Finn BlackBlade™ (S)
A handmade solid, full tang knife designed to fit in your pocket or backpack on your next hike. With an ergonomically unique handle made of bright ash wood from European FSC® certified forests and a black knife blade made of recycled Swedish stainless steel, the knife is always ready to perform. Whether it’s on foot uphill or by the campfire, Morakniv Finn is always close at hand.
The ergonomic handle made of carefully selected ash wood has a finger guard, and a 2.0 mm thick, black blade made of recycled Swedish stainless steel, which provides both strength and stability in every cut. The black PC-coating creates a balanced contrast between the bright ash wood and the shiny edge of the blade. The vegetable tanned leather sheath protects the sharp edge from surfaces that can make the knife dull. Finn is also compatible with the accessory Morakniv Dangler 10 with Button, which enables you to attach the knife to your belt.

The family names that tell our story
There has always been a strong craft tradition in Mora, thanks to the proximity to Swedish nature, rich in materials such as iron ore and timber. People from Mora have made sharp knives for the rest of the world for more than 400 years.
As long as there have been knife makers in the area, Anders and Erik have dominated men’s first names for several generations, just as Anna and Kerstin have done for the women. In fact, children were often given the same name as their parents or grandparents. When there were too many people in the same village named Anders or Anna, a family name was added before the first name.
The family name could be taken from a previous relative’s skill, an ancestor’s name, or from some geographical phenomenon. Then an Anna could be named Smids-Anna, whose ancestors were a blacksmith, or Anders could be named Sol-Anders because he came from the neighbouring island, Sollerön.
You see, these family names share a common thread throughout our history. That’s why we proudly present our new collection of wooden-handled knives. The names of which come from people who in one way or another were involved in the foundation for knife manufacturing in Mora. With the knives Finn, Wit, Lok & Rombo, we look decades back in time and note that the story of our dear Morakniv begins long before our company first saw the light of day.
The first recognised manufacturing knife factory was founded in 1870 by the innovator Finn-Anders Andersson,
who at the time worked at Mora Mekaniska Fabriks AB, which manufactured sewing machines.
FA Andersson’s Täljknivsfabrik’s success really took off when the sewing machine factory was
shut down a few years later due to overwhelming competition from abroad.
An anecdote with a glimpse into the eye
“Born in 1848 into a family of watchmakers, Finn-Anders Andersson had a natural talent for engineering. In his early twenties, he had already figured out how to make knives in his father’s workshop but had to carry the knife blanks to the grindstone, seven kilometers away. Legend has it that he was asked once if it wasn’t time to get a bicycle. With a glimpse in his eye, he replied that he couldn’t possibly carry that too.”
