of the handle is made of TPE, a rubbery polymer that provides a firm and secure grip.
  • The rear part of the handle has a hole for fastening a Lanyard, rope or other gadgets according to preference.
  • The handle has a built-in click lock between the sheath and handle to ensure that the knife stays in place when worn around the neck.
  • The core of the handle, visible in the barrel shape, is made of polypropylene. It is a polymer that makes the knife and the handle very rugged.
  • The symmetrical handle allows flexible use of the knife with a two-way fit in the sheath. The drop design on the back is big enough to keep the knife steady in your hand.
  • The knife is ground with a scandi grind which makes it easy to keep sharp.
  • The blade has a semi-matte finish appreciated among the outdoor community.
  • The blade is 2,5 mm thick and 108 mm long. It is made of high quality Swedish stainless steel (12C27) that is treated to optimal blade finish in their own factory.
  • The spine of the blade is ground to make the edge perfect for use with a fire starter. This means that you do not need to use the edge of the blade when starting your fire, which makes your knife stay sharp for longer.
  • The profile grind adds that extra touch to the blade. This is a very appreciated detail of Morakniv, that first appeared on their knives in the early 90s.
  • The profile grind makes the knife perfect for tasks that require precision.

Glad I got this one (even the wife is glad I got it)

Good general purpose backpacking knife! Quality steel, appropriate thickness, 3/4 tang makes a nice weight knife to carry. The blade is strong enough to baton with. The spine throws lots of sparks off a ferrous rod. The "scandi" grind shaves fine coils of wood for starting fires. The thinner front portion of the blade does nice detail work. The grip stays put in my hand. The "multi mount" can be used in a wide variety of ways. I currently have the mount on my backpack shoulder strap and the belt loop on my trouser belt. I can quickly move the sheath from the pack to my hip. I use this knife for wood, camp chores and fishing. This is the 3rd Mora I own and each one is a good dollar value. This knife is a permant part of my multi day wilderrness backpack

Great hunting/fishing/camping knife, may be a little light for bushcraft

Scandi grind with a solid blade and nonslip grip, couldn't ask for much more.
The blade was fairly sharp when I received it but a little TLC with am 800/100 stone and some stropping got it razor sharp.
It did almost everything I needed it to as a hunting and camp knife. I may grab a Garberg later on, I had difficulty with the Kansbol when it came to splitting the sternum of a buck and cutting through the pelvis.
