Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert knife with plastic sheath, flint and diamond sharpener, features, design features, overview.
The very first Morakniv knife in the Bushcraft series was the result of an experiment. The handle of the classic Mora 911 knife was mounted on the blade of a rather popular Mora Outdoor 2000 knife. The experiment was successful and as a result several more models appeared, based on existing blades and handles. For example, such as Mora Bushcraft Force, Mora Bushcraft Signal, Mora Bushcraft Triflex and others.
Currently, the Morakniv Bushcraft series of knives is represented by seven models. All of them are united and distinguished from other Morakniv knives primarily by the thickness of the blade, instead of the usual 2.2 or 2.5 mm, the blades of the Bushcraft series knives have a thickness of 3.2 mm. Survival knife models are also equipped with a flint and diamond sharpener.

And one knife from the Bushcraft series, even has a blade serrator.

Short review video about Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert.
Compared to other Morakniv knives, the 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel blade on the Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert looks very powerful and brutal. Traditionally Scandinavian slopes and zeroing, without micro-drives. Combined blade processing, sandblasting with polishing. It looks just fine. Butt with very sharp edges, it is not only convenient for them to extract sparks from the flint, but also for example, you can quickly remove the bark from the branches.
A short video about this.
The handle of the knife Morakniv Bushcraft Survival is made of soft-touch rubber, quite voluminous and ergonomic. It lies well in the hand, evenly distributes the load during power work. The pronounced stops help to hold and control the knife during some operations.
The Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert sheath is especially and separately worth it; they are made of heat-resistant plastic. The design is very successful. The knife in the scabbard sits very tight, without stirring, and it gets very easily. There are two suspensions for the sheath, both are attached to the sheath through a quick coupling.
The clip will be more likely to be in demand for a long stay in any one place, for example, in the base camp. The knife along with the sheath can be easily suspended or removed. But the solid loop is more useful in the event that there are many movements, especially in the dark. Then the risk of losing the knife with the sheath will be minimal. Well, or if there is a rafting on the river or overcoming some kind of obstacle.
To attach the flint and diamond sharpener, a separate curly plastic overlay is made on the sheath of the Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert. A place to store flint was chosen quite well. The flint itself is fixed there very securely, you want not to lose.
But an openly located diamond sharpener will most likely clog up with all kinds of rubbish. Cling and shag the floors of clothes when carrying a knife on a belt or belt. Or harm nearby objects by being packed inside your backpack. In general, such an arrangement on the scabbard, not only not thought out, but rather not very rational.

General Morakniv Bushcraft Survival Desert Knife Impressions.
I definitely liked the knife. Simple and thoughtful design, time-tested stainless steel on the blade. Convenient for sharpening, especially in the field, downhill. The knife can withstand very severe loads. At the same time, do not forget that the installation of the blade in the hilt of a horseman. Therefore, the particularly sophisticated bullying of Morakniv Bushcraft Survival may not survive. And then you better buy a tourist knife of a different type.
Practical scabbard with two suspensions, just about any situation is just fine. Bonus flint can and will most of the time remain unclaimed. But when it is needed, it will definitely be in place, and not somewhere at the bottom of the backpack that sailed away with the boat accidentally untied.
Diamond sharpener is a necessary thing and will be in demand not only for straightening or sharpening a knife. Just need to cover it somehow. For example, masking tape. Or, which will be more suitable, wind over a scabbard, and accordingly sharpeners, five to six meters 550 or 750 paracords.
