The Morakniv Garberg carbon steel version with leather sheath

https://morakniv.se/en/product/garberg-black-c-with-leather-sheath/

This knife caught my eye a while back, but I never had a chance to pick one up until recently. It's sat unused for no particular reason on my bench for a couple of months, but now is the time to put it to work. Over the next few weeks I plan to put it through its paces, and see how it does.

Morakniv makes some great knives, so I'm sure this one will be good as well. I have several of the cheap stainless knives, but this one is considerably different. The Garberg is a full tang knife made of carbon steel and I also have a leather sheath for it.

As I go along I will post updates on what I think and how it does with various tasks. It will be fun to see how she does.

No surprises today with the Garberg. It handles fire wood processing with ease.

Batoning, easy.

Feather sticks, easy.

Small wood processing, no problems at all.

My first impression is that this is an excellent knife. The size, weight, and shape of it is just right for most woods chores, and I look forward to using it some more in the coming days.

Once the rains start I'll work on some fire craft using it, but that may be a while. Next up, I'll work on some other tasks to see how it performs.
