Our Verdict

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

Other knives can be too smooth and slippery making it easy for one to cut themself whilst carving. However with this Morakniv Wood Carving 106 Knife with Laminated Steel Blade, the handle comes with a very reasonably sized handle.

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