As you probably know by now, the area around Mora has a solid experience of knife making and the local manufacturers have never been involved in the manufacturing of folding knives. Although Jönsson’s so-called barrel-knife was developed once, and the sheath maker Rombo-Anders Eriksson-Ström each produced a variant, the latter of which never came into production (see this prototype above).
Morakniv Eldris (S)
Traditionally, we northerners have generally demanded a more solid and durable knife. The Nordic knives have often been the obvious universal tool and have been used for so many different things that it was considered necessary to have a knife that had such a width that it could be used in everything from tool making, carpentry, carving, hunting, and fishing, as well as for slaughter and cutting, cooking and all kinds of household chores.
In the other Swedish knife town Eskilstuna, however, they had a different attitude and therefore produced a folding knife. At regular intervals, however, the question also arises with us at Morakniv and the last time the issue was on the agenda it resulted in our pocket knife, Morakniv Eldris. But who knows what will happen in the future.
