Mora Vintage Custom Knife
Referring to the design of the puukko knife, Mora Vintage Custom was conceived as a universal knife designed to perform various tasks in the bosom of nature. The size, shape of the blade and the design of the handle are derived from the well-known, refined in ancient times shapes straight from Finnish soil. When designing the knifemaker Jakub Sliwka focused on refreshing this model in his own way, but not losing the features of the knife developed over the years, which have been proven for years. The result is a knife with very useful features, but also eye-catching workmanship and design.
Premium Elmax steel as the core of the knife construction
The Mora Vintage Custom knife is a hidden tang design (blade with a pin hidden in the handle) made of the highest quality Elmax steel (chrome-vanadium-molybdenum powder steel). Elmax is one of the few steels available on the market in the absolute top quality of materials used in the production of premium knives. The Elmax blade is extremely resistant to overload, stays sharp for a long time (wears very slowly) and has excellent anti-corrosion properties.
A universal blade for any task
The blade with a spine thickness of 3,5 mm, made in the drop point style (puukko shape), with a high flat cut, ensures smooth cutting and performing various tasks (piercing, planing, preparing meals, etc.). We have a 115 mm blade at our disposal, the spine of which is deliberately finished more sharply, allowing for efficient work with the flint.
Robust ergonomic Micarta handle
Grips are made of Brown Jute Micarta laminate, resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids, with high resistance to mechanical damage. Micarta, known for its excellent properties, also visual (it can be styled like a natural material), has a non-slip, rough structure. Micarta has a liner in the form of a carbon fiber ring. The handle has handguard formed from Micarta. The handle has a hole at its end, which is used to additionally secure the knife against loss with a rope, paracord, etc.
Robust Kydex holster
The Mora Vintage Custom knife is equipped with a Kydex holster in a coyote color for carrying and storing it. Kydex is characterized by high impact and scratch resistance, low moisture absorption, resistance to various weather conditions and many chemicals. Holsters made of it are used comfortably and long-term. The holster is attached to the belt with a nylon eyelet. The knife holster is equipped with through pins to which you can attach a tinder (not included) or other equipment. They can also be used to mount a knife, e.g. to a backpack, a harness element or a Molle® solution.
