This is a sweet little backpacker knife that could be perfect for those who want the strength of a fixed-blade, but prefer small package.
The Morakniv Eldris is a pocket size fixed-blade knife features a 2.2-inch blade made of high-quality 12C27 Swedish stainless steel.
The Eldris neck knife kit rounds out the product nicely, making it the ultimate backpacker knife.
“In addition to a top knife, you also get an accessory kit that takes Eldris to the next level,” according to the Morakniv website “There’s a paracord rope so you can hank the knife around your neck, and a secondary lock so the knife sits even more securely in the sheath. The kit also includes a fire lighter that matches the size of the knife, perfect when it’s time to light the campfire or camp stove.”
The spine of the blade is ground to make the edge suitable for use with a fire starter. This means that you do not need to use the edge of the blade when starting your fire, which makes your knife stay sharp for longer.
The Neck Knife Kit includes one meter of paracord for a lanyard for carrying the knife around your neck. The secondary locking strap prevents the knife from falling out of the sheath. The lock is designed to slide on and off easily.
Backpackers that obsess over weight-savings will appreciate that the Eldris kit weighs 2.8 ounces.
The Morakniv Eldris neck knife kit retails for about $50, but you can get it at KnifeCenter.com for $36.95.
