This is a specially designed woodcarving knife intended for detailed carving. The laminated carbon steel has unparalleled toughness that can withstand lateral bending and has a cutting resistance that optimises its carving properties. It is also easy to re-sharpen so you can experience enjoyable carving over and over again.
With a barrel-shaped oiled Scandinavian FSC® certified birch wood handle and an approximately 2.7 mm thick, tapered laminated carbon steel blade, you can take your creativity to new levels. The knife’s full rat tail tang, which runs through the entire handle, provides both strength and stability in each cut and the handle gives you the opportunity to shape it to your own needs or expression. The knife should always be in the polymer sheath when not in use, partly to minimise the risk of cutting injury but also to maintain sharpness. Laminated carbon steel will rust, so wipe and oil the blade after use. The classic laminated carbon steel woodcarving knives are appreciated by our greatest craftsmen Jögge “Surolle” Sundkvist & Beth Moen, as well as by generations of craftsmen with a love of carving.

We love differences
We are now strengthening the ties to nature and making sure to expand the variety of oiled birch used for the handle. They can thus be a little darker, lighter, clearer fiber directions or of another beautiful difference. This does not affect the quality in any way but rather gives the craft knives a more personal grip.
This knife with the straight laminate steel blades can sometimes be found to have a knotty or unfinished blade surface. It comes from the rollers in the rolling mill where the laminate steel is fused. Three layers of steel are worked together and under tremendous forces a knife blade is created with unmatched toughness and edge resistance. In other words, it is a trace of the solid craftsmanship that our craft knives undergo in manufacturing.
Although I own all the carving models I confess the N⁰122 is the only one with a Morakniv stamp, all my N⁰105s, 106s, 120s and even my hook Knives including the stacked leather customs are all Frosts/Erik Frost stamped and are all still going strong. The laminated steel with a true 0° scandi grind are perfect for carving tasks whether a spoon or kuksa or finer detailed work like celtic knotwork. A real pleasure to use and easy to maintain. There are other brands but the cream of the crop is always a Morakniv
Gal Jones –
An absolutely excellent carving knife. It is the perfect size and shape for detail work but strong enough to do more rough carving too. The single bevel blade is extremely simple to sharpen and holds an edge better than any knife I have ever owned before. The smaller size gives you excellent control and power for safer and cleaner cuts. This plus a small axe makes almost any whittling task possible. I could not recommend a tool for its price more highly.
