Mora Eldris Knife
A survival knife could be lightweight and compact with a blade length of just 2.25”?
The Morakniv Eldris is the smallest of three new survival knives coming from Morakniv of Sweden. Coming in at an overall length of 5 5/8”, it is designed to keep you going when you’re out there in the wild, but is intended to be hung from your neck, slung from your pack, or stored in your pocket too. The Eldris’s blade is made from the company standard 12C27 steel and features a ground spine, which is designed to be used with a fire starter. Rounding out the features of this mighty mite is the rugged polypropylene handle complete with rubbery TPE inserts for the ultimate grip.

The Eldris has a pretty specific purpose, and that is fire craft. It has an incredibly sharp cutting edge, and an ice skate sharp spine. Both lend well to making shavings of wood, feather sticks, and striking a ferro rod. It throws sparks like a champ. It makes feather sticks like a champ.
The spine can be used to shave wood off of a stick to save your cutting edge, or for shaving magnesium off of a block. It has been added to my fire kit, and that is where it shall live. It could be used as a pocket knife, but is a bit fat for my taste. When I carry a fixed blade, I prefer it to be slender to no draw attention. It is a very small knife, that handles like a large knife and I highly recommend it.
