The wooden handles have an ergonomic design, making them easier and more comfortable to use. Though the blade is laminated, the handle is not and may stain a bit on certain elements. Likewise, as the handles are made from wood, they may not be as resistant to fire and cracking as any other wood. 

Price

For such a great knife that looks great and works just as great, the price tag on this knife can comfort anyone’s wallet. The Morakniv Wood Carving 106 Knife with Laminated Steel Blade comes at an affordable price which, if it were higher, nobody would complain about. 

The materials used to construct the knife are not as expensive in the raw material market, but the designs used and the craftsmanship used to add an ounce of price to the knife. For one looking for a crafting knife at an affordable price, this one ere may be worth checking.

Our Verdict

Very few beginners know exactly what to expect when choosing a knife when it comes to crafting. Some knives tend to be a bit too hard on the handle resulting in blisters in the hands and fair accidents. 

Other knives can be too smooth and slippery, making it easy for one to cut themself while carving. The Morakniv Wood Carving 106 Knife has a reasonably sized handle.

Besides the size of the handle. It is affordable. The laminated blade allows it to last longer than regular blades out there. It can withstand certain conditions and elements that would rather be corrosive to other knife blades. So, this knife isn’t as bad and may not be as good, but it definitely will not be a disappointment.
